Common DWI/DUI Defenses

As soon as our firm accepts your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your DWI charge to develop an effective defense, whether this is your first or multiple DWI charge. Often, the defense will be determined if the charge involved:

  • Illegal search and seizure: Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a traffic stop to ultimately prove invalid. If the officer has no probable cause, he or she cannot stop your vehicle. Additionally, if the search violates your rights under the Fourth Amendment, any evidence gained through the search is considered inadmissible.
  • Faulty or inaccurate breath test results: Often, breath test results can be called into question by asking training or procedural questions. Was the officer properly trained on the operation of the machine? Was the machine cleaned, stored and calibrated properly between uses? Were there elements present (paint fumes, vomit, medication) that influenced the results?

Depending on the factors specific to your DWI/DUI charge, our attorneys will develop a strong defense that limits your exposure to devastating penalties such as jail time or the loss of driving privileges. When you need a knowledgeable defense lawyer on your side, do not hesitate to schedule a consultation at our firm.
