Law enforcement can stop a vehicle if they suspect a driver is violating a traffic law, and they can also stop a vehicle if they suspect a driver is driving under the influence. During the stop, officers are able to collect evidence to give them reasonable suspicion to take the driver into custody and charge him with a DUI. It is important to consult with an attorney who is well versed in drunk driving laws.
I have a deep understanding of evidence collected during a field sobriety test or a blood or breath test used to determine blood alcohol concentration. If evidence was unlawfully collected or if the tests were not conducted properly, that evidence could be suppressed and the charges may be reduced or all together dismissed.
If it was a good arrest, and the evidence was good, I can walk a defendant through what to expect in the DUI process, including upcoming court dates and potential sentencing.
