Need a DUI attorney or know someone who does? Then look no further than one of Ohio’s brightest and aggressive attorneys, Greg Gentile. Greg specializes in OVI and drug-related criminal defense matters. He has been working with clients in this arena for over 12 years and continues to make a name for himself in Northeast Ohio.
I am fascinated by Greg’s professional experiences and found our conversation to be insightful and informative. There are many scenarios one may be faced with when being pulled over, especially after having consumed alcohol. How you handle yourself in those situations may be the difference between a severe punishment or a mere slap-on-the-wrist. What I learned from Greg is that each situation is different and that you must use your best judgment to not incriminate yourself under the circumstances. If in doubt, always remember that the only thing you need to provide is your name/identity and also must remove yourself from your vehicle if the officer demands that you do. Everything else from there on out allows you to practice your fifth amendment right and simply remain silent to avoid self-incrimination.
