If you have been arrested in Suffolk County New York for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DWI or DUI) you may assume that there is no way to avoid a conviction because of your performance on field sobriety tests or the outcome of a breath or blood test that law enforcement administered. While there may be evidence that the Suffolk County Police and District Attorney’s Office may try to use against you, there are also strategies that your Suffolk County criminal defense attorney can pursue to challenge such evidence and defend your charges. For example, what if the arresting officer pulled you over when you had not violated a traffic law of any kind, but only stopped you because you were leaving a bar? What if your field sobriety tests were not properly administered? What if the device used to conduct the breath test was not properly maintained or calibrated? What if the breath test was not properly administered? Your Suffolk County New York criminal defense lawyer will discuss with you all the possibilities that exist in your DWI or DUI case.

When tackling the complexity of a DUI or DWI case in Suffolk County NY, it's important to examine all the facts. While blood, breath and sobriety tests are often administered in Suffolk County NY, they can be faulty and flawed. When looking to build your defense, your Suffolk County criminal defense lawyer will leave no stone unturned in an attempt to bring you the optimum outcome. Your Suffolk County criminal defense attorney will examine such things as the accuracy of the breath test. In many cases, health issues can affect the final reading and give an inaccurate BAC level. In addition, other factors such as improper testing, equipment maintenance and calibration, flawed procedures, and outside influences can also come into play.

Sobriety tests are another device used by Suffolk County New York police officers to determine whether or not a driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired. However, these can often be challenged as they are designed in part to facilitate failure. An experienced DUI and DWI lawyer will look at these tests and question the subjectivity, accuracy, and credibility of the officer administering the tests. These are just a few issues that a DWI and DUI attorney may look at when building a defense against your drunk driving charges. You can rest assured that every detail will be examined to give you the strongest possible case in your DUI or DWI criminal defense in Suffolk County New York.
