DUI Defenses

Tallahassee DUI Lawyer

Many individuals make the mistake of assuming that their DUI case is hopeless. Fearing there is too much evidence proving guilt, they give up and accept that they will be charged & convicted of DUI. This is an unfortunate mistake that could easily be remedied by scheduling a consultation with an attorney at our firm. At the law offices of Jansen and Davis, P.A., our lawyers provide clients with the information they will need to overcome drunk driving charges. By having a skilled Tallahassee DUI lawyer to carefully examine the circumstances surrounding your case, ways may be found of defending you from these charges.

Some common DUI defense tactics used frequently in Tallahassee are:

  • Breath-testing machines: These machines are notoriously unreliable and are subject to a number of variables that can result in an inaccurate BAC reading. Breath testing machines must be operated by technicians who are properly trained to use these machines in order to get the best sample possible.
  • Police arrest techniques: Flashing lights, loud sirens, intense questioning, strange machines, and the overall threat of being arrested for a serious crime can intimidate anyone into saying and doing just about anything. This disorienting experience can often influence the outcome of a field sobriety test, and make an innocent person appear guilty.
  • Roadside conditions: A darkened road with cars rushing past is hardly the place to test someone’s poise and coordination, but police, nevertheless assert that confused and probably frightened people can maintain their composure in spite of these distractions. Uneven and wet roads and pavement, wind, bright and fast-moving headlights, and the ever-present fear of making a mistake can consign an innocent person to a night in jail
  • Outside chemical influences: There are hundreds of chemicals that can influence an alcohol testing machine. For example, smokers have a higher concentration of acetaldehyde, a chemical that can register on a breathalyzer but is not the result of recent alcohol consumption. Another variable is the presence of gastroesphogeal reflux disease (GERD), the side effect of which can make the defendant appear to have ingested alcohol when they have not.
