The Importance Of Breath Tests In DUI Cases

If you have tested positive to illegal levels of alcohol while driving, you assume that law enforcement officials have "busted" you, that they have enough evidence to prosecute you and that a conviction is practically assured. Right?

Wrong. A positive breath or blood test is just the beginning of a prosecutor's attempts to convict you for drunk driving. In the meantime, an experienced criminal defense attorney can fight to minimize your consequences, even before you get to your first court date. Contact our Denver law firm to find out how we can use our knowledge of DUI laws to help you.

Colorado Lawyers With the Experience in Breath and Blood Test Laws to Provide Your Best-Possible Defense

The attorneys of the law firm of Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C., have handled the defense of thousands of DUI cases built on evidence gained through breath test/Breathalyzer tests and blood alcohol tests. We can analyze your case and provide an aggressive defense. We can seek to have your case dismissed or changed from an alcohol driving offense to a simple traffic ticket based on a broad range of factors, including:

  • The condition of your mouth: An abscess, artificial teeth or other dental work can affect breath tests.
  • The machine used: We can demand, scrutinize and find fault with records regarding the maintenance and calibration of the Intoxilyzer 5000EN DUI testing breath machine, or of any other machine used.
  • Delays: If a test was conducted more than two hours after you were pulled over, it will be presumptively invalid.
  • Many, many other criteria that can play a role only an experienced team of criminal defense attorneys would and could think of.

Building a Unique Case for You

Each case has its own facts and must be handled individually. Whether you were charged with DUI or DWAI, we can attack witnesses' credibility, or work to locate and question other witnesses who will testify to your sobriety.

We can request so much information from the district attorney's office and make each district attorney work so hard to prosecute you that prosecutors will be inclined to negotiate in order to make the case "go away" rather than wanting to deal with our aggressive "bulldog" mentality. We can also attack police officers' departures from proper procedure before, during or after the arrest. For example, is their report and testimony identical to hundreds of arrests they've made? If yes, then is it likely that they are just writing up each report identical to the last just to save time? And what does that really say about their ability to recollect your specific stop, test and arrest?
