Challenging DUI Evidence

Strategy and Preparation are the Keys to DUI Defense

After a drinking and driving arrest, a failed breathalyzer or blood test, and a few days to think about it — many people accept as fact, the mistaken idea that a DUI conviction is a foregone conclusion. Unfortunately for them, nothing could be further from the truth.

Talk to a lawyer before talking yourself into trouble.

Not only does a DUI carry serious penalties under the law, it can affect your family relationships and employment opportunities. Those potential consequences make it imperative that you contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.

There are many ways to defend DUI charges. First, it must be determined whether the officers had legitimate probable cause to pull you over in your car in the first place. Beyond that, the police might have used improper arrest procedures or engaged in sloppy evidence handling after the arrest. It´s also possible that the blood-alcohol content (BAC) test results that came back were wrong because the breathalyzer machine was not maintained or calibrated correctly or because the breathalyzer or blood test was not correctly administered.

Our firm will examine and evaluate every aspect of your DUI arrest that can possibly be challenged and all evidence that could potentially be suppressed. Our lawyers will also meet directly with the prosecutor on your case at the earliest possible opportunity to discuss ways to minimize your penalties or to reduce the impact of a conviction.
