What if the Officer Did Everything Right?

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On February 24, 2018

 

Unfortunately, unless you have years of experience with DUI (driving under the influence of intoxicants) law in Oregon, there is absolutely no way to know if the officer did everything right with your case.  We get several clients who call in and say that they know they’re guilty.  They also think the officer did everything right. Reynolds Defense Firm respects that opinion, but kindly disagree.  Unless you’ve been through the system many many times or you’re an experienced DUI attorney, you don’t know what the officer is supposed to do. No officer is going to let you know that they really messed your case up, they’re going to give the impression that they are in control of everything that happened.

So you just don’t know if they did everything right. Did he or she? Probably, but not always. The job of your attorney is to go through all the details of your case that shows evidence against you.  We make sure that the officer did everything they were supposed to do, and in the proper sequence. That is part of your lawyer’s job, and we take pride in doing our job well.  You can visit the Reynolds Defense Firm website to learn all about what we specialize in.
