So often, people believe that if you have been taken into custody for drunken driving that there’s no chance of escaping the charge. This is not always the case, depending on how law enforcement officers handle an arrest. Sometimes mistakes are made and those mistakes can mean all the difference in whether a DUI charge sticks or whether it is reduced or dismissed.
A good and experienced and knowledgeable DUI defense attorney will want to file pretrial motions so that evidence against their client can be suppressed. A good attorney will never shrink from taking full advantage of potential mistakes may have been made by law enforcement officers in relation to DUI evidence. If such a motion to suppress is successful, a DUI case could be dismissed or the charges substantially reduced.
