Therefore, fighting your case requires knowledge of criminal procedure and also of the substantive issues for each element of DWI.  

  • Are there issues about the operation?  Were you driving the car?
  • Are there issues about intoxication?  Were you impaired?
  • Are there issues with the officer’s administration of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests?  If these are not administrated exactly as prescribed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the conclusions may not be proven.
  • Are there issues that affected the results of your breath test?
  • Do you have any medical issues that could have affected any of the tests?
  • Did you refuse to take the breath test?  Are there issues with that refusal?
  • What type of license do you have?  Is it a Commercial Driver’s License?
