The burden of proof in a drunk driving defense case is going to be on the prosecution. This means that they will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty of the crime for which you are charged. As a drunk driving defense attorney, I know how the legal system works. I work tirelessly for my clients. Many of my cases have resulted in charges being reduced, dismissed or acquitted if a trial even occurred.

Some of the most common drunk driving defenses have involved the legality of the initial traffic stop, and whether or not the field sobriety testing was refused. A faulty roadside test and the issue of whether or not your arrest was within the legal limits can sometimes be questioned. Police officers must have a reason for pulling someone over. They need to provide evidence that a crime was committed, or is being committed, for a court to convict you. A lot of times, police videos have helped me get cases dismissed. If you're facing charges of drunk driving, call me for help in Newport News & Virginia Beach, VA.

A DUI attorney can work to prove that there was no probable cause for your traffic stop. Another possible defense is if the police officer failed to get sufficient proof that you were impaired before an arrest was made.
