Whether it is your first DUI arrest or you have been arrested for drunk driving before, my priority is to get the best possible outcome in your case. I begin by investigating all aspects of your arrest, focusing on key aspects that can become part of a successful defense strategy, including:
- Did the officer have probable cause to stop you and continue the investigation?
- Were the field sobriety tests properly conducted?
- Are the results of the test for blood alcohol content (BAC) accurate?
Even if the state’s evidence is strong, you may still have legal options, especially if this is a first-time offense. I often can negotiate a plea agreement that reduces or dismisses a DWI charge in exchange for your completion of an alcohol and drug education diversion program.
