Skilled New York advocate challenges drunk driving charges

At the Law Firm of Marco Caviglia, I may be able to have charges thrown out by demonstrating that an equipment or procedural error resulted in an unfair charge. I will examine whether or not law enforcement followed proper protocol in regard to:

  • The stop — Police must be able to demonstrate that they pulled you over based on “reasonable suspicion” that you were acting in violation of the law.
  • The sobriety test — There are specific rules that police must follow when administering field sobriety tests, including when measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
  • The equipment — Breathalyzer machines have provided inaccurate results in the past, and their reliability can be questioned.
  • The arrest — For an arrest to be valid, an officer must inform you of your Miranda rights.
  • The evidence — Blood samples and other types of evidence must be stored in certain conditions in order to maintain their integrity.
