DUI Defense

One of the worst experiences a person could have is being pulled over and accused of DUI. If you have been accused of a DUI you were probably stopped for weaving, swerving, speeding, another alleged traffic infraction, or involved in an accident. After being stopped by an officer you were taken from your vehicle and asked to perform feats of balance while an officer stood over your shoulder and analyzed your every step without really telling you what to do or how to do it. While not considering your nerves, your balance problems, your fatigue, your medical conditions and your mental state you were then told by that officer that you performed poorly on these roadside tests placed in handcuffs and arrested. After being whisked away to the jail you were sat in front of a machine and asked to blow repeatedly or simply refused to take a breath test. Your license was then taken from you and you were placed in a cell until the next morning. After your release from jail you wondered whats next, how can I fight this charge, should I fight this charge, how can I fight this charge, or what can I do……Call the Rickman Law Firm
