DUI, DWI, and Driving Under the Influence
The lawyers at the The Law Office of Gunn Law Group have been extremely successful at helping clients resume their everyday lives after DUI arrests. We know that mistakes happen. Not only to people who may have had a little too much to drink and then decide to drive, but also the police officers who make DWI arrests. A lot is at stake when you or someone you know is arrested and charged with driving impaired so it is critical that you get the help of a DUI lawyer who knows the intricacies of the legal system and can give you the best chance of getting your drunk driving arrest charges dismissed or reduced. The defense team at The Law Office of Gunn Law Group is well versed in the legal system and has often successfully defended drunken driving arrests.
Impaired driving laws & DUI charges are not so clear-cut
Drunk driving law states that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle, while having the care or control over that vehicle when one’s ability to operate that vehicle is impaired by alcohol. DWI laws ensure that if you are taken into custody on suspicion that you are driving drunk a qualified technician is required to take samples of the accused driver’s breath into a breathalyzer device known as the Intoxylizer 5000C. The test is administered to determine the level of milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood. DUI laws dictate that a charge of over .08 be given if the driver’s breath sample registers over the legal allowable limit of .08 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood. If the driver fails to provide a sample of their breath into the intoxylizer device either at the police holding facility or at the roadside into a certified breath-screening device a charge of refusal will result.
Charges of drunk driving, impaired driving, over .08, DUI and DWI and refusal are very technical and require the police and technicians to obey strict procedures and conduct rules. There is so much room for error that even if the officer’s investigation holds up, the results obtained from a roadside screening device and/or the breath machine can be challenged and proven wrong. At the The Law Office of Gunn Law Group our goal is to uncover errors that may exclude as much of the police and prosecutor’s evidence as possible. There are a variety of ways to challenge accuracy, and we know which ones have worked best. The DUI defense team at the The Law Office of Gunn Law Group is skilled at scrutinizing the evidence and then identifying errors that may exclude significant amounts of evidence from the prosecution’s case.
You can’t afford to lose your licence
If a person loses their license or has their driving privileges suspended due to impaired driving laws or drinking and driving accidents, the way they go about their daily lives could change drastically due to one or more of the following:
- A permanent criminal record
- Termination of Employment and Career Issues
- Loss of License
- Inhibited ability to work or care for children
- Mandatory Treatment Programs, DUI Classes
- DUI car insurance increases
- Immigration Status Issues
If you or someone you know and love has been arrested and charged with a DUI or causing a drunk driving accident, life as you know it can drastically alter if a DUI lawyer who has a proven track record in Alberta courts is not chosen. Don’t let this happen.
