How to Challenge DUI Charges

DUI (driving under the influence) cases may seem difficult to handle, particularly when there is seemingly solid physical evidence against you because you failed a breath or blood test or performed poorly on field sobriety tests. What you may not know is that there are actually various ways that an experienced attorney may be able to challenge your charges and work toward helping you avoid a conviction. Procedural, legal and evidentiary issues may all be potential grounds for a successful DUI defense strategy in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be in the hands of your defense lawyer to thoroughly investigate your case from every angle to determine the best approach.

Every single aspect of your case should be carefully reviewed. This may include the initial traffic stop, field sobriety tests, your arrest and breath or blood alcohol testing. A mistake, violation of your rights or deviation from standard procedure in any of these areas may offer sufficient grounds to prove reasonable doubt in court or a lack of evidence before formal charges are filed against you.

For example, the arresting officer may have claimed that you were “swerving in and out of your lane.” What if there is insufficient evidence to support this fact? What if you were swerving because you were looking at a map? What if your behavior can be explained by something that is not related to alcohol? An experienced attorney will look to any potential issue that will work in your favor.
