Joe Suhre, Principal
Joe Suhre is the owner and principal of Suhre & Associates, LLC. Joe has dedicated his practice to the defense of OVI cases. Virtually his entire caseload consists of OVI/DUI related cases.

Joe has over 11 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 client’s 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 an 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 2006, Cincy Business magazine named Joe a leading lawyer in the field of DUI/OVI defense. Cincy Business honored him with the award again in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Joe has also been named as a Rising Star Super Lawyer in the Columbus Monthly magazine for 2011 in the field of DUI/OVI defense.

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 on the other side of the table. And, do the very best job that you can. This methodology used by Joe is also employed by all of the Suhre & Associates attorneys. It is the culture of the firm and a driving force behind the firm’s success.

Another factor in Suhre & Associates success is the people. Whether it is a legal secretary, paralegal, administrative assistant, or an attorney – everyone at the firm is dedicated to performing at 100% of their ability, treating each client with dignity, courtesy, and respect. The mutual respect the firm shares with its clients is a contributing factor to the successful outcome of our cases.

Joe and the attorneys built Suhre & Associates, LLC as an aggressive law firm. Part of the firm’s culture is to explore all defense-options. Suhre & Associates’ success in handling Columbus DUI cases comes from uncompromising principles directed at providing thorough investigation of the facts, an analysis of all legal options, formulating a defense plan, and aggressively and effectively executing that plan.

Joe is licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio & Kentucky.

DUI Case

A Relieved Client

“Mr. Dan Carman provided me legal representation after the sudden death of my longtime friend and legal counsel, Gatewood Galbriath. Mr. Carman took my case, and followed in the steps of Gatewood. His knowledge of the law is exceptional. I have been through multi-million dollar legal cases, with some of the foremost attorneys in the U.S., and Mr. Carman could hold his on with the best. I highly recommend him to anyone with a legal problem, no matter how large or small.”

DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Dan knew how he would represent me as soon as I contacted him with my case. I was very fortunate to have found Dan…he knew exactly what he was going to do to handle my situation. Mr. Carman is very distinguished in his law practice and was able to minimize my court appearances, upon dismissal of my charges he also followed through with all other necessary documentation to relinquish my record. With my experience, Mr. Carman will do what is necessary to insure his clients success and I would certainly recommend Dan ‘the man’ Carman.”
