For many people, facing a DUI charge may be the most serious brush with the law they have ever had. Protecting their driver’s licenses and avoiding jail are their top priorities. They may be confused and unsure about what they can and should do. They may feel that there is no way they can overcome their charges when the state has evidence such as an illegal BAC.
Securing the representation of an attorney who understands how to construct a strong defense against DUI charges is the smartest choice you can make.
There are many highly effective strategies to defend against DUI charges, including:
- Questioning if there was probable cause for the original traffic stop
- Questioning if the Breathalyzer was functioning properly
- Questioning if the officer was properly trained in operating the Breathalyzer
Other steps that can be taken can include enrolling in an Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP) before you go to court. Taking responsibility for your actions is usually well-received by the court.
