DUI Aggressive Lawyer

When it comes to DUI charges, an aggressive defense is a must. If convicted, you face a range of life-changing penalties that will impact you legally, financially, and personally. An attorney can help mitigate the charges against you, which will then result in reduced sentencing.

For the last 25 years, I’ve provided Albuquerque residents with an aggressive defense against a variety of criminal charges. My name is Angela Arellanes and my firm Angela Arellanes Law has extensive experience with DUIs, including misdemeanor, felony, and aggravated charges.

How I Can Help You Defend Against DUI Charges

Part of an aggressive legal defense is knowing what to look for, and the circumstances surrounding your case can be quite useful for building a dependable defense. I’ll look for:

  • Improper Field Sobriety Testing – Field sobriety testing is subject to misinterpretation. For example, people with medical conditions that impact mobility or balance may fail one-leg stand or walk and turn testing. Police officers may also misinterpret results due to lack of training.
  • Problems with Breath Testing Devices – In order for breathalyzers to return accurate results, they must be maintained correctly. If law enforcement officials fail to follow maintenance instructions in device manuals or use the machine incorrectly, the results from breath testing can sometimes be called into question.
  • Violations of Your Civil Rights – During an arrest, you must be informed of your Miranda rights, which state you have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law, you have the right to an attorney, and if you can’t afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Police must also treat you humanely while you’re in their custody and must not subject you to “cruel or unusual” punishments.
