A person who has been arrested for a DUI needs to weigh their options in challenging these criminal charges. You may feel that you have little to no chance of avoiding a conviction, but this does not have to be the case. Just because you were arrested does not mean that you should be found guilty. A skilled criminal lawyer can help you fight drunk driving charges to help you avoid a conviction and even save your license from suspension by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).
When you work with our Boise firm, we provide a two-pronged approach to your case.
In addition to protecting your rights in criminal court proceedings, we will represent you interests at your DMV hearing to challenge the suspension of your license. As we handle both sides of the case, we have found that we are able to build a more effective defense. There are different approaches that we may take in challenging drunk driving charges, which may include looking at how field sobriety tests or a breath test was administered, whether an arrest was lawful, and whether the evidence against our client could hold any weight in court.
At Boise Advocate, our defense attorneys have represented hundreds of clients who have been able to fight their DUI charges and obtain successful outcomes. Our lawyers are aggressive litigators who are ready to help you—no matter whether this is a first offense or if you have multiple drunk driving convictions already on your record.
