Two Legal Proceedings
In all likelihood, your arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) resulted in two distinct legal proceedings. The first is a proceeding on the criminal charge itself. The second deals with the statutory summary suspension of your driving privileges. Each aspect of your case requires distinct legal procedures to protect your rights.
A Successful Defense May Be Possible
It is not enough to accept a police report and Breathalyzer test at face value. I ask tough questions to determine what really happened.
Did the police have sufficient cause to stop you and investigate?
Were the field sobriety tests conducted properly?
Was the Breathalyzer test accurate and was it conducted properly?
The answers to these and other questions may hold the key to a winning defense.
Seeking the Best Outcome Possible
We carefully review all of the evidence in your case together. Based on the evidence, I recommend a legal strategy to challenge your case in court. If you choose to fight your case, we proceed to trial.
Very often, the best way to resolve your case is to enter into negotiations. In that case, I work with the prosecutor to obtain the best possible outcome. Whether your case proceeds to trial or you accept a negotiation, the decision is yours, but it’s a decision that we make together after a full review of your case.
I aggressively defend people accused of all types of DUI charges such as:
- First time DUI
- Repeat Offense & Felony DUI
- Blood and breathalyzer tests
- Breath and blood test refusal
- Field sobriety testing
As a former prosecutor, I understand how prosecutors think, how to negotiate with them and just how far to press them. The Law Office of Douglas G. DeBoer will work to achieve an outcome that mitigates your penalties and which allows you to move forward with the least possible effect on your life and lifestyle.
