DUI Defense Over 30 Years of Experience Protecting Your Future

DUI Attorney in Dayton, OH

Work with Our Hard-Hitting DUI Lawyers

In the state of Ohio, driving a vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or higher could lead to a DUI or OVI conviction. For some individuals, that is just a few drinks in the matter of a few hours.

Many individuals believe that being accused of DUI isn’t that serious of a crime, which is why many attempts to defend themselves without legal representation. However, this nonchalance could easily lead to lamentable consequences. Prosecutors don’t have a reputation for being lenient.

If you are facing DUI or OVI charges, our team at L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates, LLC is here to help protect your rights. These kinds of charges can lead to serious and harsh penalties for accused drivers. Our firm can tenaciously defend you from the charges you face, whether you live in Dayton or Cincinnati.

Contact our firm to discuss your charges. Our DUI attorneys proudly serve Hamilton, Brown, Allen, Clermont, Warren, Montgomery, and Butler counties.
