Cleveland DUI Lawyer


While it can be easy to lose track of the number of alcoholic drinks you've had when you are having fun, it may be impossible to forget a DUI/OVI conviction on your record. If you have been arrested on drunk driving charges, it's time to consult Richard A. Pignatiello.

Offering Skillful And Vigorous Legal Defense When You Need It Most

When you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) or operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OVI), the legal consequences can be severe. For more than three decades, our founder and managing lawyer Richard A. Pignatiello has competently represented clients throughout Cuyahoga and Medina counties facing first offenses and repetitive charges.

Depending on your charges, your penalties could include jail time, driver's license suspension, expensive fines, increased insurance rates, etc. In Ohio, individuals facing their first DUI charges may be placed in a first offender program to avoid jail time that involves AA meetings and other rehabilitation classes.

When you consult with us, our Seven Hills DUI attorney will meet privately with you to learn about your situation and explain your legal rights and options to you. Richard A. Pignatiello will begin building a compelling and resilient case by:

  • Investigating your arrest and collecting crucial information, including police reports, breath and blood test results, police surveillance, witness testimony, etc.
  • Challenging sobriety test and chemical test administration, breath test machines and maintenance, breath and blood test results, and other possible procedural discrepancies to ensure no violation of rights have occurred. If there were mistakes or omissions by law enforcement handling your charges, we may have the opportunity to file a motion to suppress evidence, ultimately increasing your chances of having your charges reduced or dropped.
  • Meeting with the prosecuting attorney to learn about the evidence that will be used against you and possibly negotiate a lesser charge.

Richard A. Pignatiello understands the challenges you are up against, and is fully prepared to help you. We are determined to help our clients protect their driving privileges and, in some cases, obtain rehabilitation or treatment that will benefit them the most.
