DUID Attorneys: High-Quality Defense

We know the types of questions that will be asked in any given DUID case. For example, did the blood and / or urine test show that drugs were present in the defendant's system? How much drugs were present? Were the defendant's faculties impaired during the field sobriety test? With over two decades of legal experience, we are well-versed in how to challenge these questions and present evidence that will put your case in the best light possible.

For example, we may argue the following:

  • The drug or field sobriety test was not properly administered;
  • The blood / urine sample was not stored or transferred properly;
  • The results were skewed from outside factors; and
  • Evidence was gained during unlawful search and seizure.

We can also work tirelessly to ensure that your rights were not violated during the arrest process. For example, we can ask whether or not there was proper evidence and reasonable cause to complete the traffic stop. If there wasn't, we may ask to have the charges dismissed. One thing, however, is certain: you can trust in our firm. We know that cases involving drugs and DUI can be complex, but they do not need to affect your future. We have years of experience and can work to ensure that your rights are not violated.

It doesn’t matter if this is your first offense or your third, you can count on our firm to protect your legal rights. Often, our defense starts with recounting with you how the police officer came to stop you in the first place and how he or she came to believe you may be under the influence of alcohol. If the stop was illegal, or the tests were improperly administered, we may be able to argue for the dismissal of that evidence in court, helping your chances of a dropped charge.
