Fighting A DUI Charge Requires Representation
DUI charges are among the most serious charges, and it is important that you get legal help. These charges can affect your future in ways you never thought of. From your job to your driving record, it’s normal to be nervous. You need an attorney who has the knowledge and experience you need. Beck, Jonson & Nolan, PC, has helped clients throughout Colorado since 1979, and we are here to help you, too.
What You Can Expect
Most commonly, defending a drunk driving charge means that we have to challenge the officer’s allegations. For example, while breathalyzers are typically used, they can be wrong. Perhaps the officer is newer and did not know how to properly give the test. There also is a margin of error, and your reading may not be legitimate. We can assess your case from beginning to end and help you determine the best possible way to fight this.
After you are arrested, the clock starts ticking. After you have been seen by a judge, the prosecutor has 45 days to take you to trial or dismiss the case. Your case can be dismissed after a judge sees evidence of wrongdoing. For example, if the cops stopped you illegally or without reasonable suspicion, a judge could dismiss your case. This is why it is important to act quickly and discuss your options with a lawyer as soon as you can.
