Will I Beat a DWI Charge?

Posted By The Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski || 2-Apr-2014

One of the things that most people do not realize is that you can beat a DWI charge. Not even a failed field sobriety test or a breathalyzer test showing a BAC of 0.08% or more is enough to guarantee a conviction. Field sobriety tests are completely subjective. Breathalyzer tests and other types of breath or blood tests can also be inaccurate. An officer who is insufficiently trained, an improperly calibrated machine and many other external factors can all contribute to a false reading. In some cases, officers fail to follow the exact procedures necessary to obtain probable cause before placing an individual under arrest. If that happened in your case, I will be able to challenge the officer's actions and fight to have your case and any charges filed against you dismissed.

If you have been charged with DWI, you are going to want a zealous lawyer aggressively advocating on your behalf. I have more than a decade of experience with criminal law and DWI defense cases. Prior to starting my own defense practice, I spent time as a prosecutor with the District Attorney's office. My experience in the legal field has given me a rare insight into the justice system, one that very few other lawyers possess. I have tried and won countless criminal defense cases, including those involving DWIs, and I have a very high success rate.

In recognition of my accomplishments and my professional standards, I have received a BV Distinguished® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® and an Avvo Rating of 10.0 Superb. I am also honored to have been selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers® Rising Starsâ„  list for 5 consecutive years. If there was any error made during the arrest process, I will be unrelenting in my pursuit to find and uncover it.
