DUI Defense Strategies
If you have recently been charged with DUI in the state of Minnesota, then you need to be made aware of your options and informed of the different creative defense strategies that are available. I, Attorney Anthony Grostyan, am intimately familiar with the possible DUI defense tactics and I know what it takes to build a compelling case for court. In order for you to be convicted, the arresting officer has a burden of proof to fulfill and a strict protocol to follow. When I take on a case I examine it from top to bottom and I will investigate into the events that led up to your arrest. The questions to ask yourself when building your defense would include:
- What occurred when the officer initially stopped your vehicle?
- Did the officer have probable cause to stop you or arrest you?
- Did the officer inform you of your right to an attorney?
- Were the tests they conducted lawful?
- Was your test refusal valid?
- Was your breath/blood testing done correctly?
- Was the equipment used for your testing properly maintained and recently calibrated?
These are all important things to think through as you form your solid defense. Many of these questions have led me to legitimate findings that ended up helping me win the case. My firm has successfully settled countless DUI/DWI cases where the charges were either dropped or reduced significantly down to alternative sentences. If you license has been revoked, I can work to have full driving privileges reinstated while your case is pending. My firm also deals with vehicle seizure and forfeiture in DUI related cases. I can work to successfully return your vehicle back into your ownership through court order. If you have been arrest of DWI/DUI, then you have a right to an attorney.
