We Will Defend Your Rights
OVI stands for
operating a vehicle while impaired. It is also commonly referred to as DUI, DWI, or OMVI. If you have OVI charges brought against you, it is in your best interest to seek representation. An experienced OVI / DUI defense attorney can help you avoid making legal mistakes that may make the situation worse.
