Two Recent DUI/DWI Cases in Powhatan VA REDUCED
DUI Defenes in Powhatan County
At Leavitt & Martin, we specialize in representing clients charged with DUI or DWI. We have extensive experience and have successfully had our client’s charges reduced or even dismissed. Some examples of DUI defense that we have used successfully include:
- Breathalyzer Mistakes:Police use breath and blood tests regularly to determine the blood alcohol levels. However, there are many problems with both. If the officer makes a mistake while using a machine, the results may be invalid. Likewise, inherent inaccuracies can be shown which may also lead to dismissal.
- Roadside Test Errors: The standardized field sobriety tests also bring a wide range of inherent problems and user errors that can minimize their importance to the court and help my clients’ cases.
- Initial Traffic Stop: The officer who pulled you over must be able to articulate a reasonable suspicion for pulling you over. If they cannot demonstrate a reason for pulling you over, the Court may dismiss the case.
Hiring a DUI Lawyer
