Top 5

Ways to beat a DWI?

  • 1) Reasonable Suspicion - Did the officer have a valid justification for stopping you?
  • 2) Collection of Evidence - Did the officer made a mistake while collecting evidence (BAC or Field-Sobriety Tests)?
  • 3) Wronful Arrest - Did the officer have a lack of Probable Cause to arrest you?
  • 4) Miranda / Knoll - Were your rights were violated at any time during or even aftter the arrest?
  • 5) Beyond Reasonable Doubt - Was this extremely high legal standard met?

Why should I hire a lawyer if I blow over 0.08 or higher?

Simple answer:  Being over the limit is not the only element of DUI/DWI.

In fact, a good portion of our victories in court have nothing to do with the level of intoxication.
