Effective DUI Defense Strategies
To validate an arrest, an officer needs to have probable cause to think you committed a criminal act. For drinking and driving charges, an officer needs to have reasonable belief that your ability to safely operate your vehicle was compromised to some degree by alcohol or drugs. I investigate the important questions in your case, such as:
- Why did the officer stop you?
- Was there a valid basis for police contact?
- If there was a driving violation, what facts support it?
- Did the officer have sufficient evidence to believe you were intoxicated?
- How did you perform on the portable breath test and other sobriety tests?
Once an officer makes contact with an individual, he or she is making notes that lead him or her to believe you are intoxicated. At the law offices of Liggett, Johnson & Goodman, P.C., I am reviewing the facts to verify that the officer followed the requirements that the courts have established.
Analyzing Blood and Breath Test Results
If the police misstate your performance on any sobriety tests, I will work with you to uncover it and file to have the evidence suppressed at a suppression hearing. By getting evidence suppressed, it greatly hampers the district attorney from going forward on your case.
My job as a defense attorney is to hold police officers accountable in the legal process. Once an individual is arrested and gives a blood or breath test, the police are required to follow specific evidence requirements in terms of chain of custody as well as regulatory requirements in administering the Intoxilyzer and the blood tests.
