A DWI conviction can alter your life forever because it paints a picture of you as reckless, careless, and predisposed to being an alcoholic. You need an attorney who is very experienced in handling DWI cases and preferably an attorney who wins more cases than he loses. In addition to the above listed problems resulting from a conviction, you will experience a significant financial burden as well.
If you are convicted, you will loose your license for a period of time, usually six months, and you may not be able to drive to work. You surely will not be able to take your children to their games and other events they are accustomed to attending. The embarrassment will mount.
However, a DWI Attorney In Las Vegas NV can often work effectively to get the charges dismissed. He will challenge the breathalyzer test and the officer’s qualifications to administer the test. He will ask when the breathalyzer was last calibrated. There are many possible answers to questions about the breathalyzer test which could get the test thrown out as evidence.
The police may have obtained a court order to take a blood sample from you to analyze it for alcohol content. If this was done, then this test opens up a big area for your attorney to probe. He will want to know how the blood was handled and how it was stored. The question of the qualifications of the person who drew the blood will come into play.
There are numerous other issues the attorney can use to challenge the charge, however, hopefully you will not have said anything that has incriminated you. The 5th amendment to the Constitution gives you the right to remain silent and say nothing. Too many people stopped by the police on suspicion of driving while intoxicated convict themselves before they ever get out of their vehicle. They will say, “Yea, I may have had a few beers.” That is all it takes for the police to administer a breathalyzer test.
The driver who is charged will give his attorney much more to work with if he has said nothing to the police who will do everything in their power to intimidate the driver.
