Meadows Law Firm takes an aggressive approach to OVI defense. Over the last 20 years, Jeff Meadows has handled over 2000 OVI/DUI cases. In 2017 alone, Jeff Meadows received NOT GUILTY verdicts in 16/20 cases fought. Let us fight for YOU!

The Meadows Law Firm is a small law firm located in West Chester, Ohio (Union Centre area), just north of I-275. We have two attorneys and our practice areas include OVI/DUI defense, criminal defense, domestic relations (divorce, custody, visitation & support), personal injury and school law.

Jeff Meadows has been a leader in Ohio OVI defense going on 20 years. He has handled over 2000 OVI cases, done scores of jury trials and bench trials, hosted and/or lectured at over 30 continuing legal education seminars on OVI issues (he teaches other lawyers about OVI defense).

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

When it comes to OVI defense, Jeff Meadows fortuitously fell into this area of law. With a love for science and a knack for trial work, Jeff's knowledge, skill set and reputation took root almost immediately. Immersing himself in hands-on training all over the country and reading every scientific journal article he could find, Jeff was quickly propelled to the top of the list of "who's who" in Ohio OVI defense.

Jeff has taken the same course officers take for certification in field sobriety testing, has done multi-day training at one of the manufacturers of breath test devices, has spent over 80 hours learning theory and operation of gas chromatographs (the instrument used for blood and urine testing as well as testing of actual alleged drug material) including preparing and running of actual samples. In addition, Jeff has attended hundreds of hours of continuing legal education courses focused on OVI/DUI defense.

As a recognized leader in Ohio OVI Defense, Jeff is a regular presenter at the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer's annual Advanced OVI Defense seminar, where he is one of the faculty members who teach other lawyers some of the techniques he uses to successfully challenge OVI cases.

One of the other factors that make OVI defense appeal to Jeff is the fact that good people get charged with OVI and they are not always guilty. OVI is unique in that one section of the Ohio law (4511.19 (A)(1)(a)) is based entirely on the officer's opinion that the individual is impaired. An opinion usually formed in a matter of minutes, on the side of the road with traffic whizzing by, while you are doing roadside tests that have nothing to do with driving and tests which you are not given a chance to practice or told what you're being graded on. Jeff has mastered courtroom and trial skills in these types of cases as a result of doing more trials year in and year out than anyone he knows (at least here in Ohio).

In cases where there is a blood, breath or urine test result, again, the science behind this testing has been a huge appeal. Jeff owns two of the three breath testing instruments approved for use in Ohio OVI cases and has done scores of hours of training on GCMS instruments. As a result of his training in these areas, Jeff is frequently called on by other attorneys to assist them with interpreting and attacking crime lab results.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Over the past 20 years, Jeff Meadows has represented over 2000 clients charged with OVI. To Jeff's knowledge, there is no other Ohio attorney who has taken as many OVI cases to trial (both jury trial and bench trial) as him. While Jeff doesn't pretend to win all of his trials, he does win most.

The commitment to knowledge, desire and effort sets the attorneys at Meadows Law firm above the rest and this has been recognized by Mr. Meadows' peers as he has been selected as an Ohio Super Lawyer every year since 2012 and has twice been selected as a Top 50 lawyer in Cincinnati and a Top 100 lawyer in the whole state of Ohio (as nominated by his peers). No other OVI defense lawyer has these same recognitions.

Jeffrey C. Meadows, Attorney At Law

Jeff Meadows grew up in the Mason & West Chester area. After a very robust social experience at Miami University, Jeff later graduated from the University of Cincinnati with honors in Philosophy.

For law school, Jeff moved to Miami, FL and attended the University of Miami School of Law while working full-time for American Airlines and part-time for Lexis-Nexis. Upon completion of school, Jeff began his practice here in the Cincinnati area and then began working for a small firm in West Chester doing criminal defense.

Jeff very quickly took to OVI defense and became one of the most recognized names in Ohio DUI circles as Jeff was frequently invited to speak at legal education seminars where he would share with other lawyers, his knowledge and tactics on OVI defense.

Throughout his 20 year career, Meadows has represented over 2000 people charged with OVI/DUI throughout the following counties: Hamilton County, Butler County, Warren County, Clermont County, Brown County, Adams County, Highland County, Athens County, Lawrence County, Delaware County, Greene County, Fayette County, Clinton County, Montgomery County, Preble County, and Allen County.

It is also believed that there is no other attorney in Ohio who has more OVI trials under their belt than Jeff. And while he doesn't win them all, he does win most. Jeff is not afraid of any fact pattern and he has received NOT GUILTY verdicts on a number of breath test cases, including one with a test result of 0.244.

In his free time, Jeff loves to SCUBA dive and more specifically, he loves diving with big animals. Jeff has dived with bull sharks, lemon sharks, black tip sharks, whale sharks and salt water crocodiles.
