Two components of a drunk driving case to consider
You have probably seen all of the public service announcements that warn you not to drink and drive. While those PSAs have some very good information, there are times when you still get behind the wheel after you have been drinking. In those cases, you run the risk of being pulled over if a law enforcement officer has reason to believe that you are driving drunk.
We know that you might not have meant to drive drunk. You may have just needed to get home or maybe there was some emergency that required you to drive. In these cases, we might be able to use that information as a component of your defense.
Your defense in a drunk driving case is important. Not only do you have to consider the criminal justice process that you will have to go through, but you also have to consider the administrative process that might lead to you losing your driving privileges.
Our law firm can help you with your defense strategy for both processes. While we aren’t necessarily able to promise you that you won’t have consequences for the drunk driving charges, we can work with you to keep the consequences that you will face to a minimum.
In order to mount your defense, there are several different points to consider. Each step in the traffic stop, arrest, and other points in the process could provide an opportunity to call something into question as part of your defense. We can only look into these possibilities if we have ample time to investigate your case.
