The Most Successful Defenses for DUI Cases

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, you might feel that the mistake you made was justified in some way. There are a million reasons and excuses that could pertain to the situation, but the fact is, a court will never be swayed by a sob story. It looks at the law, which says that you are driving drunk if you ever operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.08. Even if you disagree with it, this is how the system works, so if you want to mount a good defense, it’s time to consult with a Las Vegas DUI attorney. A qualified attorney will listen to your case and present you with the most successful DUI defenses.

These are defenses  that actually work. To begin with, the DUI attorney in Las Vegas will attempt to ascertain why you were pulled over. Was there a valid reason? If not, this could be a reason to throw out the case. Another good defense hinges on an improper police procedure, such as improper questioning, a breach of your Miranda rights, flawed tests or measurements, and, perhaps the most potent of all, a medical condition. What these defenses have in common is that they call into question the admissibility of evidence that is used against you in the case. Nowhere does this allow you to justify driving over the legal limit, but it’s possible to argue that the case is invalid because of one or more of these defenses.
