Each member of our legal team has extensive experience fighting the results of DUI breath tests. By examining your case and helping you answer the questions listed above, we may be able to uncover police misconduct or an unlawful arrest. Law enforcement officers must follow strict procedures and laws when it comes to pulling over a suspected drunk driver and conducting field sobriety and BAC tests. Breathalyzer machines are extremely delicate and sensitive instruments and must be properly calibrated before each and every use. If your arresting officer made a mistake when calibrating the machine, or if they failed to do so at all, your case could be dismissed. Likewise, you could obtain a dismissal if your DUI stop or arrest were unlawful, in the first place.
At Carter & Putnam, our Lees Summit DUI attorneys understand the intricacies of breath-testing machines. We constantly review new case law and statutes to look for defenses against these charges. We have used our skills, background and experience as seasoned DWI/DUI criminal defense traffic lawyers to help literally thousands of people and WE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU.
