DUI and DWI Cases

Some of the most difficult cases in Criminal Defense practice is Drunk Driving Cases or DUI. People are arrested for drunk driving every day, but no one ever thinks it will happen to them. Being arrested for DUI is scary, stressful and intimidating and that you may feel lost as a result. Most drunk driving defendants have never been arrested before therefore desire immediate answers to the situation they are facing. Drunk driving cases are very complex cases and they are not easy to defend and if your rights are not protected a conviction against you can result in the loss of your reputation, loss of employment, costly fines, suspension of driver's license, cancellation of your auto insurance and/or loss of your liberty with jail time. You certainly have a lot to lose if you have been charged with DUI. However, there are several ways to defend these cases after spending time to prep and try these cases by understanding our client mentally and physically, the kind of testing that was done against our client, who conducted the testing, what were the conditions surrounding the testing, was it done at a checkpoint and the technical information of the testing equipment used to come to the conclusion that our client was intoxicated and over the legal limits.
