As everyone is aware, DUI/DWI is one of the nation's biggest problems. Where other criminal acts usually involve individuals who choose a particular lifestyle, DUI/DWI hits men and women who have never even considered committing a crime. Given the fact that DUI/DWI charges happens to persons from all walks of life, it effects many others when a breadwinner is lost to jail, can no longer get certain jobs, and will be away from their children for long periods of time-DUI/DWI can and does ruin lives; both directly and indirectly.

In reality, DUI/DWI is a very easy to convict crime. The tools to measure intoxication and drug use are readily available and the symptoms are easy to spot for the trained police officer. However, there are technical errors that surround the process that can sometimes be used to lessen the charge or, in some cases, have the charge dismissed. The process of evaluating each case is similar but time consuming and often center on whether the individual's rights have been violated or if there was a breakdown in the various systems used to make the state's case..

At Tull & Marshall, An Association of Attorneys we evaluate each case from the beginning, when you sat down in the driver's seat, through the arrest and testing process. If a mistake is found that can be used to your advantage, we will use it. Short of that, we focus on how best to demonstrate to the court the defendant has taken all the steps the court would impose and more prior to your court date. We guide our clients through this process not only to demonstrate to the court that you are aware of your illegal actions but that you are serious about not allowing it to happen again.

Tull & Marshall, An Association of Attorneys is totally against anyone driving while impaired. However, we do not make judgments with regards to any individual who is so charged. It is our job to defend the individual to the fullest extent possible and to help that individual take specific actions between arrest and trial that are calculated to improve the individual's chances with the court and help ensure the individual will not put themselves into the position of being charged again.
