DUI Cases We Can Handle
Defending a DUI charge takes know-how and experience. We have worked within
the criminal justice system for years and have a proven record of success
in defending our clients in a variety of DUI offenses. We are well-versed in
DUI defense, no matter whether we are taking on a
first DUI offense or if our client has had multiple DUI arrests and is now being accused
with having a blood alcohol concentration of
over 0.2%. We know just how daunting
DUI penalties can be and we will do everything that we can to help our clients protect
their legal rights in every way possible.
We have the knowledge and resources to handle virtually any type of DUI-related charge.
This includes any of the following:
No matter the circumstances of the initial arrest – no matter whether
you supposedly failed a
blood test or
field sobriety test, if you are being accused of a
breath test refusal, if you believe that you were subjected to an
unlawful / illegal police stop or if you were arrested at a
DUI checkpoints that you believe was unconstitutional –
we will fight for you. We know
the courts and we know the laws. From handling the
DMV hearing to protect you from
license suspension, to helping with cases involving the
violation of DUI probation,
plea bargains and other
traffic infractions, we have proven time and time again that we have the extensive experience
necessary to capably handle these cases.
One of the most serious situations that a driver may find him or herself
in is facing criminal charges for a second, third or subsequent DUI. If
you have prior drunk driving convictions on your record, any future DUI
charge will immediately place you at risk of facing harsher penalties,
including a longer jail sentence (including a mandatory minimum term)
and heavier fines. A driver convicted of a third DUI or DWAI offense within
seven years will face mandatory driver's license suspension for five
years under Colorado's "
habitual traffic offender" statute. Providing comprehensive legal representation to drivers
facing multiple DUI offense allegations is a key part of our firm's
legal practice. We understand what is at stake if you have been convicted
of any type of drunk driving offense in the past and will fight to help
you avoid the enhanced penalties that come with a conviction for a second,
third or fourth DUI.
Field Sobriety Tests in Colorado
A key part of the case against you could be the field sobriety test. There
are three main standardized field sobriety tests used in Colorado. The
first of these tests is the
walk and turn test. This requires that the driver walk in a straight line while counting
their steps. If they lose count or cannot stay balanced, the law enforcement
officer will take it as a sign of inebriation. The second test is the
one leg stand test. In the one leg stand test, the driver is asked to stand balanced on one
leg while holding the other leg off the ground. Again, if they lose count
or cannot stay balanced, they could be arrested for DUI. Lastly, the
horizontal gaze nystagmus test examines the natural jerking of the eye that occurs. Since alcohol makes
this jerking more exaggerated, it could point to drunk driving. If you
were arrested based on the results of your field sobriety test, you should
contact our team today.
How can a DUI defense attorney help me?
It serves your best interests to make every effort you can to avoid punishment
and the stigma of a DUI conviction, our outstanding legal team is here
to help and to seek out the options to defend you in court. We are tough,
experienced and seasoned in the defense of all types of DUI charges and
are ready to discuss your case. We are committed to seeking justice for
our clients accused of all types of DUI charges, and urge you to contact
us as early as possible after your arrest. We have found that if we move
quickly, early in the case, we can increase the possibility of a better
outcome in DUI cases. The results of a conviction can be very serious,
particularly for those drivers who have been involved in an accident or
when someone was injured and subsequently the driver charged with DUI.
These cases are often charged as a felony, and if you are convicted, could
lead to time spent in state prison. There are terrible ramifications in
facing life as a convicted felon. A key way that a DUI attorney could
help you is by
challenging the evidence against you. Many people believe that once you have been accused of drunk
driving, there is no way to challenge your charges. This could not be
more false. With a competent legal professional on your side, a strong
case could be built on your behalf. For example, if you were arrested
based on the results of a Breathalyzer test, we could investigate the
situation in order to determine whether the test was administered incorrectly
or the machine was not calibrated correctly. If you were arrested because
of you failed a field sobriety test, we could investigate whether you
were pulled over illegally or not given instructions properly.
No matter what the details of your case, please do not hesitate to get
in touch with our office.
