A Grand Rapids criminal lawyer enables you to avoid license suspension
DUI convictions carry stiff penalties, such as the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, jail time, probation, heavy fines, community service, court-ordered rehab, etc. Though your first instinct might be to give in to these charges and take the penalty, there are a variety of means that your Grand Rapids criminal lawyer can use to secure a case dismissal or minimize your potential penalties. Our attorneys use defense tactics that challenge:
- Improper tests. Any officer who administers a field sobriety or Breathalyzer test must have the proper certification in those tests. Without that certification, any evidence collected through a test is invalid in a court of law. And Breathalyzer tests often produce misleading evidence due to improper administration or faulty equipment. Field sobriety tests can also be rather inconclusive, as there are not many tests that carry scientific legitimacy in determining intoxication. Therefore, the results of these tests are highly disputable.
- Police evidence. Police officers use a variety of driving behaviors to determine when a driver is potentially intoxicated. These include swerving in and out of lines, making sudden stops or starts, driving at slower speeds than usual and many more. However, these behaviors do not necessarily mean that you were under the influence of a substance. Also, you might not have been driving poorly at all. Our attorneys challenge the evidence provided by the arresting officer and provide rational, persuasive arguments for why your driving appeared to be erratic.
The methods we use for your case depend on your situation. Work with us to allow us to personalize our service to your legal needs.
