If you have been arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI), it is likely that you provided either a breath or blood sample to police officers. Breath and blood tests are not 100% accurate and may not provide an accurate representation of your blood alcohol content at the time you were actually driving (or in actual physical control of) a vehicle. DUI cases are some of the most complicated and serious cases for many reasons. DUI cases involve several specific deadlines for filing pleadings and often require the use of expert witnesses and scientific explanations.
DUI investigations include several phases and require officers to perform very specific steps. A good defense attorney will study your DUI investigation to ensure the officers followed proper policies and procedures and to determine whether your rights were violated in any way. An officer’s failure to comply with the rules may result in a dismissal of your case.
