Questioning The Prosecutors’ Evidence
We are experienced criminal defense attorneys. We have handled hundreds of cases and understand the strict procedural steps law enforcement must follow when making DUI arrests. Part of our success stems from questioning the credibility of the evidence obtained against clients and examining the actions of police officers to determine if they violated our clients’ constitutional rights.
Our DUI defense attorneys know how to question the validity of field sobriety tests. We carefully review evidence to determine if technical problems due to improper calibration or lack of maintenance occurred with the Breathalyzer. We examine whether the police officer was properly trained to administer the Breathalyzer test. If the blood alcohol content (BAC) results are questionable, we fight to have the case dismissed.
Protecting Clients From Improper Traffic Stops
Police officers naturally target downtown areas at bar closing times to pull drivers over for drunk driving. Before making a DUI arrest, law enforcement must have a legitimate reason for a traffic stop, such as:
- Reckless driving
- Driving unusually slow
- Swerving between lanes
- Speeding at sharp corners
Our lawyers will fight to have your case dismissed if police officers made an illegal traffic stop without adequate legal justification.
