Case #: 2****t******
The client was involved in an accident. Police were called to the scene and noticed that the Client smelled of alcohol and had trouble balancing and had slurred speech. The officers did a DUI investigation and noted in their report that the Client performed the roadside sobriety exercises poorly. He was arrested for DUI and transported to jail where he provided a breath sample that was more than three times the legal limit. To make matters worse this was the second time within five years that the Client had received a DUI. The Firm was retained by the Client and immediately investigated the case. The Firm discovered that while the officers stated in their report that the Client did poorly on the sobriety exercises, there was no video evidence to support this claim. If fact, the video of the Client at the jail showed the Client looking very sober, despite giving a breath sample that was very high above the legal limit. It was then discovered that the client had diabetes. The Firm hired a medical expert that was willing to testify that the Client’s breath alcohol could have been under the legal limit based upon the Clients medical condition and the false positive for alcohol that it can cause. It took more than two years of work, but the Firm finally got the State to agree to dismiss the DUI.
