Aggressive DUI Defense Lawyers
Our clients facing charges for DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, also known as drunk driving or DWI) want two things: to stay out of jail and to keep their driver’s licenses. The DUI defense team at the Ogden, Utah, law firm of Kristopher K. Greenwood & Associates provides experienced and aggressive defense representation on both fronts.
Most of our clients charged with their first DUI — 80 percent or more — are never sentenced to so much as a single day in jail. By any standards, that is an impressive record of success, especially since the average DUI is a Class B misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail.
Our capable attorneys provide the same high-quality service and aggressive representation in multiple DUI and felony DUI cases (three or more convictions in 10 years). When you are facing up to five years in prison, you know you need the help of an experienced trial lawyer with the proven ability to keep clients out of prison or minimize jail time. We also have a successful track record of beating DUI metabolite charges.
Don’t leave your freedom and your future up to chance or in the hands of overzealous police officers and prosecutors. If you are facing misdemeanor or felony DUI charges in Utah, contact us today for immediate assistance.
How We Fight DUI Charges And Win
First things first: If you were arrested for drinking and driving in Utah, you have only 10 days to request a hearing in order to keep your driver’s license. We can take immediate action to fight for your rights at the DLD suspension hearing.
Most law firms do not have the experience, resources and dedication required to conduct an immediate and thorough investigation into the evidence and procedural issues that may play a vital role in beating your DUI charge.
Attacking The Evidence
We attack the legal elements first. Our primary goal is to have all charges dismissed. If we can prove that the initial traffic stop was impermissible from the outset (e.g., lacked reasonable suspicion and/or probable cause), we can argue that all the evidence gathered as a result is inadmissible in court under the legal concept known as “fruit of the poisonous tree.”
If evidence is ruled admissible, we can often attack it vigorously and effectively. We have a proven record of success in beating DUI cases by challenging Breathalyzer tests, blood alcohol tests and other evidence. We can even help if you have been charged with the additional offense of refusal to test.
