Avvo Review

I contacted Mr. Suhre after being arrested for an OVI completely panicked and confused about the process, possibilities, and outcomes in front of me. He reached out personally on a Sunday and discussed what happened and the realities of my situation. After our conversation, I already felt just a little bit more at ease and hired him that evening. I highly recommend his and his team’s services for anyone in a similar situation.

I hired Rob to represent me for an OVI/possession charge. He was very knowledgeable regarding the matters and advised me regarding the best possible options that I could perform prior to my court date. He communicated my information accurately to the court and lobbied on my behalf for the most optimal outcome.

I am very grateful to Joseph for his help in my difficult case that lasted over two years, despite the complexity of the situation, he was always sure that we would win this case, he knows every letter of the law and he assures that there is always a way out. Once again, I thank Mr. Joseph for improving my situation. I recommend Suhre & Associates to everyone.

Avvo Review

Joe was recommended by a friend and reached out to me immediately, on a Sunday. I was an anxious mess, terrified and unsure of what I was facing with a DUI charge. Joe put me at ease right away. His knowledge, his clear explanations, his patience in answering all questions and his confidence made me feel well represented, aware of the process and all possible outcomes and much calmer. 

Avvo Review

Joe and his staff are are miracle workers. Faced with an OVI and several other charges, I was on the verge of losing everything. Within 2 minutes of a phone consultation Joe gave me a clear, realistic, set of goals for my case. He immediately found a legal technicality that allowed me to still drive my company vehicle, and I was able to keep my job. Joe then devised a strategy, and we stuck with it. Ultimately, Joe got all of my OVI charges dismissed

Avvo Review

Last month I was arrested and charged with high tier breath test and OMVI. You were able to get the high tier charge dismissed. The judge suspended $350 of my fine and gave me 2 years non reporting probation, suspended 177 of the 180 days jail time in lieu of a 3 day intervention program. I am very happy with the unlimited driving privileges with the use of an interlock device you were able to get me during my 3 year suspension.

Common DUI Defenses

After a DUI arrest, you may assume that there is no way to avoid a conviction. Maybe your performance on the field sobriety tests was less than desirable or the breath test result was over the legal limit. And now you’re questioning if you can even avoid a conviction for DUI. I urge you to not make assumptions because there are strategic defenses available that may be applicable in your case.

Those defenses include but are not limited to:

  • No probable cause to stop or to arrest;
  • Non-substantial compliance with the National Highway Traffic Association Manual on any administered field sobriety tests;
  • Problems with the breath test as it relates to the Ohio Administrative Code and the Ohio Department of Health.

No stone will be left unturned as we develop a strategy to defend your case

First Step – Obtain Evidence

Second Step – Provide Copies

Third Step – Analyze Case

We will obtain all of the evidence against you by filing a motion for discovery and perform our own independent investigation of the facts.

Once we have the evidence you will be provided copies of everything – at no charge to you. Only after the evidence is gathered is it possible to evaluate your case.

We will analyze and discuss your options with you and advise you accordingly. After all, this is your case and we believe you have the right to be informed, heard, and to be an active participant in the decision making process.
