Defend your rights if you’re accused of a DUI

| Nov 20, 2020 | drunk driving

A DUI can leave you with a criminal record that impacts your job, family, social circle and reputation, which is the last thing anyone wants to see. The good news is that being able to attend the DMV hearing and having your attorney prepared to defend you is a step in the right direction.

A DMV hearing is one place where you’ll be able to defend your rights. The Department of Motor Vehicles holds this hearing, and your attorney will use it as a way of discovering more about your care. They will lock in witness statements and focus on establishing which evidence the state has against you, if any.

How can an attorney fight DUI charges?

Attorneys fight DUI charges in a few ways, but one of the first things that they’ll look at is the field sobriety testing that was performed. These tests are not foolproof. Additionally, the officer must have had good reason to ask you to perform these tests.

Your attorney can challenge the results of those tests as well as the equipment used, procedures followed and the actual breath, blood and urine tests that were taken.  Breathalyzer inaccuracies due to a lack of calibration could be possible, for example, which is one thing your attorney will look for.

If you are stopped and subsequently arrested for a DUI, it’s worth fighting those charges. Our website has more information on the steps you can take next so that you have the best chance of minimizing the penalties or having the case against you dropped completely. This is your life, and you should fight to protect your rights.
