If you've made the unfortunate decision of driving while intoxicated in Charlotte, NC you'll need an experienced and knowledgeable DWI lawyer. At the Law Office of Jason H. Reece, our Charlotte, NC DWI defense attorney has been defending against drunk driving charges since 1995. Our experience means we understand all of the DUI/DWI defense strategies available. There are a variety of factors that come into play regarding DUI & DWI charges so contact The Law Office of Jason Reece today for a consultation.
Defense strategy one involves determining whether the police had a legitimate reason to stop you. Were you speeding or driving recklessly? Was there an accident? Did the police have no valid and legal reason to stop you? If so, we may be able to get the case dismissed.
Even in cases involving traffic checkpoints, which are big in North Carolina, there are steps that police have to take in order to establish the checkpoint. Illegally established checkpoints can lead to case dismissal.
Defense strategy two involves determining whether the police had probable cause to arrest you. We will review dashboard videotape of the field sobriety test and other evidence to determine if the police had reason to charge you with DWI. If we determine that they did not, we will seek to have your case dismissed.
Defense strategy three involves reviewing the Breathalyzer test evidence. Currently, the police are switching from the intoxilyzer machine to the intoximeter machine. Regardless of the type of machine, there are requirements for calibration. If a machine is not properly calibrated, or there are flaws in the way the machine was used, the evidence may have to be thrown out, which can lead to the case being dismissed.
Defense strategy four involves looking at the way the arrest and the release were handled after bond was made. If the process was handled improperly, it cut off chances of having follow up testing done, which could lead to dismissal of the case.
