DUI & Criminal

A conviction for DUI could result in jail time, loss of your license, mandatory (court-ordered) counseling, and expensive fines.  Before you are arraigned on the charges against you, a preliminary hearing is held to determine whether your arrest was lawful.

At Black & Older, our DUI attorneys use preliminary hearings to question police conduct, challenge the calibration of the breathalyzer used, and determine if probable cause existed to pull you over in the first place.  Additionally, we request that an independent lab test your blood samples to determine if the results are lower than the level claimed by the state.  If you actually are guilty of DUI, we work with the court to reduce the charges against you, and to explore alternatives to jail time or loss of your license.

Your criminal defense will include us (a) reviewing police reports, eyewitness statements, and the evidence involved; (b) identifying violations of your rights; and (c) following up with leads and suspects dismissed by the prosecution.  With the permission of our clients, we enter into plea bargain arrangements to get charges, fines, and jail time reduced or eliminated.

Don’t wait until a serious problem becomes critical – contact Black & Older today. We provide free confidential consultations without any financial obligations attached.

Challenging DUI Charges

Despite what many people might think, breathalyzers are not always accurate.  Like any other machine, they must be regularly maintained and serviced.  Our DUI defense attorneys obtain a copy of the police video of your arrest, police report, and maintenance records on the breathalyzer used in your arrest.  Our breathalyzer experts can determine if the machine in question was improperly calibrated, if it has a history of maintenance problems, and whether the arresting office administered the test correctly.

While each case is different, the preliminary hearing provides an opportunity to introduce evidence calling into question the reliability of breathalyzer results and police conduct. As your criminal defense lawyers, we fight for the best possible outcome for our clients.
