Being pulled over may not seem like something major; however, when a traffic stop results in a drunk driving charge, this matter is too serious for Louisiana drivers to just dismiss as a minor traffic violation. Whether it is a motorist’s first or third DUI charge, it is important to take these matters seriously, as they can carry harsh penalties.
At Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, we understand how serious these matters are. A strong defense could mean the difference between being convicted of a DUI and having the charge dismissed. Not all drunk driving charges are the same; therefore, we take the time to understand what happened in each of our client’s unique situations and determine what defense option is the best for them.
While a DUI is not a severe as other criminal charges, it is still a serious matter that can be rather complex. Thus, our law firm takes the time to consider whether there was a lawful stop, what steps law enforcement took, whether the field sobriety test was properly conducted and if the breath test was properly administered. If a misstep was taken, this can help us poke holes in the case, resulting in reduced and even dismissed charges.
