If you have been arrested/charged with a DWAI or DUI, it is important to keep in mind that the penalties for these offenses can be both frustrating and nerve-wracking especially if it is a repeat offense. For situations like these, a DUI lawyer needs to have an arsenal of effective DUI defenses at their disposal so that they can properly defend you and your rights in court. A good DUI defense can not only convince the prosecutor assigned to your case to possibly reduce the charges against you but he might even dismiss them entirely.
Fortunately, our law firm has years of experience using several DUI defenses in Colorado Springs and Denver for our clients. To convince a jury that you are guilty or to get you to plead guilty, the prosecutor first has to establish that you were driving a vehicle, had consumed alcohol or drugs, and that you had drank or used enough to impair your driving ability. The key to a winning defense is the ability to challenge proof for these occurrences and at the law office of C. Robert Biondino Jr., we have the knowledge and skills to do just that.
What DUI Defenses Can You Use For My Case?
If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you are being convicted. Therefore, it shouldn’t be an excuse for accepting defeat and allowing that conviction to happen. Instead, you need to contact an aggressive, skilled DUI attorney who has proved successful with various DUI defenses. Some of the defenses that our law firm uses includes:
- Probable cause – law enforcement must have reasonable suspicion to stop you and probable cause to arrest you. Law enforcement are not allowed, under Colorado law, to pull you over simply for a driver’s license check, for instance. If probable cause is non-existent, we have the ability to file a motion and have any evidence collected from that traffic stop suppressed and thrown out.
- Medical conditions – law enforcement can testify that their reasonable suspicion came from your appearance including red eyes, slurred speech, or slow reaction times. However, there are medical conditions that can cause these symptoms and we can use this to our advantage.
- Inaccurate blood and breathalyzer tests – law enforcement are required to administer a blood or breath test when charging a person with a DUI. Colorado law requires that the machines for these tests be properly maintained and administered by a certified expert. If there is evidence of either not being done, we can possibly suppress the use of the tests.
- Inaccurate field sobriety tests – law enforcement are known for using field sobriety tests to determine if any individual has been drinking and driving including the walk-and-turn, touching your nose, and counting backwards. However, these are often inaccurate as certain individuals would find them difficult to complete. We can argue this and get the tests possibly thrown out.
Let Us Fight For Your Rights
Individuals who are charged with DUIs are usually upstanding citizens who have no criminal record and this can create the ideal that hiring an educated, experienced DUI lawyer is unnecessary. They believe that the courts will sympathize with them since they made a “mistake” and that the minimum penalties will be enforced so therefore, a DUI lawyer isn’t necessary. In most cases, this is the wrong type of thinking. DUI litigation is a complex process and requires sufficient education, skill, and experience to navigate it effectively.
The last thing any individual wants is an experienced criminal defense lawyer representing them in court with a rudimentary understanding of the DUI laws and how the procedures work. Our law office has the experience, education, and skills to effectively implement DUI defenses in Colorado Springs and Denver. Instead of trying to go through this alone, you need to put your trust in us and let us defend your rights in the courtroom.
