DUI Defense You Can Count On


At the law office of Ivy, Ratcliff & Chasteen, P.C., we have fought for the rights of people in Oklahoma since 1949, when Red Ivy opened up our practice. David Ratliff joined the firm in 1996 and April Chasteen came onboard in 1998. They both have over 20 years of experience.

We place a premium on communication with our clients. Our attorneys will keep you informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options moving forward. We will always be straightforward and honest with you, making certain you have realistic expectations about your likelihood of success. We understand your concerns about the cost of legal counsel, and work hard to provide a high level of service at reasonable and affordable rates.

Do Not Underestimate DUI Charges

A first offense DUI conviction may seem minor at first, but even a first conviction comes with serious long-term consequences. You are almost certain to lose your license and major fines and time behind bars are still on the table for first offenders. We fight to keep your record as clean as possible by exploring every option to overcome your charges.

Our Criminal Defense Practice

Our legal team works hard to defend our clients from all types of criminal charges. We provide aggressive counsel to individuals facing felony and misdemeanor charges including:

  • Drug possession – We help people facing charges for possessing controlled substances such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, heroin and prescription drugs.
  • Assault and battery – We put our experience, skill and knowledge of the law to work help minimize penalties and avoid jail time if at all possible.
  • Passing bad or bogus checks – We help people accused of writing bad checks avoid the most severe penalties by petitioning for enrollment in Oklahoma’s Bogus Check Restitution Program and other means.
  • Burglary – Whether you were charged with burglary in the first degree or burglary in the second degree, we work hard to get the charges reduced or dismissed altogether.

Because of our considerable experience, we can quickly assess your case and determine whether your interests will best be served by seeking a plea agreement, or by fighting for your rights at trial. When necessary, we will use private investigators and other professionals to prepare and present the strongest case for your defense.
