You Deserve Effective DUI Defense Strategies

Nobody is perfect—everyone makes mistakes. This is true for citizens, police, and attorneys alike. During criminal proceedings, the prosecutor’s goal is to get the court to focus on any mistakes you made which led to the charges at hand. However, law enforcement and prosecutors also make mistakes.

Our attorneys will look for any mitigating factors about your situation and any mistakes that the government may have made, such as:

  • Wrongfully Obtained Evidence: When law enforcement gathers evidence using methods that violated your constitutional rights, that evidence is inadmissible in your trial.
  • Improper Sobriety Testing: Law enforcement is required to follow specific procedures when testing your sobriety. Failure to do so could invalidate the results of field sobriety tests at trial.
  • Defects with Breathalyzer Testing: The results of your breathalyzer can be thrown out if the police failed to follow proper inspection, calibration, and maintenance protocols for their breathalyzer machine.
  • Medical Conditions Affecting Test Results: Some medical conditions can interfere with the accuracy of a breathalyzer test or blood test. Also, some people might have health conditions that prevent them from drinking.
