Case Results

Dismissal by Judge of DUI charge at pre-trial motion hearing, after we obtained and analyzed state’s evidence and successfully argued to convince the judge that this was an illegal stop, with legitimate questions about whether client was impaired or committed any less safe driving. This was a third DUI charge against our client, and she was facing 12 months in jail and a 5-year loss of driver’s license, all avoided by our defense efforts on her case.
