  • State v. H

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Apr 11, 2012
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty
    Description:
    The client was charged with DUI, this being his sixth DUI arrest. The officer administered field sobriety evaluations, which the client performed. After being placed under arrest, the client refused to take a state-administered breath test. In a bench trial, the judge found my client NOT GUILTY of DUI. The client was saved from the 120 days in jail and $3000 fine the State had recommended had he entered a plea.
  • State v. K

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Oct 02, 2012
    Outcome:
    Dismissed
    Description:
    The client was followed by police after it appeared she did not have valid registration. She then made a "sharp and fast turn" which the officer deemed suspicious. The case was dismissed after motions were filed contesting the officer's reasons for stopping her vehicle.
  • State v. A

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Dec 04, 2012
    Outcome:
    Dismissed
    Description:
    The client was involved in a very bad car accident and could not remember anything including whether she had actually been driving. She was ultimately charged with DUI. Photographs were taken at the scene that showed blood only in the interior passenger side of the vehicle. Because she was the only person in her vehicle that had been injured, we were able to show that she could not have possibly been the driver.
