Are you facing charges for an alleged driving under the influence of intoxicants offense? This offense is commonly referred to as DUI or DUII. Individuals usually face these types of charges when they fail blood alcohol concentration testing (or BAC testing) provided by law enforcement. For those who are accused of committing DUI with drugs, blood tests are typically used as evidence against the drivers in question. There are actually many different types of defenses that can be used against such "evidence," such as technical and human errors that leads to false test results. Whether you are being accused of a first DUI offense or a subsequent offense, I can help you challenge your charges.
