A DUI attorney can help you by looking for flaws and mistakes in the state’s case against you. This includes looking at the reasons the police pulled you over in the first place. In order for a traffic stop to be valid, the police must be able to show that you broke at least one traffic law or that they had some other logical reason for stopping you. An experienced DUI attorney can help determine if the traffic stop was valid or not.
A DUI attorney will also help you by looking for any errors made by the police while they conducting tests to determine if you were impaired or not. These tests can include field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and the testing of blood samples if you refused to take a breathalyzer. A DUI attorney can help verify whether the testing was performed properly and according to the state’s guidelines, and if the testing equipment used was properly calibrated to prevent inaccurate and false readings. An experienced DUI attorney will also review other circumstances regarding your arrest, such as making sure you have been read your Miranda rights and that police respected those rights.
