A person may be charged with a DUI if they are impaired by alcohol or drugs, or have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or greater. Potential penalties include jail time, the loss of your driver’s license, increased insurance premiums, and steep fines. The possible consequences are even greater if you have past DUI convictions.
With so much at stake, these charges need to be taken seriously. Defenses are available, even if your BAC was measured as being over the legal limit to drive. Machines are prone to both mechanical and human error. The police may not have even had the right to make a traffic stop in the first place. You can rest assured that we will challenge the evidence against you at every turn while fighting to protect your freedom and your driving privileges.
Our attorney is certified by the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration (NHSTA) in the administration of standardized field sobriety tests.
