Experienced & Effective DUI Lawyers In Salt Lake City
Get The Best Defense When You Face Drunk Driving Charges
If you have been stopped while driving and have been charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated), it is important to remember that a charge does not automatically equal a conviction. With the help from a Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen DUI attorney, you can be sure to receive the highest representation for your drunk driving case.
The penalties for a DUI in Utah are among the strictest in the entire country. Even the lowest penalties of a first-time DUI conviction include alcohol/drug screenings, fines, license suspension, a court-mandated DUI education program and 48 hours of community service or jail time. Due to the training strategies of our attorney's within our Salt Lake City Law Firm, our goal is to achieve dismissed or reduced charges, minimal penalties or even expungement.
How We Defend A DUI Case
Once we accept a DUI case, our first step at Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen is to evaluate your situation and the evidence that is both for and against you. If we determine that there is strong evidence against you and that a trial would likely result in a guilty verdict, our DUI attorneys work to develop a plea bargain. A plea bargain is a compromise in which the defendant agrees to plead guilty or no contest, in exchange for an agreement to drop one or more charges or minimize the penalty.
If we are confident the evidence is in your favor or the prosecution’s case is unlikely to hold up in court, our goal is to take your case to trial to obtain a not-guilty verdict and fully dismiss charges. Signs of a potentially strong case include the following:
- Existence of one or more procedural flaws in regards to your initial arrest
- Error in the administration of a breathalyzer® or other field sobriety test
- The willingness of one or more expert witnesses to dispute a field sobriety test, chemical test or another evidentiary item in court
- Question of credibility with regard to the prosecution’s evidence, including how it was obtained
