Initial DUI Stops

At Cochran and Chhabra, LLC, we will carefully evaluate the circumstances of the initial stop. The process by which a person can legally be arrested on DUI and drunk driving charges is specific and ordered so as not to infringe upon a person's constitutional rights. Law enforcement may make critical errors during the stop that can cause all evidence from the stop to be thrown out.

We will meticulously review the dash cam and other accounts of the event to find instances where mistakes were made. This includes:

  • Whether you were pulled over on valid grounds. Police must have probable cause to pull you over. This can be anything from erratic driving to a burnt out headlight. This can also include a tip from another individual that the driver may be drunk.
  • Asking you to take a field sobriety test in less than optimal conditions. Physical requests, such as walking a straight line or standing on one foot, can be hindered by inclement weather, physical conditions or improper footwear.
  • Administering a Breathalyzer test with inaccurate equipment. A Breathalyzer must be carefully calibrated and cleaned, and its administrator must be thoroughly trained in taking an accurate sample. Many times this evidence can be suppressed.

There are additional search and seizure issues that may arise during the course of the stop, and we will evaluate to find instances where your rights may have been violated.
