Effective Defense Strategies for DUI
After you have been arrested for DUI, law enforcement may pressure you to answer questions or take a plea deal. This experience can be very intimidating and overwhelming, especially when they tell you the potential consequences you could be facing. It is best if you can remain calm and allow our Glendale criminal defense attorneys to speak for you and build a defense strategy on your behalf. We work to fight the charges against you and seek the most favorable possible outcome.
A few tactics we may use to defend your DUI charges include:
- Breathalyzer: Questioning whether the breathalyzer machine was working properly and if the test was administered correctly.
- Field sobriety testing: Questioning what field sobriety tests were given and whether they were administered properly.
- Probable cause: Questioning if the police officer had probable cause to pull you over in the first place and what that reason was.
- Lawful arrest: Questioning how the arrest was made and whether everything was done properly and followed procedure.
Additionally, there are other reasons why a breathalyzer or field sobriety test could lead to a false positive. These are all factors which our legal team can investigate and bring up if we determine that they may help your defense.
