DUI Defense Strategies
Our drunk driving defense lawyers will scrutinize every aspect of the state’s case against you, including:
- The stop: Police cannot stop you based on a hunch or a guess. If they pull you over for no valid reason, evidence gained from the stop may be deemed inadmissible in court.
- The breath test: Breathalyzer test results often play a key role in a DUI case. These machines must be properly maintained, calibrated and operated by qualified personnel. If not, they may be giving a faulty reading.
- The field sobriety test: These tests are very subjective and under the right circumstances, a perfectly sober person can fail them. These tests often fail to take into account health conditions, obesity and other factors that can make it difficult to pass.
Every case has unique factors. We will craft a defense strategy based on the particulars of your case to give you the best possible chance of putting this criminal charge behind you.
