Building The Strongest Possible Defense
Many people mistakenly assume that if they fail a roadside sobriety test or if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured as being over the legal limit, they will be automatically found guilty of DUI. The fact is roadside sobriety tests are subjective and are weighted toward law enforcement. A Breathalyzer machine may have not been calibrated properly, skewing the results. The police may not have even had sufficient probable cause to stop you in the first place, which means any evidence stemming from the stop is inadmissible.
I will take the time to thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding your criminal arrest, looking for holes to poke in the prosecution’s case. If getting your charges dismissed is not possible, we can discuss the potential for a less serious charge. I prepare every case as if it is going to trial, and we can take your case to a jury if that is what is in your best interest. I will ensure that your rights remain protected every step of the way.
