Defending Your Case
Having a DWI charge is not easy. Challenging the charge can be very tricky and if you want to have your case fiercely defended, you need to make sure your lawyer is up to the task to challenge your charge. Our lawyers are going to look into your case and investigate it carefully to see if you have had your constitutional rights violated. Our lawyers know how to put together a strong legal defense for you to help you avoid the harshest consequences for your charge.
Here are some of the ways we can challenge a case:
- challenging if the stop was valid: we can take down a case if there was an error made by the police officer during your stop based on the reason why they stopped you to begin with
- challenging the qualification of the officer who did your sobriety test: If we can see that the person who ran your sobriety test, did not have the proper certifications or were not qualified, we can have the test ruled out as invalid
- challenging how accurate the evidence is: we can investigate to see if there is reason to believe that the testing was inaccurate which can allow us to make that evidence unusable against you
Your DWI arrest record doesn’t mean you’re guilty of anything; Friedman & Ranzenhofer can help you clear your name and move on after a DWI arrest.
