As in many of the other states, in North Dakota you will have two different charges to face when you are charged with a DUI/DWI. That is why it is so important to contact a North Dakota DUI/DWI lawyer if you find yourself in this predicament. It is a serious charge and you should not try to fight it alone. The two charges are a civil charge where the state is trying to revoke your license almost immediately and the other and most serious charge is a criminal one where you will have to go to trial.
A good North Dakota DUI/DWI lawyer knows there are many things that take place between the time you are stopped and the time you are released. He/She will examine every aspect of this to make sure that if you go to trial your lawyer can have a good defense built on your behalf. The lawyer knows what to look for where as you would overlook things that could be important in your defense, such as road conditions at the time of your arrest, if you were taking any type of medication at the time, and even if you had dental work done. All of this can affect the outcome of your trial. Dental work holds liquor in the mouth, which can result in a false reading on the Breathalyzer. A lawyer knows that the equipment that was used to charge you could have been faulty. There is no machine on the market that is 100% accurate. This can be used in your defense.
A North Dakota DUI/DWI lawyer will make sure that the proper procedure was taken from the time you were stopped. He/She will question the officer that stopped you to see if this procedure was taken and will also question the officer that gave you the Breathalyzer to make sure he/she was qualified to do this. Your best defense is contacting a lawyer to guide you through this difficult and stressful process.
