Compassionate Counsel Paired With Intelligent Defense Strategies
After being stopped for a DUI/DWI in Shelby County or one of the surrounding communities, the authorities can make it seem like you have little recourse for challenging the charges based on the evidence they bring against you. The arresting officer likely performed a field sobriety test, a breath test and even perhaps a blood test back at the station. However, these pieces of evidence rely on human administration, and subsequently, can be compromised.
We will assess whether the officer had reasonable suspicion to perform the stop and analyze the details of the police report, testimony of any witnesses as well as any other evidence. If there are glaring errors or omissions on the part of the authorities or those handling test results, the judge may have the evidence dismissed. We can also pursue a reduction or possibly a dismissal of the charges if the authorities infringed upon your rights or otherwise mishandled the arrest.
For young men and women under the legal drinking age or those under the age of 18, there are other consequences to a drunk driving charge that can have a lasting impact. The suspension of the individual’s driver’s license, fines and the stigma of a drunk driving conviction can follow a young person and act as a barrier as he or she pursues future employment and educational opportunities.
