Breaking Down the DUI for a Thorough Defense
A DUI case has many moving parts – the initial stop, the encounter between the officer and the defendant, field sobriety tests, and, finally, the chemical test. The smallest detail in a case can make the difference between a DUI conviction and a favorable outcome for the defendant. Meredith Ziebold thoroughly investigates every element of the DUI arrest to provide her clients the best avenues of DUI defense.
NHTSA Certified DUI Attorney
Meredith Ziebold has been certified by the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration in field sobriety testing. This certification required her to undergo the same training that police officers must complete in order to be qualified to administer standardized field sobriety tests. These field sobriety tests are not always administered correctly. The ability to recognize the mistakes officers make in administering the tests can be integral to defending a DUI case. Small details in a DUI investigation can make the difference between a conviction and a more favorable result. Meredith Ziebold has the skills and the training to give you the best defense possible to your DUI case.
Defending Against the State’s Chemical Test
If you are arrested for DUI, you will be asked to take either a breath or blood test. In the eyes of the State, DUI cases live or die by that blood or breath result. Prosecutors look no farther than the results of their chemical test in deciding whether to resolve a DUI case favorably or not. At the Law Office of Meredith Ziebold, your DUI case does not end with the number the State produces for your blood alcohol level. Many factors can influence the accuracy of that number, including health conditions of the defendant, errors in the administration or testing of the blood or breath, and errors in the machine doing the testing. Meredith Ziebold understands that the State is not always right and she has the knowledge and experience to investigate beyond the number produced by the State, including access to experts and private analysts to assist in the strongest DUI defense for your case.
