If you were arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Denton County, Texas, then you need to make sure that you have a defense attorney on your side as soon as possible after the arrest. The sooner you involve a legal professional in your case, the better chances you could stand at avoiding conviction and penalties for the arrest.
Backed by more than a decade of defense experience, the law offices of Derek A. Adame, Attorney at Law is more than prepared to help you defend yourself against the charges that have been made against you. We are skilled in our investigative practice and in the creative defense strategies that we can use on your behalf.
Our aggressive approach involves evaluating a number of different circumstances involved in your case and creating an effective defense for you in court. Examples of arguments that can be made in your defense include:
- Objective symptoms of intoxication such as slurred speech, red / watery eyes, or a flushed face cannot be taken as conclusive indicators of intoxication.
- Field Sobriety Tests such as the walk-and-turn test, the horizontal gaze nystagmus test, and the one-leg stand test are not accurate measurements of impairment.
- The law enforcement officer who pulled you over and made the arrest did not follow proper procedures when doing so.
- Breath tests can yield false positive readings if not calibrated correctly.
These are only some of the many defenses that might be right for you. When you work with Derek A. Adame, Attorney at Law, we will work to find the method of defense that is best-suited for your case. Contact us today for a free evaluation of your case.
