Most criminal defense lawyers do not invest the time and training necessary to defend DWI cases successfully. An attorney needs a great deal of knowledge to discredit the Intoxilyzer 5000 and 9000 in court and to discredit the police officer’s opinion that a person was intoxicated. If the attorney does not understand how the Intoxilyzer works, he or she cannot point out the potential testing errors. In addition, if the attorney doesn’t know the field sobriety tests and the studies that back them up, he or she cannot successfully cross-examine the police officer who administered them.
You need an attorney devoted to this area of the law. Just as you wouldn’t hire a foot doctor to perform heart surgery, you shouldn’t hire a general criminal attorney to defend a DWI case.
