When you are flagged down for DUI/OWI, you will, in all likelihood, be tested for blood alcohol content (BAC). Breathalyzers and blood draws are used; with the latter obtainable generally with a search warrant if you refuse a breathalyzer test or the test generates inconclusive data. While blood testing is deemed more accurate than a breathalyzer test, it can be disputed as part of your defense. Lawyers in Indianapolis, such as Eric L. Risk, Attorney At Law, will know when a blood draw or a blood test result may be held in dispute.

Facing a DUI (driving under the influence) charge on your own isn’t exactly not allowed; after all, you’re free to decide for yourself. If you’re a regular civilian with very little knowledge of the law, however, hiring lawyers to represent you in a DUI case in Indianapolis will gain better results. Here are the reasons why. You need someone who knows the laws inside out. Aside from your inadequate knowledge of the law, you’re also not familiar with court proceedings, especially if your case goes to trial. In addition, every state has its own laws and penalties for DUI-related crimes, which you may not know and you may not be equipped to prove that you’re innocent.
