Santa Fe DWI Defense Lawyer

As your SF criminal defense attorney, I will do everything possible to get the charges against you reduced or dropped. I have over 25 years of experience as a Santa Fe DWI lawyer, and it is my job to counter the prosecution’s evidence against you. I will do my own thorough investigation of the case to discover:

  • Whether the tests were valid
  • Whether procedure was followed in your arrest

Any misstep by law enforcement could be grounds for dismissal.
