A Proven Criminal Defense Team

An adage relevant to DUI defense: leave no stone unturned

On Behalf of | Mar 23, 2016 | Drunk Driving Charges |

As we note on our website regarding drunk driving cases in Colorado, “no two cases are the same.”

Logically, how could they be?

For starters, every situation involving a police stop is replete with singular considerations. Those include the locale, the weather, the time of day, the police officer’s identity and disposition, the alleged behavior that prompted a stop, the identifying characteristics of the person being detained and questioned, the tests administered and, potentially, myriad other only-in-this-matter factors.

Given that soup of complexity, it is often the case that a proven criminal defense attorney who routinely investigates DUI-related matters and employs tailored strategies can find things in a particular case that argue for mitigation in its ultimate outcome.

We certainly know that to be true at the Denver law firm of Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C. In fact, we note on a website page focused upon DUI defense and strategies that “even the smallest issues” can play a huge role in influencing the course and disposition of a criminal prosecution commenced by state officials.

And those issues can range across a wide universe of considerations, which will be strategically and methodically explored by an experienced legal advocate.

Perhaps a police officer lacked a reasonable suspicion to even stop a motorist in the first place. If so, the state has a daunting constitutional hurdle focused upon probable cause under the Fourth Amendment to clear at the outset.

Perhaps an officer was inadequately trained to administer certain tests or testing equipment. Perhaps there were testing defects at a laboratory facility. A police officer’s objectivity during a stop and arrest might have been overtly lacking. The prosecution might have overcharged.

The bottom line: Such things are often on display after a motorist is stopped and alleged to have committed an unlawful act.

It is the job of a seasoned defense attorney to carefully sift through evidence and fashion a case that makes unstinting best efforts to promote a client’s best interests.

Every criminally charged individual has a legal right to such advocacy.
