If I failed the breath or blood test is there any point to fighting my DWI?

Unfortunately, many people plead guilty to a drunk driving charge without realizing they have the opportunity to challenge the evidence and fight the allegations. No matter what evidence the court has against you, it is imperative that you speak with a knowledgeable defense lawyer before making any decisions about your case.

In many cases there are a variety of factors that could have seriously impacted the results of their chemical tests, and thus may have tainted the evidence. For instance, did the officer ensure you had not vomited or burped within 30 minutes of administering a breath test? Was the breath machine properly maintained and calibrated? Was your arm wiped with an alcohol swab before a blood sample was taken?

There are many issues that can affect the court's alleged evidence against you, so make sure you have all the facts you need to make an informed decision by talking with a skilled attorney.
