DUI/DWIs Can Be Defended

Some people believe that they simply cannot defend themselves against a DUI/DWI, impaired driving or another drunk driving criminal charge. The truth is, there are a number of factors that we evaluate to defend clients in Wisconsin, including:

  • The traffic stop: A police officer must have reasonable suspicion to pull you over. We review whether they had the necessary justification or whether law enforcement violated your constitutional rights.
  • Field sobriety test results: When officers do not properly explain a field sobriety test or conduct it in poorly lit conditions, or are simply not adequately trained, the results may not be valid. At Mays Law Office, LLC, we ourselves are trained in Standard Field Sobriety Tests just as the police. We can tell immediately if they’re doing them wrong.
  • Breathalyzer test results: Just because a breath test indicates a level over the legal limit to drive does not mean those results are accurate. User error and unreliable, inaccurate results can all produce a false positive.

Our attorneys analyze every piece of evidence in your case to strengthen your defense. In fact, our attorneys have created defenses to drunk driving and have litigated these defenses in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals and Wisconsin Supreme Court. This diligent approach to drunk driving cases often allows us to reduce your charges or to have your case dismissed altogether.
