Do You Think The Police Officer Did Not Properly Administer the Standard Field Sobriety Tests?
If you think that the officer did not properly administer the field sobriety tests to you, contact one of our Aggravated DUI defense lawyers for a free initial consultation.
See our Field Sobriety Page for more information about the administration of field sobriety tests and how they can affect your case.
Did the Officer Have Probable Cause to Pull Your Vehicle Over?
One of the major issues in an Aggravated Driving Under the Influence case is why the officer pulled the vehicle over. Often times, the officer stops a vehicle because of an equipment violation such as a broken tail light. Our DUI Defense Attorneys are well versed in Aggravated (Felony) Driving Under the Influence cases and understand how police officers operate. We have successfully argued for our clients that there was no probable cause for the officer to pull the vehicle over and that there was no reason for the officer to reasonably believe that our client was under the influence.

Noll Law Office Results:
People v. K.T. (2015)
K.T. was charged with Driving on a Revoked License and his Fourth DUI. K.T. had three prior DUIS within the past 3 years. Our DUI Defense Attorney, Daniel Noll, was able to prevent a felony from being filed and was able to get the jail time substantially reduced (with work release) so that he can continue working.
People v. M.E. (2015)
M.E. was charged with his second DUI. It was alleged that he was asleep behind the wheel. M.E. blew above a .10 on the breathalyzer. M.E. was facing a three year statutory summary suspension and jail time. Daniel Noll was able to get the statutory summary suspension rescinded and the charge reduced to Reckless Driving. M.E. never lost his driving privileges.
People v. J.F. (2015)
J.F. was charged with her second DUI. It was alleged that she was in a one car accident. Our DUI defense attorney, Daniel Noll, was able to get her 3 year statutory summary suspension rescinded and she plead guilty to Reckless Driving. She never lost her driving privileges.
People v. C.D. (2014)
C.D. was charged with DUI. It was his second offense. He blew a .11 and performed all field sobriety tests. The officer claimed that C.D. failed all of the tests. Our client was extremely upset because if he lost his license, he would be unable to maintain his family business. Our office was able to successfully negotiate a rescission of C.D.’s drivers license and an amended charge of reckless driving so he can continue driving.
People v. N.M. (2012)
N.M. was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. It was his second offense so he was looking at a 3 year suspension of his driver’s license and jail time. Our office forced the state to concede that there was no reasonable articulable suspicion to believe that N.M. was under the influence of alcohol. The case was dismissed and he kept his driving privileges.
