DWI/DUI Defense

If arrested for DWI or DUI, it is not hopeless. It is possible to prevail! Did the officer have a valid legal reason to stop you? Were the field sobriety tests done according to Federal guidelines? Was the chemical test analyzed properly? Do you have a medical condition that would mimic impairment or invalidate the blood alcohol reading?

Worried about your Driver’s License? There are actions that must be taken right away to protect your right to drive. In Arkansas, a DWI arrest results in two parallel actions – the criminal case and the administrative action to suspend your license which is conducted by the Department of Motor Vehicles. You have a right to appeal the suspension, but you only have seven days from receipt of the letter to request the hearing.

Were you arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs – illegal or prescription? Drugs other than alcohol are metabolized completely differently from alcohol, and the affects of different drug concentrations in the blood is very hard to predict. For example, Some sleeping medications have been shown to cause amnesia like symptoms where people taking these medications engage in activities while asleep that they do not remember when awake, such as eating or driving a car. This could be a defense for you.

Recent studies have shown that more and more women are being arrested for DUI than ever before. A woman’s unique physiology deals with alcohol differently than a man’s, and so presents defenses that aren’t available to men in their DUI cases. Some studies show that a woman’s alcohol metabolism is affected by the phase of the menstrual cycle and can also be affected by oral contraceptives. Other studies indicate that women have less alcohol metabolizing enzyme in their stomachs, as well as having smaller volumes of distribution.*
