Take Immediate Action If You Are Charged With A DUI/DWI

Drunk driving is a crime that needs serious defense. Prosecutors are coming down harder on individuals who are arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI). If you are facing DUI/DWI charges, you need to enlist a lawyer who knows how to fight these charges and has the experience needed to protect your rights.

With over 40 years of experience and as a board-certified trial specialist in criminal law, criminal defense attorney David C. Serna at Serna Law Offices is here to help you fight. With his office located in Albuquerque, Mr. Serna is highly knowledgeable of the laws that govern DUI/DWI cases in New Mexico. His goal is to see that charges against you are minimized or dismissed whenever possible to ensure that there as little impact to your life as needed.

Breathalyzer Tests Are Not Always Accurate

It has been shown in New Mexico and other states throughout the country that breathalyzer tests administered at the time of the traffic stop, as well as breath tests that are administered after arrest and at the police station, are often inaccurate. The devices are calibrated in a certain way that the makers of the devices consider proprietary, and as such, the validity cannot be determined by the investigation initiated by the defense team. As a result of this, Mr. Serna often challenges the accuracy of the breathalyzer test results, as well as the results of any field sobriety tests that were administered, since without the findings of these tests, the prosecution’s case against you may have little evidence left.
