Thorough Investigation of DUI Charges
Kentucky has some of the most aggressive DUI laws in the United States. Knowing the law and how to investigate each aspect is imperative in your defense of a DUI charge. Dickman Law will thoroughly investigate to determine:
- Was the basis for the initial traffic stop legal?
- Were proper police procedures followed?
- Was the sobriety testing administered in a valid manner?
- Were there conflicting results from field sobriety tests, blood tests and Breathalyzer tests?
- Had the Breathalyzer been maintained in proper order?
After determining the answers to these questions, along with others, Dickman Law will analyze the results, develop the best defense for your individual case, negotiate diligently for the optimum settlement, or present your case before judge and jury if your circumstances necessitate a trial.
