DUI Defense Attorney in Long Island
Could your DUI charge be defended?
Many people simply plead guilty after being arrested and charged with
DUI. They make no effort to find out if the charges could be successfully
defended, and lose the opportunity to do so the moment they plead guilty.
Others take a proactive approach and
contact a Long Island DUI attorney to take action.

Evaluating the Evidence: Step One in Your Defense Case
A full review of the evidence is the initial defense action that must be
undertaken. We want to discuss exactly what happened with you. We need
to evaluate the facts in police reports,
breath and blood test results, and every detail of the arrest procedure. There are many points
at which a game-changing error could have taken place, the first of which
is the initial police stop.
You are protected against racial profiling, or being stopped without reason.
If you were not operating your vehicle in an unsafe manner or violating
the law, law enforcement cannot stop you, with one exception being roadside
sobriety checkpoints, but even these must be operated correctly. There are cases in which the
police have conflicting reports about why you were pulled over. The careful
and strategic cross-examination of law enforcement can be extremely effective
in a DUI defense.

All matters related to testing must be analyzed. The unit used in your
case could have a history of faulty readings, may not have been correctly
maintained or calibrated, or there could be another significant error.
Blood testing is not completely free from error. Swabbing the arm with alcohol could impact the level of alcohol found
in the blood. When plasma is tested, the alcohol is more concentrated,
leading to a faulty reading. Every detail is reviewed. Many DUI cases
can be successfully defended or could be dismissed. You owe it to yourself
to find out what can be done in your individual case.
