If you have been arrested for drunk driving, it is important that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. A criminal conviction can have lifelong consequences, making it important to take the necessary steps to protect your future. A failed sobriety test can be frightening as you consider possible consequences, but every Tennessee individual who has been arrested based upon a BAC reading above the legal limit has the legal right to seek assistance from a criminal defense attorney.
After a failed sobriety test, there are many things to consider for your defense. It is possible that there were no grounds for the initial traffic stop, the officer was not properly trained to use a Breathalyzer machine or other breath testing device or that there were technical problems with the sobriety tests administered. Our Tennessee lawyers have the experience to evaluate your case and determine if your rights were violated at any point.
With regard to any drunk driving charges brought against you, our team will fight to have them reduced or dropped. If that is not an option, we will help you decide the best way to move forward with your defense. This may include working on a plea deal with the prosecution and/or vigorously defending you in court.
If arrested after failing a BAC test, you could be facing jail time, steep fines and loss of driving privileges — but only if a criminal conviction is obtained by prosecutors in court. Any or all of the above consequences can have a devastating effect on your life, but you always have legal options. Find out how we will aggressively defend you against any criminal charges by seeking a case evaluation today.
