Everyone is rightfully concerned about drunk driving, and we should be equally concerned that anyone accused of this crime receive a fair trial. A conviction for DUI/DWI can result in a stiff fine, sharply higher insurance premiums and the loss of your driver’s license. You may even go to jail. However, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge, a reduction to a non-alcohol related driving offense, or at least mitigate the consequences of a conviction. Potentially successful defense strategies available to a DUI lawyer include:
Lack of probable cause to stop you
Improper administration of field sobriety tests
Inadmissible breath test results
Failure to read Miranda warning
The results of a breath test machine are only admissible if the machine has been properly calibrated and maintained, and if the operator is properly trained. A person can only be legally arrested for DWI if there is probable cause to make an arrest. A blood alcohol level over the legal limit at the time of breath testing at the police station may not reflect the blood alcohol level at the time of driving.
Sometimes impaired driving results in a fatality, which may lead to years in prison. If this issue relates to your case, please call our office for information on vehicular homicide.
A DWI attorney aggressively representing his client’s interests should explore all of these issues. The integrity of our legal system depends upon defense attorneys requiring the prosecution to prove each element of its case beyond a reasonable doubt. Our DWI Attorney has conduced DWI trials as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. He will put that experience to work for you if you are charged with the crime of driving under the influence.
If you have been charged with drunk driving call our office for a consultation.
Vehicular manslaughter may be charged against a driver who is involved in an accident that causes the death of another person. If alcohol is involved, a prosecutor may charge the person who has been drinking with vehicular manslaughter even if that person is not at fault and the accident was unavoidable. Police officers are understandably biased against drunk drivers, and will often jump to the conclusion that the drinking party was at fault. A motor vehicle fatality is not necessarily the fault of the driver who has been consuming alcohol.
As a former criminal prosecutor and currently a defense attorney, our DWI Attorney will thoroughly review the circumstances of your arrest and subsequent events, looking for a way to obtain a positive outcome for you. The following are just some of the issues he will tackle on your behalf:
What was the cause of the accident?
Was your alleged blood alcohol level properly calculated using certified equipment?
Is the prosecution able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt?
Were other drivers at fault for the accident, either entirely or partially?
Should an accident reconstruction expert be retained to dispute the prosecution’s case?
For aggressive, results-oriented representation, contact our DWI Attorney. He is a vehicular manslaughter lawyer with over three decades of experience. He can intervene quickly in urgent circumstances and help make sure you get the fair trial you deserve. Call our office today for a free consultation on your vehicular manslaughter case.
Crimes of Violence
Winning Violent Crimes Cases
No reasonable person accused of a violent crime, whether it’s murder, assault & battery, armed robbery, rape, or domestic violence, is unaware of the seriousness of his circumstances and the need to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. These charges, depending on the type and severity, can result in penalties that range from lofty fines to years in prison. You could lose your right to possess firearms or step foot in your own home.

Not every criminal defense lawyer, never mind every general practitioner, is capable of successfully defending an individual accused of a violent crime. Prosecutors are often highly experienced, tough, and seasoned trial lawyers. To maximize your chances of an acquittal or a fairly negotiated plea, your defense lawyer must possess these same qualities – and more.
Our violent crime attorney is a former prosecutor with over three decades of trial experience. He has defended individuals of accused of serious felonies, including homicide, attempted murder, rape, domestic violence, assault and battery, kidnapping, and weapons charges. His experience includes work as a prosecutor, judge pro tem, and court commissioner.
If you have been charged with a violent crime, you need to retain the best criminal defense attorney possible. Put our experience and expertise to work for you. Call us now for a free consultation on your criminal defense case.
If police are called as a result of a dispute with your spouse, you may find yourself facing criminal charges for domestic violence. After responding to the call, if the police believe there is probable cause that a criminal offense has occurred, either you or your spouse may face arrest and be required to spend the night in jail before the court sets bail.
Our domestic violence attorney is an experienced defense attorney, who has previously worked as a prosecutor, judge pro tem and court commissioner. He will take the time to listen and understand your side of the story. Often there is more to a domestic violence charge than meets the eye, despite hasty judgments that may have been made by law enforcement.
The consequences of a domestic violence charge can be very serious. Even if you are only charged with a misdemeanor, you may face jail time and be restricted from accessing your own home. In some cases, you may lose your job. Your right to own or possess firearms may be taken away.
We will thoroughly investigate your case to present all the facts and circumstances to the prosecutor, judge and jury. When the abuse claims are false or a result of self-defense, we will work hard to get the case dismissed. In other cases, we will seek alternative sentencing options to avoid jail time or seek to have the charges reduced. If your case requires a jury trial, we bring to the court experience trying hundreds of cases before judges and juries.
If you’ve been charged with domestic violence, call our office for a free consultation.
