DUI’s are one of the most difficult criminal cases to try in front of a jury.  I can’t understand why so many people believe that just because someone has a blood alcohol concentration of over .08, they are automatically guilty of DUI.  What people have to remember is – they have a constitutional right for the state to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they were impaired and had a blood alcohol concentration of over .08.  This means there must be absolutely zero doubt that a defendant was impaired or that the instrument to measure blood alcohol concentration – whether breath or blood – was in proper working condition and the result is accurate and reliable.

Many people charged and convicted of DUI tell me they hired an attorney and the attorney would not take their case to trial.  This is completely ridiculous.  As an accomplished and well-respected criminal defense attorney, I am chomping at the bit to take any and all cases to trial!  DUI case are winnable and must be tried.  If you have been arrested or charged with DUI and you are interviewing a lawyer, you must ask the following:

1. Explain the field sobriety tests;

2. Explain the breath/blood process;

3. Do you take DUI cases to trial.

If the attorney doesn’t know the first two questions and does not take DUI cases to trial – move on!  An attorney at Matthew Lopez Law is available 24/7 to discuss your DUI case.
