If you have been charged with a DUI, your friends or family may have advised you to simply plead guilty and move on. That could be a costly mistake. A DUI conviction may result in jail time, probation, court-ordered alcohol treatment and a significant suspension of your driving privileges.
As an experienced DUI defense attorney, I can provide a vigorous defense on your behalf. If retained to handle your case, I will ask key questions of the prosecution, including whether the police had sufficient cause to stop your vehicle and whether there was probable cause to make an arrest. As a person who has undergone the same training as police officers in conducting field sobriety tests, I have the knowledge to question whether the test was properly carried out. I will aggressively protect your rights.
Salt Lake City, Utah DUI laws are very technical. Even if you have a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, there are defenses I can raise that may result in a not guilty verdict. I may also be able to negotiate a plea to a lesser offense that will minimize the criminal and civil penalties.
