Nashville DUI Attorney
The State of Tennessee classifies Driving Under the Influence (DUI) as a misdemeanor however; a DUI case is more complicated and the punishment more severe than most other misdemeanor cases. It is one of the few misdemeanors that carries mandatory jail time with a conviction. This is why you need an attorney who has the utmost knowledge about DUI offenses in Nashville and the surrounding areas. One who just hasn’t represented clients in a DUI case. One who has also actually made DUI arrests and testified in court about those arrests. An attorney who had been thoroughly trained in administering field sobriety tests, has been certified in the operation of the Intoxilyzer (generically called a “breathalyzer” by the untrained) and who has been thoroughly trained in the effect alcohol and drugs has on your body. I am that attorney. I have been trained in all of these things and much more when it comes to DUI detection and arrest. I have made hundreds of DUI arrests and only one has been lost at trial. I have also many times declined to arrest someone for DUI because they did not meet arrest criteria. I can evaluate your case as very few people attorneys can: with the expertise of both an attorney and as a trained former law enforcement professional.
