Fighting a DUI Conviction: Your Legal Defenses

When you come to Frank Walker Law for help with your DUI charges, the first thing we will do is discuss the circumstances surrounding your arrest. Our goal is to identify any potential weaknesses in the case against you, and work to have your charges reduced or dropped. You are innocent until proven guilty, so the burden of proof lies with the prosecution.

Some of the factors we will look at when examining your case include:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to make a traffic stop?
  • Was the breathalyzer machine properly calibrated?
  • Was an arrest made solely due to a failed field sobriety test?
  • Was the officer properly trained to administer a DUI test?
  • Did the arresting officer follow all proper procedures?
