We Know How To Challenge The Evidence Against You
Too often, people are tempted to simply plead guilty to a drunk driving charge in an effort to move forward with their lives. In many cases, people’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) will be measured as being over the legal limit, giving them the impression that they have no choice but to plead guilty. However, a guilty plea will result in a criminal record that will follow you for life, and may have a negative impact on your ability to find employment or housing, and can damage your representation.
You are innocent until proven guilty and you have rights. We are here to help defend you and your rights. Just because you may have failed the Breathalyzer test does not mean that you are automatically guilty. BAC readings are prone to all types of errors, from human error on the part of the person administering the test to improperly calibrated machines. In some cases, the police may not even have had probable cause to make a traffic stop in the first place, making any evidence against you inadmissible. We will explore every available avenue to help you build a solid defense.
