Skilled Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges

Last updated on October 4, 2023

If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI), you already know that the consequences are severe and could impact many aspects of your life. Losing your license can make it difficult to get to and from work or to transport your family. News of your DUI/OVI charges could threaten your employment or your standing in the community. You could be facing jail time and/or significant fines.

The good news is that you have more options than you probably realize. When you hire Bouldin Law Firm, you’ll have an attorney with more than 20 years of experience in criminal law, including drunk driving defense. From our very first meeting, we can discuss the details of your case, make you aware of all of your legal options and accurately predict the outcome of each option you might choose. Through it all, you’ll get straight answers and personalized attention.

How Can Drunk Driving Evidence Be Challenged?

DUI and OVI charges often seem irrefutable because they are based on evidence such as breath tests, field sobriety tests, and officer observations. But we will scrutinize this evidence to determine if it can be successfully challenged and dismissed. Areas of scrutiny include:

  • Did the officer have a legal reason to pull you over in the first place?
  • Were field sobriety tests administered correctly or did the officer make mistakes?
  • Could you have failed field sobriety tests for reasons other than intoxication (such as medical conditions or balance issues)?
  • Was the breathalyzer test administered correctly?
  • Was the breathalyzer device properly and recently calibrated?

These are just some of the questions we will ask as we thoroughly investigate your case.

Resolving Charges In Other Ways

In some cases, clients prefer to resolve their DUI/OVI charges through a plea deal or a prosecution/sentencing alternative. We will discuss which programs you may qualify for and help you resolve your charges in a way that best fits your needs and goals.
