The Difference a Professional Can Make

Arrange a consultation with an Ottawa impaired driving lawyer as your very first step. Take advantage of professional advice in navigating DUI law, and ensure that you don’t compromise your situation further by trying to handle the preliminary stages on your own.

The consequences are very real and can include:

DUI involves far more than "the presence of 80mg of alcohol for every 100ml of blood in the system". To get a full and accurate picture, numerous other factors also require investigation.

The following are areas that can often provide important context and help our Ottawa DUI Lawyers represent your case in a more detailed and well-rounded light.:

1. Mistake

When a person mistakenly assumes that the intoxication effect has worn off (and starts driving a vehicle).

2. Duress

Duress means committing an act against one’s will because of an unlawful compulsion (such as the threat of violence).

3. Necessity

On occasion, necessity causes our clients to drive under the influence. It's our duty to ensure this fact is brought to light, along with clearly communicated reasoning behind it.

4. Involuntary Intoxication

It is not uncommon for drinks to be spiked, making them stronger than anticipated. In this case, the person who consumes the beverage doesn’t know that they’re under the influence.

5. Improper Stop

Police officers are a valued and integral part of our community. They are not infallible though,and if improper protocols are applied, it is important for this to be identified and addressed.

6. Challenging the Accuracy of the Field Sobriety Test

Field sobriety tests are not perfect and if inaccurate or inconclusive results are present, a closer look is warranted.

7. Challenging the Breathalyzer Test

To properly defend an accused Ottawa drunk driver, our team will closely examine the process that was abided by in administering the breathanalyzer as well as the upkeep, maintenance, and calibration of the equipment used to ensure that the results are representative.

8. Challenging the Blood Test

We also investigate the integrity of the blood samples that are used to verify the roadside assessments. With overworked teams trying to handle testing, it is important to verify the process that was put into place when handling samples.
