Is it possible to avoid conviction for a drink driving offence?
The solicitors at Farleys have an in-depth knowledge of existing drink driving legislation; they will look for flaws in police procedure and attempt to discover whether there were any circumstances which forced you to drive whilst under the influence.
Typically, solicitors look for one of the following in their attempt to help their clients avoid a drink driving conviction or achieve a more lenient sentence:
- Was your drink spiked, causing you to drive whilst unknowingly under the influence of alcohol?
- Did an emergency situation leave you with no option but to drive?
- Did the police follow legal procedure when processing you following your arrest?
- Did the arresting office failed to take the blood or breath specimens in the manner required by law?
With representation from a solicitor with both knowledge and experience of drink driving cases, you are far more likely to receive a reduced penalty or to avoid conviction altogether. Drink driving penalties can be severe, so it is always best to have appropriate representation in court.
