Joe Suhre is the owner and principal of Suhre & Associates. Joe has dedicated his practice to the defense of OVI cases. Virtually his entire caseload consists of OVI/DUI related cases. Joe has over 20 years of OVI defense experience and 5 years’ experience as a police officer. He has handled hundreds of DUI cases before dozens of judges. Because of this, Joe is uniquely qualified to defend his clients against DUI charges.
Joe began his legal career on the “other side of the fence” as a police officer. His experience and training as a police officer gives Joe a perspective not held by many other attorneys. When presented with a DUI charge, the first place Joe looks is to the actions of the police officer. He uses his knowledge of police practices and training standards to uncover missteps made by the arresting officer.
In 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, Joe was named a Rising Star Super Lawyer in Cincinnati magazine in the field of DUI/OVI defense. And in 2016-2019 was named a Super Lawyer in the field of DUI/OVI defense.
Joe has also been named a leading lawyer in the field of DUI/OVI defense by Cincy Business magazine every year since 2006 – one of the longest consecutive runs for this honor.
Joe’s method for handling cases is simple and straightforward: treat the client the same way the attorney would want to be treated if the attorney were the client, and do the very best job that you can. Joe is licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio, Kentucky, and the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. He is a graduate of Xavier University and Cincinnati College of Law.
Additionally, Joe will now be the co-author of Kentucky Driving Under the Influence Law with Wilbur Zevely, the only complete analysis of Kentucky's DUI law.
Rob Healey has defended DUI, OVI, and criminal cases in just about every court in Southwest Ohio since 2008. He practices law in state and federal court in Ohio.

He has testified as an expert witness in the area of Ohio OVI law for a Dayton Police Officer at a union arbitration hearing. He is rated by Super Lawyers.

Nathan Miller. Over the last 15 years, Mr. Miller has appeared on behalf of clients in over half of Kentucky’s 120 counties. The decision to not limit his practice to one geographical area has given him a unique perspective and appreciation for the various local nuances that comprise the Commonwealth’s criminal justice system. Born and raised in eastern Kentucky, he received his undergraduate degree in biology/chemistry at Georgetown College and attended law school at the University of Louisville. Before working as a public defender in Pineville and Morehead, he was a staff attorney at the Transportation Cabinet’s Department of Highways for three years. He spent another three years on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. crafting controlled substance and DUI legislation at the local, state and federal levels.
