If you have been accused of driving under the influence (DUI
), the result of your breath test
or blood test
is likely to be a major part of the state's case against you. Even if your breath or blood test indicates that you were over the legal limit, you may still have strong defenses.

Weld County DUI Defense Attorneys Challenging Breath And Blood Tests
Our lawyers closely examine the evidence in every DUI case. For instance, when someone submits to a blood test, the police must provide a second, untested sample.Our law firm will work with our own experts to test this second sample. In some cases, the second sample will provide favorable evidence to our client.
Further, we will look at whether the police followed proper protocols with the breath and blood tests, including:
- Observing the driver for at least 20 minutes prior to the test to observe whether the defendant burped, hiccupped or vomited
- Ensuring the test was given within two hours of the arrest
- Looking at whether the Breathalyzer machine was properly calibrated and certified
