If you have been pulled over while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you likely got charged with a DWI. This charge can be devasting to your ability to live your life as you want to live it. Even worse, there are cases when you may be charged with a DWI despite not driving under the influence of any non-prescription drugs or alcohol.
No matter the circumstances of your DWI charge, a DWI lawyer can help you fight the charge and gain your freedom back. There are quite a few ways to fight these charges, and many of them may be used together to help you win your case.
Your DWI lawyer will help you by flagging the evidence against you as invalid or suspicious. Breathalyzer tests, for example, can be inaccurate. There is also the problem of probable cause. If you were driving perfectly normally and were showing no signs of intoxication, you shouldn’t have been pulled over in the first place. This means the evidence against you may be able to be thrown out. After all, if you were driving safely, then you weren’t a danger to anyone around you.
