Being convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated can have serious consequences, including loss of your license, higher insurance premiums, heavy fines and jail time. If you were stopped and charged with a DWI/DUI in the San Antonio area or surrounding counties in Texas, BRCK Criminal Defense Attorneys can provide the diligent defense you deserve. Our attorneys understand that good people can make mistakes and that breathalyzers can give false readings. We have the knowledge and tenacity to challenge the evidence against you and pursue the best possible outcome.
A law enforcement officer’s quest for an arrest or a prosecutor’s desire for a conviction should never take priority over your right to fair treatment. The attorneys at BRCK Criminal Defense Attorneys may be able to have charges thrown out by demonstrating that an equipment or procedural error resulted in an unfair charge. We will examine whether or not law enforcement followed proper protocol in regard to:
Police must be able to demonstrate that they pulled you over based on “reasonable suspicion” that you were acting in violation of the law.
There are specific rules that police must follow when administering field sobriety tests, including when measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels.
Breathalyzer machines have provided inaccurate results in the past, and their reliability can be questioned.
Blood samples and other types of evidence must be stored in certain conditions in order to maintain their integrity.
If you are ever pulled over by the police on suspicion of drunk driving, there are several ways you can help yourself:
If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Remain calm and be polite.
Any evidence police find in your car can be used to support a DUI conviction.
Refusing to take a test may make an officer more suspicious and lead to an arrest. The results of a test can always be challenged later.
It’s a good idea to measure your BAC with a blood test after arrest. At trial, your DWI/DUI attorney may use that evidence to raise possible defenses.
If you are arrested and charged with impaired driving, contact a DWI attorney immediately. The attorneys at BRCK Criminal Defense Attorneys can start working on your defense as soon as you call us for help
