DUI And Traffic Offenses Can Be Serious Business
People often fail to fight DUIs and traffic offenses. They may mistakenly believe that they cannot win against the state evidence. They may believe that hiring an attorney is throwing good money after bad. But, the reality is that there are many ways to effectively defend against DUI charges and traffic offenses.
Decades Of Experience Protecting People’ Driver’s Licenses
At the Law Offices of Thomas J. Donnelly in Clearwater, we understand how these charges work and how to mount a defense even when you think the odds are against you. Tom Donnelly has more than 35 years of experience building strong defenses for those facing DUI charges or traffic offenses. Let us protect your driver’s license.
Strategies For A Successful Defense Against DUI Charges
Even if you submitted to a blood alcohol content test, we can work to suppress breath, blood or urine tests if it is possible to show that the evidence was wrongfully obtained or the testing equipment was faulty.
We have been able to get the charges dismissed on the basis that the breath device was not properly calibrated. In others, we have successfully challenged the initial traffic stop itself by asserting that the authorities did not have a sufficiently reasonable suspicion to make the stop.
The Benefits Of Fighting Traffic Offenses
You might think that a charge of driving without a license or of speeding is not worth the time, effort and expense in fighting it. However, merely paying the fine associated with the charge will often not be the most cost-effective thing to do. When you do so, you are admitting guilt, and thus your car insurance premiums are likely to increase substantially for years. In addition, you could lose your driving privileges based on points accumulation.
We have successfully defended against these types of charges and have helped people maintain their driving privileges, allowing them to continue going to work.
