DWI Blood Test or Breath Test? Let Our Aggressive DWI Defense Team Fight Your Case.
If you need aggressive representation to fight your DWI, Amber Spurlock uses her experience and training to challenge your case every step of the way.
After years of prosecuting in Military Courts-Martial and Federal Courts while an Active Duty Air Force JAG, Amber Spurlock is excited to be back home in Texas defending clients facing criminal charges. Over the past few years, she's focused on getting hands-on experience with the tests and instruments cops and prosecutors use against you when you are charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
Whether you only did field sobriety tests or you also gave a blood or breath test, Ms. Spurlock has the experience and certifications to aggressively challenge your case. It's the extra step of becoming certified to both administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and teach the SFST Certification Courses that gives her the edge to hold officers accountable.
Working hands-on with the Intoxilyzer 5000, the breath test instrument, and the Gas Chromatograph, the instrument used to test your blood, she has the knowledge to extensively challenge both the human error and instrument error that often occurs during the tests, resulting in falsely high alcohol concentrations.
If you want educated, experienced, aggressive DWI defense on your side, contact Amber Spurlock at The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates. She will fight your case and get the results you want!
