Defenses for DUI Charges
Unless someone is seriously injured or the accused has multiple DUI convictions, driving under the influence is a misdemeanor offense in Tennessee. That said, even a first offense can carry significant penalties such as incarceration, probation, fines, license suspension, restitution, and mandatory drug and alcohol treatment. On top of the legal implications, some ramifications last beyond a probation period, from increased insurance rates to difficulty obtaining employment.
Our defense lawyers look for holes in the prosecution’s case, including:
- The legality of the traffic stop
- Field testing procedures
- Calibration of BAC testing devices
Failing a field or breathalyzer test may seem like an immediate conviction, but that is not always the case. There are many instances where the officers conducting the tests did not perform them properly or did not calibrate the devices accordingly. Our seasoned attorneys understand how to navigate these situations to reduce or eliminate the charges.
Other Driving Violations
Driving under the influence is not the only driving-related offense that can put your license at risk and result in fines, incarceration, and other penalties. You may wonder why it makes sense to hire an attorney for a traffic violation, but your driving privileges impact your freedom and your future. Make sure that you stand up for your rights with aggressive counsel from Darnell & Darnell. Before pleading guilty or paying a fine, speak with a lawyer, no matter how minor the situation may seem.
Examples of traffic offenses we defend against include:
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Reckless driving
- Reckless endangerment
- Fleeing an officer
- Unlicensed drag racing
