A DUI Arrest Can Have a Permanent Impact on Your Life
The moment you see the flashing lights and hear the blaring siren of a police car, your heart begins to race, and you know that your life may be forever changed. The testing to see if you are legally drunk is only the start. An arrest, a phone call home, and a court date brings fear, embarrassment and uncertainty of your future. Mr. Erwin has devoted his practice to DUIs, and has spent countless hours inside courtrooms fighting for his clients rights.
There are a large number of lawyers that take DUI cases, and much of the time they may tell you there is no use in fighting the case. These lawyers may not even practice criminal law regularly and they take these DUI cases because they want to help a family friend or help the daughter of a divorce client they represented years ago. The reality is that these lawyers DO NOT focus primarily on DUI Defense day in and day out. This doesn’t even begin to discuss what they don’t know about the potential revocation of your driver’s license through Summary Suspension Hearings.
Mr. Erwin handles DUI cases every day. Many of these other lawyers think that just because you have been arrested for a DUI that there is very little hope of overcoming the prosecutor’s case or that you already have an automatic deal with a prosecutor that doesn’t change. Rest assured, the lawyer you hire can and does make a difference. Ask any lawyer you talk to how many DUI cases they have taken in the last two years. Ask them the last time they went to a jury trial or trial of any kind. If they cannot answer your question, you should consider hiring someone else.
Attention to Detail in Building Your Drunk Driving Defense
A drunk driving arrest does not mean automatic conviction and punishment. DUI Attorney Brian Erwin will pick apart every detail of your DUI case to build an effective drunk driving defense.
He analyzes the reason for the traffic stop and the arrest. Were your rights violated? If so, he may file paperwork to have your case dismissed.
Did you take any Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFST)? He will examine whether or not they were correctly administered and whether the officer was properly trained. If not, your case could be dismissed.
Did you agree to take a breath test or blood test? Was the Intoxilyzer machine working properly? Was the blood properly drawn and preserved? If not, your case could be dismissed on any number of issues that may arise. Brian requests administrative hearings and aggressively challenges the revocation of your driver’s license.
Time is of the essence in a DUI Case. You only have (46) days from the date of the arrest to protect your driving privileges. Mr. Erwin knows exactly how to handle your Summary Suspension Hearing case in addition to the criminal case against you. Mr. Erwin will defend you and provide you with the information you need to know what a DUI is and how a potential drunk driving conviction could impact your life.
