One question everyone who has been charged with a DUI for the first time asks themselves at some point is whether or not they need to hire an experienced DUI defense attorney. People either believe that the cases are impossible to beat, or that there is nothing that they can do.
Part of this comes from the vast amount of misinformation that the police give people who have just been arrested. For instance they tell you that if you fail the breath test you will only lose your license for ninety days but if you refuse you lose your license for a full year.
What they do not tell you is that if you end up with a conviction that not only can you lose your license for a period between six months and three years but there is MANDATORY JAIL TIME – even on a first offense.
These cases can be defended, and routinely are. When we teach DUI defense to other attorneys we focus on a whole case approach – we do not just fight the breath test but we fight everything from the moment the cop saw you. Did he administer the field sobriety tests properly? Most likely not. Did he have a reason to arrest you? Did he have reason to make you take a breath test?
