As a DUI defense attorney I defend clients charged with DUI related offenses all across the State of Ohio. One of the courts that I routinely practice in is Ravenna Municipal Court. This court has two judges, Kent the other court in Portage County has one. Each of these judges is assigned a specific prosecutor to handle DUI cases – it is important that you defend yourself with an attorney that knows how to attack a DUI arrest because these prosecutors are typically ordered by their superiors to not offer significant reductions on these types of cases.
In Ravenna and Kent you are going to be required to be present for your arraignment, or your first hearing, however, most of the time I – or one of my attorneys – can conduct your first hearing in chambers without you needing to actually go before the court. One of the things we always try to obtain for our clients is the following: (1) immediate ability to drive restored, (2) limited driving privileges, (3) reduced bond, and (4) the setting of meaningful court dates.
If you are serious about defending yourself and putting this behind you call us at (330) 752-6706. The call is confidential and without any obligation. Ask to speak to me, Joe Patituce, a Ravenna DUI Attorney. I promise that my team and I will treat you with the respect and dignity that you deserve.
