Boise Field Sobriety Test Lawyer

In the vast majority of cases, when a DUI charge is contested, what is challenged is the field sobriety tests (FSTs). When there are grounds for such a challenge, Dowdy Law Office will press them vigorously.

Strategies For Contesting A DUI FST In Idaho

The first decision on which Dowdy Law Office will advise a DUI client is whether or not to contest the charge. If the best course of action is to settle, there is little point in challenging the FST. If the client insists on going to trial, an attack on the FST will be a major part of his or her case. A seasoned Boise field sobriety test attorney such as J. Scott Dowdy will review the video and the police report and advise whether or not to proceed to trial based on the answers to questions such as:

  • Did the police have reason to proceed?
  • Was there a lawful stop?
  • Were the tests done properly?
  • Were the machines within legal specifications?

In the vast majority of cases there will be no reasonable grounds to contest the stop, but if any emerge J. Scott Dowdy will pursue the litigation course vigorously, drawing on his experience as a prosecutor.
