Experienced and Effective DUI Lawyers in Salt Lake City

Defense when you face drunk driving charges

If you have been stopped while driving and charged with DUI (driving under the influence) or DUI (driving while intoxicated), it is important to remember that a charge does not automatically equal a conviction. With help from a DUI attorney, you can be sure to receive top-notch representation in your drunk driving case.

It is no secret that the penalties for DUI in Utah are among the strictest in the entire country. Even the minimum consequences of a first-time DUI conviction include fines, license suspension, alcohol/drug screening, a court-mandated DUI education program and 48 hours of community service or jail time. But all of the attorneys from our DUI law firm in Salt Lake City are trained to use intelligent strategies that can achieve dismissed or reduced charges, minimal penalties or even expungement.

How we defend a DUI case

Our first step at Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen is to evaluate your case and the evidence in your favor and against you. If we determine that there is strong evidence against you and that a trial could likely result in a guilty verdict, our DUI attorneys work to develop a plea bargain — a compromise that may involve admission of some degree of guilt in exchange for a downgraded charge or minimized penalty.

If we feel confident that the evidence is strongly in your favor or that the prosecution’s case will fail to hold up in court, we take your case to trial with the goal of a not-guilty verdict and fully dismissed charges. Indications of a potentially strong case in your favor include the following:

  • Existence of one or more procedural flaws in regards to your initial arrest
  • Error in administration of a breathalyzer® or other field sobriety test
  • Willingness of one or more expert witnesses to dispute a field sobriety test, chemical test or other evidentiary item in court
  • Question of credibility with regard to the prosecution’s evidence, including how it was obtained
