When you are ticketed for drinking and driving, you could wind up fighting two battles: one in the courts and one with the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). In court, you face the possibility of jail time, probation, or a heavy fine. The MVA also may try to suspend your license, depending on your actions.
Drinking and driving cases, tried in the District Court, are often complicated, covering factual, legal, and scientific issues, such as:
- The stop of the vehicle,
- Information regarding intoxication, and
- Evidence admitted in the form of a breath or blood test.
I have years of experience handling drinking and driving cases. I stay informed about the most recent defenses and mitigation available, and I have even been certified to administer the standard police field sobriety tests. In addition, it is imperative that you be evaluated for any alcohol problems by a professional substance abuse counselor. I am familiar with that industry and can help you set up an appointment with a counselor who is recognized and trusted by judges.
