Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) cases are some of the most complex criminal cases to defend correctly. An effective DWI lawyer must understand the science and laws involving a DWI case. While the methods of DWI detection are sophisticated, they are far from perfect. Mr. Huffman is determined to find every piece of evidence that may be helpful to your case and protect you from the harsh consequences of a DWI conviction. Every detail about the DWI arrest will be investigated and analyzed and every constitutional right will be protected. Our firm is equipped to handle a DWI case from the very beginning, up until every appeal is exhausted. Getting your case expunged and erased from your record is our top priority.
Our pre-trial investigation is crucial to understand and analyze all the facts and circumstances involving the arrest. It may be critical to begin the investigation quickly to preserve any helpful evidence that may be lost or destroyed. Once all the evidence is gathered, a careful and diligent review is done to discover every possible advantage in the case.
DWI cases are often won at a pre-trial hearing. Our laws require police to follow strict procedures which, if not followed, could lead to evidence being questioned or even thrown out. Police must have enough evidence to stop a vehicle and to make an arrest. Police must follow strict procedures in conducting the field sobriety tests and the breath/blood tests. The proper maintenance of the breath/blood test machines must also be strictly followed. Our firm stays up to date on all DWI and constitutional laws and we have an intimate understanding of your rights so that you are protected.
While not every DWI goes to trial, every DWI case should be prepared as if it is going to trial. Defense lawyers do not have the power to dismiss a case, but our power lies with the ability to force a case to trial. Our law presumes innocence and requires that juries acquit cases that fall short of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. A prosecutor has little incentive to dismiss a case without the real threat of a trial from a proven trial attorney who understands the science behind DWI cases. Rick Huffman has tried over 60 cases to El Paso juries and has received “not guilty” verdicts on dozens of those cases.
You may have the right to appeal if you have already been convicted for DWI. Contact our office today as there are strict deadlines and format specifications you must follow. We are here to help.
