Experienced DUI Defense Lawyer Fighting For You

Drunk driving/driving under the influence (DUI) charges do not discriminate – they can happen to anyone. One mistake can leave you with a permanent criminal record. A skilled criminal defense lawyer will understand how to attack these charges and can help shield you from the most severe consequences.

I am attorney Karen D. Gerber, and I am one of a small number of lawyers in North Carolina who are board-certified specialists in criminal defense.

Building A Strong DUI Defense Case

Many people assume that if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) registers over the legal limit, they will automatically be found guilty. In reality, there are always means of challenging the evidence against you. For example, it’s possible that the Breathalyzer machine was not calibrated properly. It could be that the police did not have had probable cause to stop you in the first place. No matter what the circumstances surrounding your arrest, we will thoroughly review your situation and find the flaws in the prosecution’s case against you.

Fighting Driver’s License Suspensions

If you are arrested for suspicion of DUI in North Carolina, 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.

The Truth About Field Sobriety Tests

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.
