Defense options in drunk driving cases are numerous

In our previous blog post, we discussed the fact that Breathalyzers must be calibrated in order to produce accurate results. If the person who is using the device doesn't calibrate it properly, the results could read much higher or lower than the sample given. We know that you might have some questions about how to determine if the device is calibrated. We can help you explore whether this is a possible defense strategy you might opt to use in your case.

This is only of the possible strategies that you can potentially use for your defense. We can discuss other possible tactics with you so that you are prepared for what we might need to cover while defending your case. We usually work on this determination by looking into the circumstances surrounding your case, which start at the time of your arrest.

Even if you know that you were driving while intoxicated, you still have options that you can consider for a defense. The aim of your defense might change from being found not guilty to just minimizing the penalties that you will face. These penalties can include a host of adverse consequences, including time in jail, fines, mandatory substance abuse education programs and community service.

We don't expect that our clients will be well-versed in Breathalyzers and blood tests to determine blood-alcohol concentration. This is why it is important to consult with those with a high degree of familiarity with these matters. If necessary, we can help you find experts who might be able to testify on your behalf in your case.
