A Strategic Defense to Fight Tough Penalties

Whether it's your first offense or your third, DUI penalties can be significantly damaging.

Along with penalties for refusing to take a breath test, you could face:

  • Up to 6 years in jail
  • Fines up to $15,000
  • License suspension for a minimum of 1 year
  • Mandatory interlock ignition device

Attorney Kurtz uses proven strategies and tactics to fight these charges and is especially successful at attacking the evidence surrounding a DUI case. While concrete evidence, such as chemical tests and your blood alcohol content (BAC), is a large part of such a conviction, it is possible for law enforcement to make mistakes.

Possible errors that can be made include a violation of rights in the initial police stop, incorrect administration of field sobriety tests, and errors in the arrest process. The breath testing unit may have been incorrectly calibrated, may have a history of false readings, or was not maintained properly. Your alcohol test may have been administered too late according to important laws.

It is important to remember that simply because your test results displayed an illegal BAC, you cannot be automatically convicted. The firm will do whatever it takes to craft a defense case that can win in court.

Implied Consent Laws and How They Apply to You

If you are lawfully arrested by a police officer who has probable cause to believe you were driving under the influence, you can be charged with implied consent violation if you refuse to take a breath, blood, or urine test to determine your blood alcohol content. The officer is allowed to choose which type of test is administered, and there may be more than one. The test(s) must be given as soon as possible after you were driving, because the issue in question is your BAC at the time of driving.

After making the arrest, the police officer must tell you that you are required by law to submit to chemical testing. Failure to do so can be raised as a defense on your behalf. Attorney Kurtz is an experienced Knoxville criminal defense attorney who can exhaustively examine every aspect of the investigation and your arrest, and aggressively attack every flaw or weakness in the prosecution's case against you.
