The Necessity Of An Experienced And Effective Drunk Driving Defense
A DUI conviction will carry harsh consequences that are beyond losing your license, serving a sentence or enduring other penalties. It can also affect your ability to get to and from work, raise insurance rates and even impact student loans or scholarships. You also end up with a permanent mark on your record. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience in DUI defense and are skilled at minimizing these effects.
Established in 1959, the law firm of Cook & Connelly represents clients throughout the Southeast in DUI defense. Our group of dynamic and knowledgeable attorneys works to help our clients achieve the most favorable outcome in the most efficient manner. We advise our clients on strategies that look out for their best financial interests and well-being. Senior partner Bobby Lee Cook was even featured in an American Bar Association (ABA) article on DUI defense, titled “Lines of the Tribal Bar.”
Providing The Best DUI Defense Possible Is Always Our Top Priority
You need a strong defense in order to minimize the harsh consequences of a DUI charge. If convicted, the minimum fine is typically up to $1,000 or more for multiple offenders — and you could be facing jail time, community service and chemical dependency treatment or classes. Our DUI defense attorneys will take immediate action and stand up for your rights.
First-Time And Repeat Offender Defenses
For first-time offenders, there are a number of different defenses that we can explore. We may even be able to get the charge dismissed. Our attorneys will thoroughly examine the evidence and look at the following:
- The validity of the traffic stop: How was the stop conducted? Was there probable cause?
- Search of the vehicle: Was the search legal? Was the individual’s purse or body searched?
- Breathalyzer test: Was the test administered properly? Where and when was the test performed? Was the equipment properly maintained?
