Crestview DUI Lawyers
Discuss DUI Defense Options Today with a Team You Can Trust
After being arrested for a driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol charge in Crestview, Florida, your first instinct might be to just plead guilty to try to complete the legal process as soon as possible. After all, the police will certainly try to convince you that things are easier if you cooperate and accept the penalties associated with a conviction. Vanover Law Firm and our Crestview DUI attorneys are here to tell you to second-guess that instinct and fight for your rights.
If you get convicted of a DUI, it is highly likely that your driver’s license will be suspended for at least one year. The ramifications of such a suspension will be widespread and hurtful, possibly impacting your job, education, and other important facets of your personal life. The only way to try to prevent these harsh consequences is to challenge the charges.
Ways our Crestview DUI lawyers can fight your charges include:
- Questioning legitimacy of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level test results.
- Determining if police had no probable cause to pull you over in the first place.
- Arguing that a DUI checkpoint was unlawful – no advanced warning.
- Analyzing evidence to see if it was mishandled.
No matter the strategy needed to defend your rights as much as possible, we want to be the legal team that represents you. Contact our team of criminal defense attorneys in Crestview today to learn more about our services.
