Unlawful Police Stops Dichter Law Office - Leaders in DUI Defense

Unlawful Police Stops for DUI

Defense from an Experienced Lynnwood DUI Lawyer

Most people who are charged with DUI were originally pulled over for some other reason, usually a traffic violation such as speeding. In some cases, the officer's "probable cause" or reason for stopping you may not be warranted or even applicable. In such a case, if it can be shown that a law enforcement officer illegally stopped you, any other charges made against you, including DUI, must be dismissed.

For more information about unlawful police stops and DUI arrests, you should speak to a Lynnwood DUI attorney at the Dichter Law Office, PLLC.

It can be difficult to prove an illegal police stop and it will require the skill of an experienced DUI lawyer to be able to convince a judge or jury that it was arbitrary or unsubstantiated. We employ our own private investigator in each DUI case we defend to thoroughly investigate the circumstances, evidence, and witnesses, including the arresting officer. It can sometimes be shown that the officer in question has done the same thing before or that there is conflicting evidence from other witnesses at the scene. While it can be a difficult legal point to prove, it can also result in the complete dismissal of your DUI charge and case.

Law enforcement and prosecution must prove that they have sufficient cause to stop you and were not choosing you for some arbitrary reason or in some random fashion. In addition, once you are stopped, the officer only has a short amount of time to question you to establish if there is any evidence of DUI. We always recommend to clients that when and if they are stopped not to argue with the officer, but politely request to contact an attorney as soon as possible before answering any questions. The time to argue is with a lawyer at your side who can protect your rights and who understands the law. Call our offices if you have been arrested for DUI and feel law enforcement stopped you unlawfully.

Contact an experienced Lynnwood DUI lawyer for help fighting a DUI arrest if you feel you were stopped unlawfully by law enforcement.
