Working to Restore Your Ohio Driving Privileges

Handling License Suspensions in Central Ohio
Attorney Douglas Riddell knows how to help clients navigate through the Ohio criminal justice system, and he understands the administrative nuances within the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). His comprehensive background includes representing commercial drivers and other motorists with suspended licenses for a variety of offenses, including:
- Suspension by a judge
- Insurance suspension (ranging from a 90 day to a 2 year suspension)
- Accumulating 12 Points on your driving record (carries a maximum 180 day suspension)
- Security suspension (resulting from property damages exceeding $400 and/or a personal injury claim filed by a State Crash Report)
- Random selection suspension

- Refusing a Breathalyzer or chemical test when pulled over for drunk driving
- Driving under suspension

Further, once a motorist regains their driving privileges, they are left with extremely high insurance rates.
