DUI Attorney Putting The Prosecution On The Defensive
The attorney you select can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. An overly aggressive approach can complicate matters, while a soft approach could result in stiffer penalties. As a former prosecutor, we know when to fight for a dismissal or begin negotiating for a reduction in penalties whether you are accused of:
- First-time DUI charges
- Felony DUI charges
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and narcotics
- Underage drinking and driving and other alcohol-related offenses
- Driving under the influence with a suspended or revoked license
- Reckless homicide or aggravated DUI
The arresting officers may claim to have incriminating evidence against you but do they? As your criminal defense attorney, Ernest DiBenedetto’s job is to put the prosecution on the defensive. He will dig into the evidence obtained against you to try and uncover any weaknesses or false assumptions made by law enforcement.
If law enforcement failed to have a valid reason to make a traffic stop, that may be grounds for the charges to be dismissed. Your attorney is fully prepared to question the legitimacy of Breathalyzer results if the machine was calibrated incorrectly. As former prosecutors, we also know the subjective nature of field sobriety tests. We will evaluate every angle possible to try and reveal any weaknesses in the evidence obtained against you.
