Reasons to Fight DUI Charges

If you’ve been charged with DUI, never plead guilty. Talk to a good Massachusetts DUI Attorney and discover the real reasons to fight DUI charges.

A charge is not a conviction and a good DUI lawyer such as Ed Sharkansky can help you beat the charges. Police make mistakes in administering field sobriety tests and the results may be scientifically invalid. In court, officers often admit that these tests may not be accurate. As a former prosecutor, Ed Sharkansky understands the limitations of these devices and how the data is interpreted under the law. The experience of a competent, former attorney can make a big difference in the sucess of your DUI case.

If you have refused to perform field sobriety tests or if you refused to take a breath test, that fact will not be used against you in court. It won’t be mentioned at all in court.

If you lose your case, you could be facing severe fines, loss of driving privileges, loss of employment, higher insurance rates, and could go to jail. You may not be able to travel outside the country. If you lose, in most cases, you won’t be any worse off if you plead guilty. The courts are emotional about drunk driving and little tolerance is shown despite your plea. The prosecutor’s job is to get a conviction.

If you win your case, you’ll save a lot of money in fines, and having to endure alcohol abuse prevention programs and assessments.

Make the decision to hire Ed Sharkansky to be your DUI lawyer and you’ll stand a fighting chance in court.
