Dedicated to DUI Defense
DUI Defense Is All I Do
When you cruise the internet looking for DUI Defense Attorneys, be sure to look for these buzz words.
“The DUI lawyer(S)” “Our DUI Team” – This means that more than one member of the firm could be responsible for handling your charge. It is not uncommon to not know who will show up to handle your case until the court date. It is also not uncommon to be under the assumption that the attorney you met with will be “your” attorney. Ask who will represent me at your initial consultation.
At Babb & Rowland, the only person who will handle your case is Charles M. Rowland II.
“We have over X years of combined experience” – This is math, not experience. When you see attorneys add their years of experience, you can be sure that this means your DUI defense may be in the hands of someone who has fewer years than the attorney you met with. If you think you are paying for Michael Jordan only to find out that you are getting someone who attended a Michael Jordan basketball camp you may be disappointed.
At Babb & Rowland, the only person who will handle your case is Charles M. Rowland II. Charlie has over 20 years of DUI experience and a list of DUI credentials that rivals the leading DUI defense attorneys in the country. Learn more HERE.
Don’t Plead Guilty! Talk To Charlie
Do you think that you are guilty? Do you just want to “get it over with.” Do not plead guilty without speaking with a DUI attorney! We speak with people all the time who find themselves in terrible position. Motivated by shame and humiliation, they appear in court and let the court sentence them without the benefit of counsel. Drunk driving charges are one of the most serious charges prosecuted in a municipal court and carry tough mandatory sanctions.
HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE REASONS TO TALK WITH CHARLES M. ROWLAND II RIGHT AWAY
Every drunk driving charge carries a mandatory jail sentence. Most first-offense charges allow the jail time to be served in a 3-day program. However, if you blow over a .17, you face actual incarceration. Prosecutors may be willing to give you a “deal” if you present a plausible defense. Get an attorney to protect yourself.
Upon a plea of guilty, the court will address your license suspension. The court may give you a longer suspension than you think you should receive. Often a person will find themselves facing a multi-year suspension when they were told their license would only be gone for 90 days. Ask your DUI defense attorney about your potential loss of license.
With the changes in Ohio law (Annie’s Law), each court is using a court-specific approach to driving privileges. Having a good attorney that knows how to get you driving quick is vital. At DaytonDUI, we have a staff member who is dedicated to getting you back to driving as soon as possible.
CHILD SUPPORT & VISITATION
For years, MADD and other temperance groups have been asking for language in your divorce that would automatically alter your custody and/or visitation if you are convicted of a DUI. A conviction could also impact adoption proceedings and, in some cases, affect your negotiation position in a civil case.
DOCTORS, LAWYER, PILOTS, PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS, NURSES, TEACHERS, BARBERS, COSMETOLOGISTS AND STUDENTS: all of these groups face serious ramifications if you are convicted of a DUI. Having the right attorney will save you headaches down the road.
TRAVEL & IMMIGRATION
Canada’s IMMIGRATION AND REFUGEE PROTECTION ACT may prevent entry into Canada following a DUI conviction. In addition, you may face immigration or work visa problems entering some Middle-Eastern countries. These countries frown on any alcohol use. If your livelihood depends on travel you should consult a good immigration attorney and a good DUI defense attorney.
