To determine if you need a lawyer to help you fight your DUI case, answer the following questions:
1) Do you have specialized training in DUI investigation techniques, drug recognition and field sobriety exercises?
2) Are you an engineering expert who specializes in the inner workings of the Intoxilyzer 8000 including, but not limited to, software problems, the effect of air volume on BAC levels and the effects of electrical disruption and radio waves on BAC sampling?
3) Do you have experience in estimating the physiological affect of alcohol on the human body?
4) Are you trained in the rules of evidence and trial advocacy?
Unless you answered yes to all of those questions, you need a lawyer for your DUI! In today’s DUI world, having a lawyer who specializes in DUI defense is essential if you want to win your case.
Winning your DUI case depends on technical and biological knowledge. Police departments spend thousands of dollars to send their officers to specialized courses to have them labeled as “experts” in the field of DUI. The State ofFloridahas “experts” on the payroll who are paid to come to court to explain to juries how breath testing machines work. Other “experts” are paid to tell the jury how reliable breath test results are.
If you do not have an experienced attorney who knows more than the state’s “experts” you will lose your DUI case!! In order to win you need an attorney who has knowledge in all off the areas described above. Only experienced attorneys who have tried several DUI cases will have the experience needed to challenge all of the aspects of your case from the arrest to the test results. Don’t do it alone. Hire an attorney who focuses on DUI defense.
