How to Beat a DUI by Challenging the Chemical Test

Arrested for drunk driving? Good news. You haven't been convicted yet. By retaining an experienced DUI defense attorney, you could beat your charges. There are many DUI defense strategies that attorneys use, but one of the most effective is challenging the chemical test.

Chemical tests, such as the breath test and the blood test, evaluate the ratio of alcohol to blood in a person's body to arrive at a BAC (short for blood alcohol concentration). This is the primary form of evidence that DUI convictions are based on.

Any evidence that proves to be questionable, inaccurate, or unlawfully obtained must be thrown out. There are strict guidelines for chemical testing procedures and chemical testing machines. Among other things, these tests:

  • Most be consistently monitored and calibrated for accuracy
  • Must be used with the proper procedures
  • Must only be administered after a lawful arrest

One of the advantages of retaining The Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry for your defense is that our attorneys are certified to operate and instruct on how to use these types of tests as well as field sobriety tests such as the walk-and-turn or horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN).

Ronald L. Moore of the firm is Board Certified in Forensic Science by the American Board of Criminalistics. He is a trained technician for certain types of testing instruments, such as the Alco-Sensor IV. Prior to joining our firm, he was a Senior Forensic Scientist at the Orange County Crime Lab.

We have the resources and knowledge necessary to contest the results of your breath or blood test. Without this evidence, your DUI charges will not have much to stand on. In many cases, we are able to get clients' charges dismissed this way.
