Breath and Blood Tests
Orlando DUI Attorneys
A chemical test (a breath test, blood test or possibly a urine test) will be an important part of your Orlando DUI case. These tests are conducted to determine the amount of alcohol and/or drugs in your system. Breath and blood tests are the most common types of chemical tests performed, so we will focus on those.
To our skilled Orlando DUI lawyers, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve failed a breath test or blood test and were subsequently charged with drunk driving. It doesn’t matter if you refused chemical testing altogether and are now facing license suspension by the Florida DHSMV. We understand how to build a defense strategy that effectively challenges blood or breath test results and therefore helps you avoid a DUI conviction. As skilled criminal defense lawyers, we understand that these tests are not always accurate. We know what errors to look for and what factors may adversely affect your test results.
For example, did you know that a breath test machine must be properly calibrated, per state standards? If it has not been calibrated your attorney may be able to use this to your advantage in challenging your breath test results. Additionally, either a breath test or blood test may be administered improperly, or an unqualified person may have administered the test. These too may be valid defenses. Finally, specific physical conditions may affect a person’s test results.
By reviewing all aspects of your particular case, an Orlando DUI attorney at Finebloom & Haenel can deliver the effective criminal defense representation you need in the face of your drunk driving charges – even if you took a breath test or blood test and showed a result well above the legal limit. We represent clients throughout Orlando and the surrounding areas in Florida and offer a free initial consultation to get you started.
