DUI Cases Can Carry Severe Penalties in Kansas

The consequences of a DUI conviction can be extremely severe. Your personal and professional reputation, your job and your family life can be heavily impacted. You owe it to yourself to have your case reviewed by a true legal professional that has the skill and insight to evaluate your case and determine what can be done with regard to your defense.

When it comes to traffic offenses, driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is certainly one of the most harshly penalized. Attempting to operate a vehicle after consuming alcohol is extremely dangerous due to the driver's reduced awareness and reflexes. Nevertheless, countless people step behind the wheel every day while intoxicated. According to the Kansas Department of Transportation statistics, 64,682 accidents occurred in Kansas in the year 2019, and 2149 of the wrecks involved alcohol.

In an attempt to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by drunk driving, law enforcement is often quick to make arrests and press charges for DUI. This means that it is possible to be falsely accused by an overzealous officer.

We carefully review every detail of your case, from the police stop through to the testing procedures, police reports and any video of the event. We know how to find the errors, flaws and holes in the case to bring to the attention of the court. With fast, effective defense work, there are cases that can be dismissed. The burden of proof in any criminal charge lies with the prosecutor. As trial lawyers, we know what can be done to present a case for the defense, fight for a case dismissal, seek alternatives to jail time, a reduced sentence, and all the other potential advantages. Take advantage of our experience and commitment to our clients, and contact our Johnson County DUI lawyers before your case moves further through the system.
