Defending Against a Felony DUI Charge
When defending against a repeat drunk driving charge, thorough investigation of all of the facts is critical. Mr. Weiss examines every detail of the case, looking for a means to obtain a dismissal of the charge, reduction to a non-alcohol driving offense or not-guilty verdict.
These typically include such factors as:
- The legality of the stop — did the police have probable cause to stop your vehicle?
- Reasonable suspicion — did the police really have reason to believe that you were under the influence?
- Admissibility of breath, blood or urine test results
DUI cases can present complicated issues involving the amount of alcohol consumed, the time period over which it was consumed and when you were tested for blood alcohol content. There may even be biological factors that could affect the test results, including your medical condition, medications and other issues.
In your case, criminal defense attorney Steve Weiss will examine every possible defense issue, seeking a means to obtain a good result for you.
