Building A Strong Defense Against Drunk Driving Charges
Drunk driving or driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges can happen to anyone, from college students to middle-aged professionals to retirees. For many people, a DWI charge is the first time they have any contact with the criminal justice system. If you have been arrested for suspicion of drunk driving, it can feel overwhelming and you may not know where to turn next. It is important to keep in mind that you are not alone and having a dedicated criminal defense lawyer in your corner can ensure that your rights remain protected throughout your case.
I am attorney Timothy J. Hennessy and I founded my law practice to help meet the needs of all people throughout the greater Buffalo, New York, area. If you have been charged with DWI, call me at 716-276-0980 to schedule a consultation.
Challenging The Evidence
When you have been arrested for drunk driving, it can feel like the best thing to do is simply plead guilty and move forward with your life. However, there are defenses available, even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) was measured above the legal limit of .08. It is possible that the Breathalyzer machine wasn’t properly calibrated or the test may have been improperly performed. The police may not have had probable cause to make a traffic stop in the first place, effectively throwing out any evidence gathered from the stop.
I will thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding your arrest, looking for any way to mount an effective challenge. I will do everything I can to help get your charges dismissed or reduced, and look for ways to help you maintain your driving privileges. I am here to help shoulder your burden and help you move past this incident as quickly as possible.
