A DUI offense, if you are convicted, can have very serious consequences. A first time DUI is not a minor legal problem – you will lose your legal right to drive, will be required to pay expensive fines, be forced to attend DUI classes, and will have a long term of probation, and these penalties are just for the lucky ones. You have the potential of facing 6 months without the ability to legally operate your vehicle, and you could be forced to spend up to 30 days in jail. It is imperative that you have a legal professional on your side that has the skills to pursue a better outcome for you.
The duty of defending against a DUI charge involves the ability to engage in an in-depth evaluation of every detail of the case against you. All evidence must be carefully reviewed, from the initial stop that led to your arrest, the cause for the stop itself, the nature of the sobriety test delivered and how many were performed, as well as the arrest procedure, and any chemical testing methods and administration. There are many, many cases that could have been successfully defended had the accused person had a quality Lexington DUI defense lawyer review the case prior to pleading guilty. Don't take a chance with your right to drive, your freedom and your criminal record. Get professional legal representation that understands the criminal justice system and the strategies for success at trial.

Are you caught in the criminal justice system on a DUI offense in Lexington?
Law enforcement and city leaders are determined to reduce the numbers of drunk drivers on the road. They are out in force during weekends, holidays and late at night looking for those who appear to be exhibiting signs of intoxication. In some cases, a person is pulled over due to a minor infraction, such as burnt out taillight, and subsequently arrested and charged with DUI. The officers may see signs that indicate that the person has been consuming alcohol. The most common reasons given by law enforcement in these cases is the "smell of alcohol" or "red, bloodshot eyes." If there is clear evidence that can be easily seen, such as an open container of alcohol, which is in itself illegal, law enforcement will proceed with the DUI process immediately. You will be asked to get out of the car, and to perform field sobriety tests.
Law enforcement can become overzealous, or even overstep the bounds of the law in certain actions taken against drivers. Accusing you of "swerving within your lane" would not be an adequate reason to pull you over, as you have not violated the law. It is important that your rights under the constitution are fully protected. An illegal police stop can lead to all of the evidence in your case being suppressed. No evidence to convict will mean your case will be dismissed. It is extremely important that you have a quality defense attorney that has great insight into the legal process, including police procedures, testing administration, the science behind Datamaster testing and results, and the various failures that could impact your BAC reading. The firm goes the distance in every case taken on.
