Colorado Springs DUI Attorney
Have you been charged with DUI?
When charged with a DUI offense in Colorado, your blood alcohol content (BAC) would have to have measured .08% or greater in order to warrant an arrest. This can be a frightening experience, especially if you don't believe you were drunk or were over the limit. Should you fight your charges? Absolutely! Too often individuals charged with DUI will plead guilty and accept the penalties. While it certainly is not enjoyable to have to take legal action to defend yourself, the result of a DUI conviction can leave lasting effects on your future. By retaining a Colorado Springs DUI attorney, your chances of keeping your license and avoiding a conviction can be increased greatly.
At The Law Office of McClintock Criminal Defense, P.C., we have over 15 years of helping residents in our community to fight for their rights when facing a DUI offense. We can help you at your Department of Motor Vehicle hearing to help avoid the automatic suspension of your license following a DUI arrest. Current law in Colorado allows for a mandatory 9 month revocation of your license. This suspension could lead to job losses, higher insurance rates and other financial repercussions. Let our legal team help you with both your administrative hearing at the DMV to avoid your suspension, as well as in fighting your criminal charges for the DUI offense.
How a Colorado Springs DUI Attorney Could Help
Our firm can fight for your rights if you were accused of first time DUI, multiple DUI, underage DUI, or commercial DUI. If you were allegedly involved in DUI with injury, you could be facing serious felony charges, depending on the severity of the injuries. If someone was killed in the accident, you could be convicted of vehicular manslaughter. The penalties for fatally injuring another person while driving under the influence of alcohol include: prison, fines, restitution, and driver's license revocation. Many people do not realize that DUI refers to more than just drunk driving. It always refers to driving under the influence of drugs. Drugs can impair your driving just as much as alcohol, and in some cases worse.
There are specific legal defenses that can be used to fight your charges that we have extensively applied to DUI cases. Such things as the initial traffic stop may have had no probable cause leading up to it, allowing your attorney to challenge any subsequent evidence gained thereafter. The testing of your blood or breath may be conducted inaccurately, either through operator error, lack of training, or defective testing equipment. Your field sobriety test may also have been inaccurate, which would lead to a dismissed case. There are always possibilities of finding a method of having your charges reduced or dismissed. If a trial becomes necessary, we are here to fight aggressively for an acquittal on your behalf. Call us today to find out how we can help you.
