Diligence During The Drivers License Hearing
One of the most important tools we use in developing and presenting the defense to repeat DUI charges is thorough preparation for the driver’s license suspension hearing at the Driver License Division. Our goal at the hearing is not only to protect your right to drive while the criminal case is ongoing, but also to develop the record in such a way as to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and uncover procedural mistakes in the traffic stop, the arrest, or the chemical analysis of blood or breath samples.
Exposing weaknesses in the evidence can often open the door toward reduced charges or even dismissal. We also concentrate on strategies designed to protect you from repeat DUI sentencing that goes beyond the minimum punishment required under the facts of a given case.
No matter how serious the charges against you, keep in mind that the presumption of innocence that protects you also requires the prosecution to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. Greg Law’s police background gives him a good idea of how hard it can be to meet that burden of proof, especially when effective criminal defense strategies keep important parts of the evidence out of the record of the case.
