The penalties for a DUI conviction are harsh and lasting. With fines, jail time and loss of license on the line, it is important that you have the representation of a skilled DUI defense lawyer on your side. Just because you have been charged with a DUI or drunk driving offense does not mean that you will necessarily be convicted.
Located in Tennessee, The Law Office of Michael K. Williamson is successful in fighting the evidence that DUI charges are based upon and helping clients face minimized charges or have the charges thrown out entirely.
We will thoroughly review the details of the traffic stop. It is not uncommon for law enforcement to pull a driver over without probable cause, which is a violation of that individual's rights.
We will obtain tapes of the stop, as well as all documentation and evidence. Law enforcement regularly makes mistakes during DUI stops, and it is rare that the prosecution has an airtight case against a driver. We will find the inconsistencies and use them to attack the credibility of the stop.
We will also investigate the circumstances surrounding the field sobriety test. Was it administered correctly? Was there probable cause?
Based on the outcome of the field sobriety test, law enforcement determines if a Breathalyzer should be administered. We will closely analyze this sequence of events and find any irregular methods.
We will use the cracks in the prosecution's case to negotiate for a lesser penalty or to have the case thrown out. We are highly skilled in these negotiations and fighting a DUI, and can help you achieve the best possible outcome to your DUI charges.
