If your test result was .15 or higher, if you refused the test, or if you have a prior conviction for a similar offense, the penalties for conviction will be higher and your case will be more complex to defend.
These are just the legal ramifications of a drunk-driving conviction. Loss of your job, higher insurance premiums and the embarrassment of having a DUI on your record may be of concern to you. With a conviction, you may also lose future employment opportunities and the ability to earn a living. Persons who have specialized licenses for their careers may lose those licenses for a lifetime, and others may find that a conviction for DUI prevents them from entering certain foreign countries, such as Canada.
At Callahan Law we want to help you avoid a DUI conviction. We are here for you, to answer your questions, to relieve your anxiety. We seek winning strategies and offer a creative, innovative and fresh approach to DUI cases. Our firm will also conduct an independent investigation to attempt to uncover facts favorable to your case.
Because we focus solely on DUI law, we have the specialized knowledge these cases require. A DUI case involves scientific evidence. Knowledge of the science of breath and blood testing, along with knowledge of the conditions that can affect the accuracy of a test, is vital to your defense. Lawyers that “dabble” in the field rarely have the time or means to acquire this specialized knowledge. If you needed brain surgery, would you go to your general practitioner for the operation? Or would you carefully select a surgeon accomplished in the field? Similarly, a DUI case can have a lasting impact on your life. At Callahan Law, we have the knowledge, skill and experience to handle your case.
