Being arrested or charged with
DUI can be a terrifying experience, particularly if you failed a field sobriety
test or have been told by a police officer that there is sufficient evidence
to warrant your arrest and conviction.
Neither a failed field sobriety test nor a breathalyzer test showing you
had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or more at the time of
your arrest are enough to guarantee a conviction.
These types of tests are highly subjective and their results can be adversely
affected by human error, regardless of what your arresting officer or
the prosecution may lead you to believe. For that reason, it is very important
that you never admit guilt or discuss the circumstances that lead up to
your arrest without first obtaining legal counsel.
A simple admission that you had a drink earlier that night, a statement
about that fact that you are currently taking prescription medication
or a refusal to submit to breath or blood tests can all be used against
you in a court of law. This can make it more difficult for an attorney
to defend your case and help you seek an aquittal.
You Need an Aggressive Defense Attorney
Your best chance of being able to refute DUI evidence is to exercise your
right to remind silent and hire a DUI attorney you can trust to aggressively
fight on your behalf. Attorney Burmaster is well aware of the defense
strategies that can be used to effectively refute DUI evidence and, during his
more than 20 years
experience practicing law, has used many of these defense methods to help clients
avoid facing DUI charges and penalties.
An illegal police stop, incorrectly administered field sobriety tests,
an improperly trained officer, an improperly calibrated breathalyzer and
numerous external factors can all contribute to the results of such tests.
Having a skilled DUI attorney on your side who has a propensity for uncovering
the errors made in the arrest or testing process, can make all the difference
in whether you will face criminal charges on your record.
