The defense of a DUI case requires experience in this very specialized field. In addition to being well versed in evidentiary, criminal, and constitutional law, your Denver DUI attorney must understand the science behind your blood alcohol test, and have the experience to understand how the police make DUI arrests in the Denver area. Kevin Churchill has represented hundreds of former clients that have been charged with Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs. Experience in the field is what will help him to uncover the weaknesses in the evidence against you, and try to help you avoid an alcohol related driving conviction.
The consequences for a DUI conviction can include both lengthy jail sentences as well as the loss of your privilege to drive. Even first offenses carry a 90 day revocation of your driver's license and mandatory jail if your blood alcohol content is very high. Our first objective is to help you avoid a conviction altogether, and if that cannot be done, then to help you avoid unreasonably harsh penalties in Denver courts and at the DMV.
The defense of your case will involve many layers of analysis, beginning with the constitutionality, or legality, of your traffic stop (or contact from the police for whatever reason). If the police did not have probable cause to stop you to begin with, then all of the evidence against you must be thrown out. If the evidence is legally admissible against you - then the analysis turns to the reliability and credibility of the evidence itself. With field sobriety tests being given incorrectly, breath machines committing testing errors, police failing to follow procedures, and evidence being improperly collected - many of those charged with DUI take a conviction when they shouldn't.
Your guilt or innocence under Colorado DUI law rests on evidence that must be closely examined before you plead guilty to any alcohol driving offense. The penalties for a DUI conviction are too great to ignore the possibility that the evidence against you is wrong. Experienced drunk driving defense involves never accepting the evidence on its face. We will scrutinize the evidence that other lawyers may assume can't be defeated, because we understand that DUI evidence is much more complicated than meets the eye. Please give our office a call. Mr. Churchill will directly answer any questions you may have regarding your case, and give you advice about what you should do to protect your criminal record and your driver's license.
