Practice Areas







Being charged with an OVI can be a scary time for anyone. Even a first OVI offense in Ohio can be punishable by 6 months in jail, a $1075.00 fine and a year license suspension. Anyone charged with an OVI should discuss the matter with an Attorney as soon as possible. Many attorneys will offer free consultations, so do not be afraid to discuss issues with multiple attorneys until you find one you are comfortable with.


Mark Raines will fight for each and every client to try to achieve what they want out of their case. Every case and client is different, and each client should know their specific interests are being represented. An OVI is a serious charge with serious potential consequences, but an OVI charge can be beaten when a defendant and their attorney have a willingness to litigate. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty, and there are ways to attack any evidence the prosecution seeks to use against you (see FAQ). Mark Raines will work with each client to develop a strong case strategy tailored to the specifics of that case.


While the seriousness of an OVI conviction means that defendants should strongly consider fighting an OVI charge, Mr. Raines understands that each client's circumstances are different, and sometimes a plea may be warranted. Mr. Raines will work with each client to achieve the best plea possible when that is the desire of the client. Mr. Raines understands the financial burden an OVI can place on a client and is focused on providing the client with reasonable rates based on the amount of work done.
