My daughter got pulled over for driving recklessly and speeding. The cops made her take a breathing test multiple times, and arrested her. She did not drink too much before this. Can I help her in any way legally?

You can help her by hiring a lawyer to fight her case. Cops exaggerate and the tests don't prove what the cops want them to prove.

    As a general response to your DUI Question: I am a criminal defense attorney with more than 17 years experience on DUI cases. If you would like to discuss your case, please contact me. Some important information- DMV Issues - If you have been served with a Notice of Revocation, then you have 7 days to request a hearing. Please do that immediately by going to your local DMV office, tell them you got a DUI and you want to request a hearing. They will give you a form. DO NOT REQUEST THE OFFICER. We can do that later if we choose to, but most often it means you will lose. The receipt DMV gives you allows you to drive until the day of the hearing. Request a copy of the Expressed Consent Packet. Evidence Issues - It would be valuable to immediately request all police reports, including all audio and video recordings from dash recorders, lapel recorders and police station recorders from the police agency that arrested you and the prosecution. Include in your written request a statement that you believe the audio and video recordings are ?material and exculpatory.? Make sure you get a copy of your request with the date, signature and name of the person that you give it to. Representation begins when client pays attorney an agreed upon retainer and returns a signed fee agreement.

    You can help her by paying for an experienced DUI (=OWI) lawyer to advise and represent her. Sometimes we can find some error or fault in the police investigation which can lead to a better deal, or even a dismissal of the charges.
