Challenging DUI Charges in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach, Jupiter and Palm City

How can an attorney build an effective defense against DUI charges? This is a crucial point to consider if you have been arrested or are currently facing criminal charges for drunk driving or any related offense. When you consider the dramatic impact that a DUI conviction may have on your life, it is evident that you need to involve a professional who can actually help.

It is true that drunk driving charges are typically based upon hard evidence that law enforcement believes indicates that a driver was “under the influence” at the time he or she was driving. This is typically proven through the use of breath or blood test results that showed a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater. Law enforcement may use field sobriety test results and an officer’s observations or statements the driver made as other ways to prove DUI, depending on the particular circumstances. Your DUI lawyer needs to understand exactly how to counter this evidence and how to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against you. This may actually be accomplished in different ways. There are various strategies that may work effectively against even the most seemingly solid drunk driving charges:

  • The breath test is unreliable because it was administered improperly, the breath test device was not properly calibrated, the machine malfunctioned or it otherwise showed a false positive result.
  • The blood test was inaccurate because an unqualified individual took the sample, because the blood sample was mishandled or because the sample was improperly mixed with anticoagulants or other chemicals.
  • The field sobriety test was administered incorrectly, or the officer’s evaluation of test results was inaccurate.
  • Some factor unrelated to alcohol or drug use led to a “failed” field sobriety test.
  • The arresting officer pulled you over without establishing probable cause.
  • You were unlawfully arrested.
