It is common knowledge that DUI charges are often unfair. Many drivers arrested for DUI are not violating the law. They are either charged just because of a poorly administered field sobriety tests by ill-trained officers or because of a malfunction in the breath and blood alcohol testing equipment.

So if you feel like you are a victim of these unfair situations, immediately call for our help. The Law Office of Joshua A. Lopez, LLC has a history of an extremely high success rate when it comes to defending our clients. Check their testimonies for solid proof!

The proven defense strategies that may be employed for your specific case may include:

1. No actual physical control- You were not in charge of the vehicle at the time the incident occurred, or mechanical failure contributed to you being initially stopped.
2. Stopped with no reasonable suspicion- You did not exhibit signs of intoxication and obeyed all other traffic laws, but were pulled over anyway.
3. Arrested with no probable cause- You were arrested without being given a field sobriety test, no open containers were present in the vehicle, and there was no outstanding warrant for your arrest.
4. Poorly facilitated Field Sobriety Test (FST)- The sobriety test was not properly administered, or the arresting officer did not follow protocol.
5. Right to Counsel was denied- You asked to speak with an attorney, and the police continued their line of questioning without honoring your legal right to legal representation.
6. Miranda warnings were not given- You were not informed of your rights during the arrest process.
7. Breath testing device was inaccurate- The equipment used to determine your BAC was faulty, inaccurate, or incorrect. If your results are not reflective of your actual alcohol intake, then this can be a sign of a faulty or inaccurate device.
8. “Rising BAC” defense- Your blood alcohol level can continue to rise for up to 2 hours after you stop drinking. Not being administered a timely blood or breathalyzer test can mean that even though you are above the limit when the test was administered, you may have been below the limit when actually operating your vehicle.
9. Independent test was denied- You have the right to request a 3rd party blood alcohol test. If you are refused this right by the police, then we may be able to have any testing that they performed suppressed by the court.
