Examining Your Arrest

A drunken driving arrest does not always automatically result in a conviction. We aim to examine every aspect of your arrest and the events that led up to it. This often involves speaking with the prosecuting attorney to obtain crucial information, such as the results of breathalyzer or bloods tests and the police report. We know that there are specific rules and protocols a police officer must follow; if there is any deviation, we will make this known to the court as the legitimacy of the arrest could be affected.

If you or someone you know has been arrested for drunk driving, don't hesitate to contact us for help.
