Each situation resulting in a DUI (driving under the influence) charge is unique and therefore requires steps and defense strategies tailored to that particular situation. After gathering all of the facts and investigating the evidence against you a defense attorney should consider your particular set of circumstances and advise you as to your best course of action.
In the event you are most likely to get satisfactory results by going to trial, several strategies will likely be considered or employed, again, being dependent upon the facts of your individual case.
One of the very first questions to ask when charged with DUI is whether the police had sufficient cause to pull you over;
In the event you are subjected to a breath test, it must be determined if the police officer properly followed the protocols for an accurate breath test.
Perhaps what the officer viewed as signs of impairment, during the DUI stop, were actually symptoms of another cause.
Perhaps there are inconsistencies in the police report which can be used to show a lack of credibility if/when the officer testifies.
