Honest DUI Defense Attorneys
Being stopped, arrested, and charged with drinking and driving can be a confusing experience. For many people, it is their first involvement with the legal system, and many people assume there is no way to fight a drunk driving charge. This is not true.
The attorney you select to handle your DUI case is very important. Our lawyers understand how to evaluate the evidence in drunk driving cases:
Was the DatamaSTER (breathalyzer) administered correctly and properly certified?
What were the circumstances surrounding the arrest?
Was blood alcohol content (BAC) accurately tested?
These and any number of questions should be asked in a drunk driving defense case. We know when to fight a charge and when to try to minimize the consequences of a plea or conviction.
