Blue flashing lights in the rearview mirror are the last thing anyone wants to see on the way home from a night out. The situation is often traumatic and confusing, especially for first time DUI offenders. A conviction for DUI can be life changing – but a negative outcome may be avoided by hiring a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney immediately.
Remember, an arrest does not necessarily mean a conviction will follow. “I will conduct a complete investigation into your specific situation,” Michelle says. “As an experienced DUI attorney, I know what types of evidence to look for and what questions to ask – and how to spot weaknesses in a prosecutor’s case.” Even if you feel that you failed a field sobriety test or chemical test, including the Breathalyzer or blood/urine test, you may not be found guilty of the offense. The tests are often central to the prosecution’s case, but there are defenses available, and Michelle is familiar and proficient with them all. With close attention to detail, knowledge of the law, and capability within the legal system, Michelle will explore every aspect of your situation to discover what can be used to help your case. She is also skilled at representing those with prior DUIs, who will face harsher penalties, and knows the steps to take to protect your interests. The outcome will be a defense created on your behalf that protects your rights and strives to minimize any consequences you may face.
