Possible DWI Defenses
While law enforcement and prosecutors may insist that you have no chance of obtaining reduced or dropped charges, our firm is confident in our ability to provide you with effective representation for your needs. There are many different reasons why the charges against you could be called into question.
- No probable cause to pull you over
- Improperly conducted field sobriety tests
- Incorrect or inconclusive chemical tests
In any of these situations, it is important to get help from someone who knows the laws and how they can help you. Our firm maintains strong, effective relationships with many legal, medical, and chemical experts throughout the community to help build a strong case in your favor.
Reasonable Suspicion Is Mandatory
Some people think police officers can pull people over for any reason, and that group includes some police officers. However, it is important that they pull you over for a legitimate reason if they are to attempt a DWI arrest. Otherwise, the court may dismiss the charges.
Such reasons might include:
- Crossing the centerline
- Driving too slowly
- Other activities that would cause a reasonable officer to believe that the law has been violated
Even still, it may be possible that the arresting officer acted under a kind of prejudice.
Our firm can help you determine whether you may have been arrested due to:
- Your ethnicity
- Driving an older or beat-up car
- Having a “rough” appearance
Field Sobriety Tests
You may have been subjected to a field sobriety test that you failed. While you may feel this is damning to your situation, the truth is many of these tests are ridden with methodological errors that can be highlighted to protect your innocence.
Our firm has built a reputation for giving our clients effective representation when law enforcement insists they are guilty. If your case goes to trial, we are prepared to show the court any mistakes made during your arrest.
