Challenging your Alpharetta DUI case

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 02, 2011 | 0 Comments

A DUI arrest is troubling.  Following a DUI arrest, people feel nervous, angry, and overwhelmed.  This doesn't have to be the case.  An experienced DUI lawyer can help ease your worries and begin mounting defense strategies to get you the best possible outcome possible.  There are many aspects of a DUI case that can be challenged.  As a general overview, a DUI attorney can look at the reasons for the stop. There needs to be some articulable suspicion that a traffic offense is being committed for the officer to pull you over.  It cannot be random.  If you were stopped at a roadblock, there once again needs to be certain procedures that law enforcement officers need to have followed to make the roadblock lawful. 

In many instances, the officers fail to properly administer field sobriety tests or they devise their own tests which are arbitrary and certainly not evidence of DUI.  The breath tests utilized in DUI cases are unreliable and often give inaccurate results.  The timing of the tests and the warnings the officers read to you are also areas that need to be thoroughly examined and possibly challenged.
