DUI CHARGES ARE A SERIOUS OFFENSE IN MONTANA

DUI cases are especially complex because they require defense counsel to understand scientific, as well as legal processes.

DUI defense counsel must also have a strong working understanding of the operation of breath test equipment, hospital testing equipment, and instruments utilized by forensic laboratories in the process of testing for intoxicants. This ongoing education is obtained only by an attorney who regularly attends and participates in specialized DUI seminars and training. Such training is conducted by the NACDL (National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers), of which David is a member. 

If you were arrested and charged with driving under the influence, a conviction can result in harsh penalties:

  • Incarceration
  • Fines
  • License Suspension
  • Alcohol Treatments
  • Increased Insurance Rates
  • Vehicle Impoundment 

The legal issues related to DUI charges can be wide-ranging if they involve:

  • Search and Seizure
  • Due Process
  • Illegal Lnterrogation
  • Denial of Counsel
  • Evidentiary Issues

These legal issues intersect in a DUI case with scientific areas of expertise: 

  • Anatomy
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physiology
  • Toxicology
  • and pseudo-scientific areas, such as: field sobriety testing
