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.
