Our attorneys can often find oversights, inconsistencies, and outright errors and mistakes in the State’s results that can lead to your charges being reduced or outright dismissed.
The State must prove that the accused was in actual physical control of the automobile to get a conviction. Depending on the circumstances, our attorneys can use the prosecutor’s lack of ability to prove this element to achieve favorable results.
Suppose the officer who pulled over the driver’s car did not have a legal reason to do so (like the driver committed a traffic violation). In that case, our attorneys can have filed the appropriate motions and ultimately dismissed the case.
Suppose the police have no evidence that the driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs after the driver is stopped. In that case, our attorneys can argue for the dismissal of the charges.
If you requested to speak to an attorney and were denied that right. Then our attorneys can use that fact to have blood alcohol content results precluded and possibly have all your charges dismissed.
