Challenging DUI Breathalyzer Results
You were pulled over for drunk driving, but you don't think you had that much to drink. Sometimes, the .08 percent blood alcohol (BAC) reading is just not right.
I am attorney Ernest Bauer, and I defend people charged with drunk driving, including challenging Breathalyzer and Intoxilyzer results.
I've seen the problems with the breath test.
I will investigate your DUI/DWI traffic stop and law enforcement's action to determine whether or not we can challenge the breath test or other chemical testing in your case. Depending on your circumstances, I may be able to argue that:
- The police officer did not use the breath testing machine correctly
- A condition you have (such as a lung or breathing problem) made the breath analysis results inaccurate or the breath sample too small
- Environmental or work-related causes increased the BAC percentage
- The Breathalyzer or Intoxilyzer is not a reliable test
There are many other challenges to the DUI Breathalyzer results that I may be able to bring in your particular circumstances.
Did you refuse to take the breath test?
Under Louisiana and federal law called "implied consent" law, you must submit to a breath test, chemical test or blood test when asked. The State can suspend your license for much longer periods of time. Yet, there are defenses to refusing to take a blood test. Talk to me to learn how I can help you.
I tell it to you straight.
I am not the kind of lawyer who makes promises I can't keep. I will be straight with you while I defend you. You need honest answers, and I will give them to you. If challenging the DUI Breathalyzer results is a defense in your case, I will go at it as aggressively and skillfully as I possibly can. If it isn't, I will let you know.
I will bring any defense available to you.
I will also explore other defenses to your DUI/DWI charges, including looking at flaws in the roadside sobriety test and the police officer's conduct.
Contact my criminal law office as soon as possible after you have been charged with drunk driving. I keep my cell phone on 24 hours a day for client emergencies. The sooner you call, the sooner we can start working together to build a strong defense to challenge your DUI Breathalyzer results.
