I DRANK BEFORE I DROVE. THEREFORE, I MUST BE GUILTY. RIGHT? WRONG!!!!!
A failed breath test is not a conviction.
You have a right to due process, despite law enforcement’s recommendation that you ‘just pay the fine.’ If you’ve been cited for an alcohol or substance related driving offence let us explain your rights and defend you against these charges.
In some cases, the evidence collected against you is the result of an invalid search and seizure. Our experience and knowledge in search and seizure law means we will analyze the case against you and ensure improperly obtained evidence is not used against you.
A conviction is not cut and dry.
If you have been convicted of an alcohol or substance related traffic violation, our familiarity with DUI law helps us in working to minimize the punishment you face. It may even be possible for you to acquire a hardship license following your suspension.
Just because you have marijuana or any other drug in your system does not mean your are guilty of DUI.
Most drugs stay in your system long after their influencing effect has stopped. You need a criminal defense attorney who knows what “under the influence truly knows.” At the Thompson Law Office, we know the law and, we know what evidence should be presented to a jury to prove your innocence. The government may claim that your blood/breath/urine test came back "positive" but, they need to prove that claim beyond a REASONABLE DOUBT. The family of attorneys at Thompson Law Office can help you tell the jury the truth about "influence." Let our family work for yours at the Thompson Law Office.
You have a right to an independent test at your own expense.
You do not have to agree to submit to the breath or blood test that law enforcement asks you to take. While a "refusal" can possibly result in a lengthier license suspension, it can also mean the difference between providing the government with the evidence they need for a conviction versus an acquittal.
Even if you submit to their tests, you have an absolute right to your own test at your own expense. A failure by law enforcement to advise you of this right or, to refuse your request to take you to get this test done can possibly mean the suppression of any evidence seized by the government, including the results of the breath test. The Thompson Law Office will fight to make sure your rights are protected and help to keep you on the road.
