Dayton DUI Lawyer – Jeremiah Denslow

Have you been charged with drinking and driving in Dayton Ohio or the surrounding area? If so, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Would you like to be represented by a leading Dayton DUI lawyer instead of a lawyer who handles just a few DUI cases every year?
  • Do you want your Dayton DUI lawyer to be recognized by lawyer advocacy groups like National Advocacy for DUI Defense, Super Lawyers, the National Trial Lawyers, and Dayton DUI Attorneys.net?
  • Would you prefer a Dayton DUI lawyer who concentrates his practice on DUI defense instead of a Dayton DUI lawyer who also handles cases in personal injury, estate planning, probate, domestic relations, and child custody?
  • Would you like your Dayton DUI lawyer to set a limit on the number of clients he accepts at any given time so that he can give your case the time and attention that it deserves?
  • Do you want to hire a Dayton DUI lawyer who has a history of getting the majority of charges against his clients dismissed/reduced?

If you answered each of those questions in the affirmative, keep reading. Jeremiah Denslow is a top Dayton DUI lawyer who represents DUI clients in Montgomery, Greene, Warren, Butler, Preble, Darke, Miami and Clark Counties. Jeremiah structures his Dayton DUI defense practice using a very simple formula: Jeremiah structures his DUI defense practice using a very simple formula: (a) He is focused on DUI/OVI defense; (b) He only takes cases in Ohio; and (c) He only accepts a limited number of clients. If you think about his formula, it makes sense that he would be successful. Jeremiah’s practice is extremely focused on DUI and he accepts fewer clients than most other Dayton DUI lawyers. That means each client gets more attention, each case gets analyzed more thoroughly and clients are generally highly satisfied with the outcome of each case.

Dayton DUI/OVI/Drinking and Driving Explained in the Easiest Terms

Let’s look at the basics of Dayton DUI defense by asking what’s a DUI? Any Dayton DUI lawyer can tell you that operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (OVI), driving while impaired (DWI), and driving under the influence (DUI) are common phrases people use when talking about the statute/law that prohibits drinking and driving in Dayton, Ohio.  The charge makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs, or operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, also called a per se Dayton DUI violation. In addition, Ohio law has a higher tier drinking and driving charge, also called a super DUI, where a Dayton DUI driver has an extreme BAC concentration of 0.17% or more.

In Dayton, DUI is considered an extremely serious charge that carries extremely serious penalties if the driver is convicted. How serious?  For starters, a Dayton DUI carries mandatory jail time up to a maximum of 180 days, even for a first-time DUI offender. It also carries a mandatory Ohio license suspension anywhere from six months up to three years and a mandatory fine that can go over a $1000. In addition, Dayton DUI courts can require you to complete a chemical dependency treatment program and place DUI license plates onto your vehicle. Dayton DUI courts can also require you to install a device on your car called an ignition interlock. This device forces you to provide an alcohol-free breath sample every time you start your car.

Again, these are among the potential penalties for first time Dayton DUI cases. For individuals who are on a second DUI, third DUI or felony DUI, the penalties are much more serious—more mandatory jail time, higher fines, longer license suspensions and many collateral consequences. For a felony DUI in Dayton, Ohio, defendants can be sentenced to multiple years in prison. Unfortunately, Ohio judges do not have the discretion to go below the mandatory minimum sentences in a Dayton DUI case. Fortunately, the penalties discussed above only apply to drivers who are convicted of DUI. An experienced Dayton DUI lawyer may be able to prevent that from happening, depending on the facts and circumstances of your case. If you are facing DUI charges in Dayton or the surrounding areas, it’s important to contact a top Dayton DUI lawyer to see if he can get the case dismissed or reduced to something much less serious like a minor traffic violation.

No Dayton DUI arrest is perfect. Most Dayton DUI investigations include a number of witnesses, including police officers and the personnel who collect, store and test chemical samples.  As case law demonstrates time and time again, witnesses are human and they make mistakes.
