Why Hire a DUI Lawyer?

Few criminal offenses require greater attorney expertise than cases involving driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. A successful b will have a complete understanding of chemical breath testing analysis, field sobriety testing and scientific principals related to anatomy, biology, chemistry, physiology, and toxicology. A skilled DUI defense lawyer will have spent a significant amount of time training in these areas so he can be more prepared and knowledgeable about these issues then the police officer who arrested you.

It is highly important you choose a knowledgeable and experience DUI lawyer who will aggressively pursue defenses based on issues related to search and seizure, due process, illegal interrogation, denial of counsel, and admissibility of evidence. There are several different types of DUI offenses with there being penalty enhancements based on prior offenses, high blood alcohol content levels and whether or not an accident or injury was involved. Year to year there are new harsher DUI laws and the penalties are getting dangerously draconian. Often times, an aggressive defense will lead to either a reduction or outright dismissal of charges. After a thorough investigation of all facts and evidence related to your case, Attorney Marin will explore every possible defense on your behalf. Whatever you do, please do not plead guilty without having your case reviewed by an experienced Rhode Island DUI lawyer such as James P. Marin.
