A DUI / drunk driving defense lawyer can help you navigate the complex legal system and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.
DUI defense lawyers are attorneys who specialize in representing clients who have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. Their primary role is to defend their clients against these charges and work towards minimizing the potential consequences of a DUI conviction.
We will help you analyze your case and carefully review all the details of your case, including police reports, witness statements, and any evidence obtained during your DUI arrest. We will then use this information to help you determine the best course of action, explain the potential consequences of a DUI conviction, and offer guidance on how to proceed. In some cases we may challenge the validity of any evidence obtained during the arrest, such as the results of a breathalyzer test or field sobriety test, in order to weaken the prosecution’s case. We may also seek alternative sentencing in some cases where a conviction is likely such as a diversion program or community service.
