Goshen Breathalyzer Test Defense Lawyer

Challenging Breathalyzer Tests

In order to convict a person for DWI, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or above at the time of the arrest. The most common method of establishing BAC is the Breathalyzer test. The important fact to remember from a DWI defense standpoint is the Breathalyzer tests are not infallible.

Some DWI cases get thrown out because:

  • The Breathalyzer was malfunctioning or not properly calibrated
  • The police officer was not qualified to operate the Breathalyzer
  • The test results were tampered with

At the Law Office of Alan L. Joseph, I have extensive experience challenging DWI evidence, including breath and field sobriety tests, as well as DWI blood tests. With more than 30 years of experience as a criminal lawyer, I know how to obtain favorable results for clients charged with DWI/DUI in New York.

Field Sobriety Tests

Like Breathalyzer tests, the results of field sobriety tests are subject to scrutiny. Many of the elements of field sobriety tests are difficult to perform for healthy people. People who suffer from physical limitations may have extreme difficulty completing a field sobriety test even if they do not have any alcohol in their system.

If a police officer is not adequately trained, the test results may be skewed. I explore all potential defense strategies to ensure that my clients' rights are protected.
