DUI And Vehicular Crimes
Not all traffic violations are minor. Some are criminal matters that can carry with them serious consequences. You can enlist an experienced lawyer to stand up for you and help you fight these charges.
At Pearson & Paris, P.C., we have more than 50 years of combined experience. Our top criminal defense attorney is also a former senior prosecutor who knows how the opposition approaches these cases. That knowledge is leveraged to defend people like you against criminal traffic violations.
Investigation Can Be Critical
Criminal traffic violations include misdemeanors and felonies such as:
- DWAI/DUI and DUID
- Challenging field sobriety tests
- Challenging blood test evidence
- Challenging breath test evidence
- DUI penalties
- Vehicular homicide
- Vehicular assault
- Careless driving causing injury or death
- Motor vehicle theft
- Speed contests and speed exhibitions
- Vehicular eluding
- Hit-and-run/leaving the scene of an accident
- Underage DUI
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
These are serious crimes that frequently require thorough investigation. Results could hinge on seemingly minor details. For example, a minor detail may show that the driver accused of careless driving causing death was not actually driving carelessly, but that the accident could not have been prevented by any action taken by the driver. Our attorneys understand how these investigations must be conducted. When necessary, we work with forensic investigators, traffic reconstruction experts and other experts to gather all of the critical facts. We know how to gather the facts necessary to build strong defense strategies.
Traffic Violations Involving Drugs And Alcohol
If drugs or alcohol are involved in accidents that resulted in injury or death, the charges typically become felonies. Even a first offender could spend significant time in prison. Our lawyers take great care to thoroughly review these matters to make certain that we do everything possible to defend you.
