DUI Defense

Different types of DUI defenses exist in which a capable defense attorney may challenge the case against you. Just because you are accused of a DUI doesn't mean you will be convicted. Newport Beach DUI defense attorney Scott Hughes can expose mistakes made by police officers in DUI cases. A police officer must have reasonable suspicion in pulling you over in the first place. He or she must also follow standard procedures in administering a breathalyzer test or field sobriety tests. Breathalyzer equipment must be properly maintained and in good working order to ensure an accurate reading. All of these issues may play a significant part in your defense.

That is why it is important that you seek legal assistance immediately after a DUI arrest so that your case can be investigated and your Newport Beach DUI defense lawyer can begin building an effective legal strategy on your behalf.
