Thoroughly Investigating Criminal Charges
We fully review all aspects of the criminal charges, considering technical and factual defenses. For example, police need a reason to stop you for DUI. Once they stop you, they must have probable cause that you committed a crime before they can search your vehicle or your person. If the police made mistakes during the investigation, we can file a motion to suppress the evidence.
We will also fully evaluate the evidence against you, to determine whether a prosecutor will be able to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If the evidence doesn’t support a DUI conviction, we will aggressively defend your rights and interests.
However, we also take a pragmatic approach to legal representation. If the evidence does support a DUI conviction, our focus will be on mitigating the long-term consequences of the allegations.
Working with a criminal defense attorney doesn’t mean that you’ll avoid all consequences of a DUI. It does mean that your rights will be protected, and you won’t be steamrolled by the prosecutor.
Many people who are accused of driving under the influence in Delaware come from other states. We have extensive experience coordinating criminal defense representation from people who reside out-of-state. We are able to work effectively from a distance to reduce the number of trips someone accused of DUI has to make back to Delaware.
