Southaven And Memphis DUI Lawyer

DUI Defense Lawyer for Olive Branch and Horn Lake, MS

DUI. One of the few crimes on the books where you can be convicted and sent to jail just on one person’s opinion. It’s true. If the arresting police officer believes you are “under the influence,” even without forensic or scientific proof, off you go. And the penalties can be steep. Suspension of your driver’s license, incarceration, a permanent conviction, perhaps even losing your job.

What do they use to make the determination that you’re under the influence? Simple observations of your physical state, like how you stood, moved, or spoke. And if the police do have forensic proof, such as blood or breath tests, it’s often unreliable. Faulty breath machine calibrations, mishandled blood samples, and improperly administered field sobriety tests.

If you’ve been charged with DUI in Mississippi or Tennessee and wish to challenge your case, you’ve come to the right place. If you think you should admit guilt and take the consequences, you should probably look for another lawyer. I don’t just plead my clients guilty. I challenge the evidence. There’s just too much at stake not to. Look at it this way: if you elect to maintain your innocence and fight the case, you at least have a chance. If you simply plead guilty and go with what the government is telling you (yes, Mr. or Ms. Driver, you were drunk), you give yourself no chance.

If you’re serious about challenging your DUI arrest, spend some time on my website and learn about the laws, about my practice, and about my philosophy of DUI defense. I keep this site filled with the most in-depth, up-to-date information on Mississippi and Tennessee DUI laws. When you’re ready, contact me so we can get started on your defense.
