If you have been accused of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicants — more commonly referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) — you’re probably feeling a bit of stress. Rest assured, this charge can be fought. There are many theories and defense strategies available for the experienced DUI/DWI lawyer. I am Timothy Denison, a Louisville drunk driving defense attorney with more than 32 years of experience. Getting people out of trouble is what I do best. Count on me to attack the DUI/DWI charges from the ground up, looking for every available opportunity to let you walk away without a drunk driving conviction on your record.
Many of the strategies I use in drunk driving cases are based on the fact that many police officers often make mistakes. In fact, in my experience, they make a lot of them, particularly when it comes to reasonable and articulable suspicion for pulling someone over for drunk driving and conducting field sobriety and breath tests. I’ll start by looking at the field sobriety tests. There is a specific way that these tests need to be conducted. More often than not, I have found that police officers do not conduct them the right way. Then there is the issue of the blood or breath test. How long between when you were pulled over was the test conducted? Was the machine even working right? What had you had to eat or drink before that time period? Were you taking medication at the time? What I find in my investigation often leads to evidence being suppressed or the DUI/DWI case being dismissed altogether. Even if that doesn’t happen, I usually find something that allows me to, at the bare minimum, negotiate down to a substantially lesser charge. In addition to defending adults, I also handle underage drunk driving charges.
