Ask any criminal defense attorney, one of if not the toughest charges to defend are driving under the influence (DUI) allegations. Why? Today’s law enforcement usually collects and disclose to defense counsel video and audio evidence (body worn officer camera), admissions (“I had 1 beer”), professional witnesses (police officers and crime lab forensic scientist), and your breath or your blood, or both, purporting to prove a blood/breath alcohol result (BAC result). Which is why you must hire a criminal defense attorney that has a depth of experience defending and fighting driving under the influence charges.

The state’s case just received a death sentence. They cannot go forward with any degree of certainty of a DUI conviction. The attorneys at the Rosenstein Law Group have a depth of experience getting alcohol results suppressed, meaning the State cannot use the evidence. In those instances, it is highly likely that Defendant’s case will resolve with no repercussions, or merely a fine, but no DUI.
Most police departments today collect blood rather than breath for the purpose of obtaining a blood alcohol result (BAC). The State must:
The steps outlined above can be riddled with errors, omissions, and failure to follow protocol. You need an attorney that can investigate your case to find the weaknesses and persuade the State to make you a good offer that you are happy with.
