DUI cases can be much more complex than your average criminal case. Any good DUI attorney would tell you that the heart of a DUI case is usually the BAC machine's result. Therefore a good DUI attorney's job revolves around dealing with a very scientific instrument. Fortunately, what this means is that several things must be both working properly and certified as working properly in order for the result to "come in," or be admissible in a court before a jury. On each DUI case, our firm tracks down whether these "20 points of certification" are met, and if they are not, we make a legal motion before the court for the suppression of the results of the machine. Some of the motions we can make and results we can achieve on your case may involve the following:
- Invalid certification of officer
- Failure to properly adhere to 15 minute wait period for both tests
- Failure to read implied consent warnings
- Failure to properly read Miranda Rightst
- Failure of officer to appear when requested at Department of Licensing hearing
- Failure to check inside mouth 15 minutes before breath test
The above matters are just some of the issues that can result in major reductions of your case or winning the Department of Licensing hearing and preventing suspension. The Law Office of James Egan has in the past taken DUI charges and turned them into traffic tickets, and has defeated the Department of Licensing suspension proceeding so there is no license suspension. The only way to see whether this is possible for you is to contact us at (206) 749-0333 / 0353 and talk to us.
