The laws against drinking and driving in Colorado are very well-established. This means that there are very particular protocols the police must follow in their investigation of a suspected drunk driver. Whether or not you decide to submit to the field sobriety tests, portable breath test or a chemical test of your blood or breath are all very important factors in your case. And if the police officer did not administer these tests accurately, that could be a reason for your case to be dismissed. You need an experienced lawyer to analyze your case.
Well-Experienced and Knowledgeable
The laws governing DUI can be very complex, and convictions can permanently stain your record, take away your driving privileges, and even put you in jail. That’s why you must find a lawyer that has experience in handling drunk driving cases.
Great DUI attorneys know the ins and outs of the game, and they can come up with a strong defense strategy to deflect charges brought against you. Your lawyer will represent you in the courtroom and file necessary motions on your behalf.
Have Access to Expert Witnesses
If you elect to give blood or breath sample, this will be evidence used against you in your case. However, improper maintenance or administration of these tests is more common that you would think and can be used to your favor. It’s important to have a DUI attorney review all aspects of your case. Most importantly, lawyers can conduct further investigation as well as have access to expert witnesses to support your defense.
Can Negotiate for a Reduced Sentence
DUI cases vary in terms of complexity but the charge alone is very serious. An experienced DUI attorney can help walk you through the evidence, the court appearances, and even a trial if needed. They can also help you with collateral consequences such as losing your drivers license or issues at work. And they can help you make the right decision about whether to take a plea in your case or push the government to prove their case in trial.
Having a DUI lawyer by your side will give you the best information and the best chance at a favorable outcome for you.
