Let us give you relief in your case and allow you to keep your license, stay out of jail and enjoy a brighter future.
Protecting your rights after drunk driving charges
The most effective means of defending against DUI charges is to challenge the evidence gathered by law enforcement. As in any criminal case, police officers must follow a certain protocol when making an arrest and issuing charges. When they do not follow this protocol, any evidence they collect is invalid. As your criminal defense law firm, we are trained to look out for these protocol breaches, which include:
- Improper administration of Breathalyzer® tests. All officers must have the appropriate certification to administer a Breathalyzer test. Without that certification, any evidence they collect is ineligible for use. In addition, Breathalyzer tests occasionally produce inaccurate evidence due to malfunctioning equipment or other similar reasons. We analyze the state of the Breathalyzer itself and how the officer used it in their investigation.
- Improper administration of field sobriety tests. Only a few field sobriety tests are scientifically proven to reflect a person’s blood alcohol content (BAC). If the officer uses unapproved tests or improperly administers the approved tests, any evidence collected is ineligible for use in court.
- Insufficient or subjective evidence. Officers look for certain behaviors when pulling people over on suspicion of DUI. These behaviors could include driving slower than usual, swerving in between lanes, sudden stops and starts and more. However, these behaviors could have other explanations besides drunk driving, or may not have even been present at all. Our firm challenges evidence put forth by the officers on the basis of subjectivity or lack of proof.
