DUI Representation

In addition to representation for criminal offenses such as violent crimes and internet crimes, the firm also can provide legal counsel for individuals who have received a charge of driving under the influence. Many people are unaware that DUI is in fact a criminal offense. For a basic first offense DUI, the state considers the crime a misdemeanor. Driving while intoxicated can also be considered a felony offense if an accident or death was involved or if the alleged offender has had prior convictions of DUI. An attorney at the firm can assist you throughout the hearing and trial process. There are certain strategies that one can use to defend against a DUI conviction. Depending on your circumstance the firm may decide to pursue one of the following defense strategies.

  1. The police may not have had probable cause to pull you over. In order for an officer to make an arrest, he or she has to have “probable cause” or that the evidence must strongly point toward the fact that you had been drinking or driving. Without probable cause an arrest may not hold up in court.
  2. The field sobriety tests were not given properly. There are many different ways for the field sobriety tests to go wrong. First, the tests administered may not have been standardized. Non-standardized tests have much higher error rates. The individual also given the tests may not have passed due to factors like age, health, environmental conditions, and footwear.
  3. Your blood alcohol level (BAC) is rising. This is a phenomenon that happens when you have been drinking. It takes about an hour for the alcohol to completely absorb in the blood stream. An hour after you drink your BAC is at the highest level. If you had a drink prior to driving your BAC may have been at the legal limit when you drove. But when the officer pulls you over and takes you into the station for a blood or breath test, your BAC may have risen due to the time lapse.
