Representing Defendants in DUI, Traffic Tickets and Misdemeanor and Felony Charges

All too often, people who are charged with DUI aren't actually legally intoxicated are the most common method of determining intoxication, and the findings of these tests are subjective. The charging law officer may have misinterpreted your results, which may have led to a wrongful accusation of driving under the influence. Don't fall victim to a wrongful charge; with the proper representation, you can fight your DUI charge and reclaim your innocence. There are a number of defenses that can be used, including:

  • Unreliable findings
  • Officer movement or inattention
  • Physical impairment, such as a limp or slurred speech that is the result of an illness
  • Unclear instructions given during the sobriety test
  • Unfavorable environmental conditions that may have impacted the findings of the sobriety test, including inclement weather or bad lighting

If you have been wrongfully charged of a DUI, our law firm represent your case and can help you have your charges dropped. Contact us today to learn more about your rights.
