Basic Questions to Consider

When we investigate our clients DWI cases, we typically look to answer the following questions first before moving forward with a plan of action:

  2. Was there enough probable cause to constitute an officer pulling you over in the first place?
  3. Did the office remind you of our Miranda Rights and give you chance to call a lawyer?
  4. Is there any reason to believe that any samples collected during a blood or urine test were tampered with in any way? Were they properly handled while being process in the lab?
