Many people think that if they test over the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) level, they will automatically be found guilty of DUI. What they don't realize is that there are many acknowledged issues with the breathalyzer that could cause inaccurate results. Because Mr. Jones has received intensive training on the breathalyzer, he can investigate the administration of your test to determine if there are any errors. If there were, he can move to suppress the results during your trial.

Hiring a DUI attorney to represent you against your drunk-driving charges is an investment in your future. If found guilty, the judge may order you to serve jail time, pay court costs and fines, perform community service, and complete mandatory substance abuse education classes. In addition, your driving privileges will be suspended for a period of time.
