When it comes to DUI cases, the reason for the stop can be crucial. Kristi Martel Law will thoroughly review and analyze the discovery in your case with you. We will review and analyze the circumstances that led to your stop, detention, investigation, and arrest, to help us determine what constitutional challenges may be used to suppress evidence in a DUI or other traffic case. If police did not have a valid reason to stop a vehicle, evidence may be able to be suppressed in your case. Whether reasonable suspicion or probable cause exists in a case is just one building block of crafting a solid defense strategy in your DUI or traffic case.
Once you are stopped, every moment and interaction with law enforcement can count. Did they interview you? Did they take you out of the car? Were you handcuffed? Were you read your Miranda rights? What statements and evidence were collected from you in your DUI case?
We work with our clients one-on-one to ensure you see everything in your case and analyze what law enforcement did – to ensure that it was done legally, and constitutionally. And if not, we aggressively pursue the best possible outcome for each case based on those issues.
