How We Handle DUI Cases
To obtain a conviction, the prosecution must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt at trial. Before they can even get to trial, they must withstand the challenges to the evidence we will raise on your behalf.
Frequently, police officers make mistakes in the process of making a traffic stop or a DUI arrest. Sometimes they even fabricate evidence to cover up their mistakes. We have won countless DUI cases by uncovering police errors.
In some cases, we discover errors by reviewing the videotape footage from the patrol officer’s dash-cam. Police cars now carry little cameras on their front dash. Sometimes, the video footage from the dash cam shows that the police officer failed to properly conduct a field sobriety test. Sometimes, they reveal that an officer has lied in a written report or even on the witness stand.
By reviewing dash-cams, fighting the results of breath and blood tests, reviewing police dispatch logs and other pro-active measures, we have won many DUI cases and obtained full acquittals and case dismissals for our clients. In some cases, we are able to get the charges thrown out for lack of probable cause.
Utilizing The Investigatory Experience Of A Former Police Officer
We have the ability to retain the investigatory services of a former police officer who has more than 35 years of experience in law enforcement. Attorney Kristopher K. Greenwood is the son of a former assistant chief of police in Ogden City and former chief deputy of the Weber County Sheriff’s Office. This helps our firm understand police procedure, field sobriety test, breath test or lawful DUI arrest. Pointing out errors in procedure can be a way to question the validity of a DUI test and can create grounds for a case dismissal on the ground that the DUI arrest lacked probable cause.
In felony DUI cases where the possibility of a significant prison sentence is very real, the investigatory assistance of a former law enforcement officer can be an important asset.
