Skilled Defense For Challenging A DUI
With 25 years of experience in criminal law, Nicholas George is well-versed in police procedures and the rights of the accused. He can examine the circumstances of a DUI arrest for opportunities to dismiss the charges, exclude evidence, negotiate a lesser punishment, or fight a conviction at trial.
There are many aspects of a DUI that can be challenged: reasonable suspicion for the traffic stop, administration of field sobriety tests, reading of Miranda rights and implied consent rights, administration of the breath test, calibration of the breathalyzer machine, chain of custody of evidence, and alternative explanations for the arresting officer’s observations and conclusions.
This thorough analysis applies to other traffic offenses. Nicholas George draws on extensive experience in the justice system to advocate vigorously for you. He can often get traffic violations reduced to an offense with lower fines and fewer points against your license.
Sometimes he is able to convince the prosecutor or the court to drop traffic tickets and misdemeanor traffic crimes entirely when the facts do not support the charge or the police have made critical errors.
