If you are arrested for drunk driving, you should begin building your defense as soon as possible. An experienced Milwaukee DUI attorney will be able to closely examine the facts of your case and determine what the best defense is for your case, as well as advise immediate action that might help your case such as enrolling in drunk driving school. Determining any of the following can greatly aid your chances of a successful defense:
- The stop, the arrest, or the breath test results are invalid.
- The field sobriety tests and/or any statements can be suppressed.
- Miranda rights or implied consent warnings were not read.
- You were not properly observed for 15 minutes by an adequately trained officer before the breath test.
An essential part of developing your case is staying organized. Determine who might be a potential witness, including anyone who was in the car when you were stopped, the people you called after you were pulled over or when you were in jail, or those who were with you before the stop. Then, obtain contact information for the witnesses and a relative or close friend of each witness. Ensure that you keep all of the papers related to your case in one place.
