Developing an Effective Defense Strategy
The outcome of your case depends largely on the skills and determination of your defense lawyer. At The Law Firm of Richard Bloch, P.C., we practice exclusively in criminal defense.
Attorney Bloch has handled complicated DUI cases involving repeat DUI charges and vehicular manslaughter. He is prepared to dig into the evidence against you and investigate allegations of drinking and driving. Mr. Bloch will look for errors in police procedures or violations of your constitutional rights based on specific factors, including:
- Unlawful traffic stop — Police officers must have a valid reason to pull someone over for suspicion of drunk driving, such as swerving between lanes or driving unusually slow. If the traffic stop was illegal, we will fight for the charges to be dismissed.
- Field sobriety tests — Law enforcement uses field sobriety tests to evaluate individuals suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol. Unfortunately, field sobriety tests tend to measure individuals' mental and physical capabilities instead of their blood alcohol content. We review squad car videos to understand if police officers followed proper procedure, as well as the validly of the test results.
- Breathalyzer test results — Breathalyzers are used to determine if individuals were over the legal limit, but the machines are subject to human and mechanical errors. We aggressively challenge breathalyzer test results if calibrations were inaccurate or if police officers were poorly trained to operate the machines.
Seeking to Mitigate DUI Penalties
If convicted of a DUI, you could face jail time, large fines and a revocation of your driver's license. Attorney Bloch is a skilled negotiator prepared to seek a reduced sentence. He often consults therapists to help support claims that you will likely benefit from alcohol treatment in exchange for less jail time.
