Law enforcement officials are required to have probable cause before pulling you over, before subjecting you to a blood or breath test, or before interrogating you. Most importantly, however, officers are required to have probable cause before placing you under arrest.
If you feel as though your rights have been violated because a police officer did not have enough evidence to pull you over, it will be crucial to your case to ask for professional help. Do not think that you can take on your case without legal representation. We can help you fight charges associated with an unlawful police stop, such as charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI).
Taking on any state or federal agency will require a significant amount of manpower, knowledge, resources, and tenacity, especially when the case becomes complex. At Holder Susan Slusher, LLC, our DWI attorneys in Columbia are ready to stand at your side and fight to prove that your constitutional rights have been violated.
Law enforcement officers are required to follow strict guidelines and laws when performing searches at sobriety checkpoints. Any deviation from proper procedure could mean that a serious breach of your rights has occurred.
If we are able to determine that an unlawful police stop at a sobriety checkpoint occurred, the evidence against you may be deemed inadmissible in court. In many cases, we have helped our clients get their charges reduced or completely dismissed because of police error that resulted in unlawful stops and wrongful arrests of innocent drivers.
Police work to serve and protect the public. When a law enforcement official has failed to serve and protect you and has instead caused you pain and suffering, you have the right to fight the charges against you. Make certain that you do so with the help of a trained legal professional who has the wherewithal and the tenacity to challenge the system.
