DUI Defenses

DUI defenses are far more numerous than you may think, and they are often highly effective. Unfortunately, many defendants in driving under the influence (DUI) cases assume that the evidence against them is too strong for them to mount a credible defense, even if they believe that they are being unfairly accused.

The fact of the matter is that a breathalyzer or blood test result can be questioned by skilled and experienced legal counsel who understands the many technical issues that can create false or exaggerated readings or test results. For example, such common health conditions as GERD/acid reflux, or even having used mouth wash just prior to being stopped or having burped following the consumption of a single beer, can lead to higher breathalyzer readings. Moreover, procedural defenses can often result in an acquittal or a verdict in the defendant’s favor. These include lack of probable cause, failure of police to read Miranda rights, and the possibility that police mistook poor driving for a DUI. All of these defenses, and many more, can often lead to surprisingly positive outcomes when legal counsel knows the terrain.
