Drunk driving is a serious crime. The decision to operate a vehicle while under the influence can have irreversible, and sometimes fatal, consequences. The attorneys at GBSR understand the severity of the charge, but also recognize that there are times when law enforcement personnel act inappropriately or fail to follow the proper protocol. If you feel as if your constitutional rights have been compromised, then you should speak to a criminal law attorney about your options.
The following questions may be asked to help determine the validity of your claim:
- Was there a valid reason for the officer to pull you over?
- Did the officer have reasonable grounds to believe that you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
- Did the officer perform a valid roadside field sobriety test?
- Was the Breathalyzer machine properly calibrated and in good working order?
If your rights have been violated, then our legal team will work to have your charges reduced or dismissed.
Reckless driving charges encompass a broad range of offenses including speeding, racing another vehicle, and driving too fast for conditions. If you’re facing a reckless driving charge, contact the criminal law experts at GBSR Attorneys, Roanoke’s most reputable legal team.
