Building A Strong DUI Defense Case

Many people assume that if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured as being over the legal limit, they will automatically be found guilty. There are always means of challenging the evidence against you. Perhaps the Breathalyzer machine was not calibrated properly, perhaps the police did not have probable cause to stop you in the first place. We will thoroughly review the circumstances that led to your arrest and will pick apart the prosecution's case against you.

Driver's License Suspensions

In North Carolina, if you are arrested for suspicion of DUI, your driver's license is immediately revoked. In fact, the police will effectively hold your license "hostage" for 30 days unless you pay a fine to the court in order to get it back. However, it is possible to receive a hardship license that will enable you to travel to and from work without having to go to court. Our attorney can help guide you through this process if you have been hit with a suspended license.

Remember, Your Lawyer Is The Only One On Your Side

Did you know that if you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving and take a field sobriety test, the odds are already stacked against you? These tests are designed to produce a conviction — not to prove that you are sober. Don't voluntarily give the police an advantage. Instead, exercise your right to remain silent, and then call an attorney right away. Retaining a lawyer is the very best way to protect your rights.
