Strategic Defense Strategies Founded on Thorough Investigation

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, the first thing you should do is contact an experienced attorney who has a proven record of successfully representing people with DUI charges. At Rodriguez Law Firm, our San Diego DUI lawyer can build a strong case and a solid defense to protect your rights.

Our firm thoroughly investigates the circumstances of the arrest and the results of field sobriety tests to form the basis of a defense strategy. We strategically apply any discovered information at the most critical stages of DUI hearings as well as at appropriate stages during the ensuing criminal prosecution process.

Building Your Defense

There are many types of legal challenges that can be used in your defense. For instance, it could be argued that there was a lack of reasonable suspicion for a stop. Before law enforcement officials can make a DUI traffic stop, they must have sufficient reasonable suspicion that a crime has been or is being committed. If law enforcement officials do not have sufficient reasonable suspicion, they did not legally make the initial DUI traffic stop and any and all evidence obtained as a result of that unlawful detention is inadmissible in court.

Your attorney might also argue that the field sobriety test was inaccurate.After a person is suspected of drunk driving, he or she may be asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests. It is up to the police officer to decide if the suspect passes or fails these tests by following a specific procedure for administration and evaluation. However, a person can perform poorly during the field sobriety tests for many reasons other than intoxication.

Rather than alcohol or drug use, a poor test performance might be caused by:

  • Testing equipment that has not been properly maintained or calibrated, or that has a history of incorrectly reporting BAC levels
  • Medical conditions that would make it difficult to perform some of the physical tests
  • Uncomfortable shoes that can make it difficult to perform physical tests
  • Preexisting vision problems
  • Low blood sugar caused by diabetes
