Facts & Questions Regarding DUI in The State Of Colorado

Why are Colorado DUI laws so vigorously enforced?

There are tremendous societal pressures to make DUI arrests. MADD puts a great deal of pressure on the General Assembly, District Attorneys and Police Departments to get “tough” on people that drink and drive.

When should I hire a criminal defense attorney?

Immediately. Colorado law requires that a request for a hearing to keep your license must be made within 7 days from the date of your DUI arrest. If you fail to hire an attorney, and a hearing is not requested, you waive the opportunity to fight the license suspension. In short, the sooner you act the better chance I will have in providing the best criminal DUI defense you need.

I was arrested for DUI in Colorado. Is my license automatically suspended?

No. However, if you refused to provide a sample of your breath or blood, or if you provided a sample and they say it had an alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, and a hearing is not requested to fight the DUI suspension, it will be suspended.

Is there any benefit in requesting an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing?

Absolutely. We have been able to keep a number of our clients here in Colorado from ever having their license suspended. Even if your license is suspended, there may be other options for a limited driving privilege.

If my license is suspended for a DUI, can I get a license to drive to work?

Suspensions for DUI convictions or refusal/excessive BAC require a minimum period of at least a month where no driving is permitted for any reason. In order to resume driving legally, you must obtain a restricted license which requires an intoxilizer interlock device in ANY vehicle you drive and/or own.

I got a Colorado DUI and I have never been in trouble before. Am I going to jail?

Probably not. All cases are different, and I will have to look at your specific facts, but in most cases, I can successfully fight to keep you out of jail.

What part of your practice is devoted to defending Colorado DUI cases?

A substantial part of my practice involves handling DUI cases. Colorado DUI laws and techniques in defending DUI are constantly changing. What worked yesterday may not be the best approach today. It is important to find a lawyer who stays on top of the current Colorado DUI laws, trends, and what occurs in Courts everyday. I am such a lawyer. Also, I attend many Continuing Legal Education on DUI-specific seminars in addition to other criminal law areas of practice.

Are you familiar with the breath test machine, the Intoxilyzer 5000, used in Colorado?

Yes. Beginning in 2013, the State of Colorado began using the Intoxilizer 9000 for DUI breath testing, replacing the older Intoxilizer 5000. This new device has been plagued with problems ranging from the lack of basic certification/acceptance process in instituting the 9000 to a large number of reports of errors and inoperability. To the average criminal defense attorney, a breath test above the legal limit means "plead guilty" from the beginning, even though they will not tell you this until after the fee has been paid. To a true DUI defense attorney, a failed breath test in no way means you are guilty. It is important to understand how the breath test machine works, what can cause you to submit an erroneously high reading, the philosophy behind breath testing, and how alcohol is absorbed and eliminated from the body. This is often the difference between a guilty and Not Guilty verdict. If you are serious about being found Not Guilty, it is a must that your lawyer be very knowledgeable about alcohol and the human body and its effect on breath testing.

Can you get my DUI case dismissed?

It would be unethical for me to promise that I will get your DUI case dismissed, and the plain truth is that these types of cases are almost never dismissed outright. That being said, my goal will be to explore every option available at law, including getting your case dismissed if possible, to keep your record clean and prevent you from losing your freedom, dignity, and license to drive.

When you find yourself, a family member, or friend in this situation, you need an experienced and well-skilled attorney who practices only in the area of criminal defense law. For better or worse, criminal law has its own unique practice and methodology.

Please call and schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience, because I can help you through the unfamiliar territory of the criminal justice system. Because each case is different and special, I offer a free initial consultation where you and I can sit down and discuss the charges against you and what options are available to you. To assist you financially in paying any attorney fees, I offer flat rate fees and flexible payment plans that will allow you to hire me as your criminal defense attorney so that I can start immediately to protect your rights.
