Protecting Your Rights After an Impaired Driving Charge

There are seemingly endless variables that could affect an officer’s stopping you on suspicion of DUI/OVI/DWI. There are also countless variables that could affect your performance on field sobriety, blood alcohol or breath tests. Weather conditions, medical conditions, age, road conditions and inaccurate testing equipment could all contribute to you being unfairly stopped, arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Whether you are facing serious, even felony-level OVI charges, or a succession of speeding tickets or other traffic violations that are threatening your driving privileges, Edward R. La Rue is here to help. With over 25 years of trial and courtroom experience on his side, he represents clients throughout northeast Ohio, including faculty and students of local schools like Cleveland State University, Cuyahoga Community College, The Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University, John Carroll University, Kent State University, The University of Akron and Oberlin College.

The Experience You Need

Mr. La Rue has experience both prosecuting and defending all manner of traffic-related criminal cases, and he has in-depth knowledge of the science and procedures employed by law enforcement officials gathering evidence to support these charges. He also understands how disruptive it can be to lose your driver’s license. Without a license, your whole life and that of your home is impacted, as you have trouble getting to work, school or running household errands. Furthermore, alcohol-related violations like OVI also can carry jail time and often hefty fines — fines can be devastating and seemingly impossible for some people to pay, particularly in these challenging economic times.
