Smithville DUI Defense Lawyer
Getting a DUI is a frightening and anxiety-provoking situation because the consequences of a conviction are so serious. For example, in Tennessee, a DUI carries a minimum jail sentence, even for a first offense. If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, it is essential that you avoid a conviction, lest you be subject to:
- Heavy fines
- Jail time
- Driver’s license suspension
- Ignition interlock device installation
- Drug and alcohol treatment
Smithville DUI defense attorney Jeremy Trapp can fight to get your charges reduced or even dismissed, depending on the details of your arrest. If you’ve been charged with DUI, don’t presume that a conviction is a foregone conclusion. Call us at 615-988-4035 and make an appointment to discuss your options.
How To Fight A DUI
A DUI charge can be challenged on many fronts. That’s because police have to adhere to a relatively strict procedure when making a DUI arrest, and any lapse in that protocol can become a point of challenge. First, police must have “cause” to pull you over, which can involve observing you:
- Driving too slowly
- Driving erratically
A lawyer may also challenge a DUI if the arresting officer:
- Didn’t read you your rights
- Performed the field sobriety tests incorrectly
- Didn’t have sufficient cause to pull you over
