With a case as serious as a DUI case, you don’t want to leave your matter in the hands of inexperience. Your attorney needs to know how to handle your case and produce for you the best possible outcome.
How your DUI arrest occurs is a very important aspect of your case. If you were not pulled over but instead were part of a police checkpoint, you need to know how that changes your case. Most DUI cases are built around the proof that the police were able to see how your driving was impaired. But in a checkpoint scenario, they have not witnessed any such impairment. Your attorney needs to make sure all the procedures and laws regarding checkpoints were followed by law enforcement officers.
If they failed to do things incorrectly or there are inconsistencies in your arrest, these are valid defenses in order to preserve your license and have a positive result in your DUI case.
