Aggressive Lawyer for Impaired Driving Charges in Colorado
Drunk driving charges are serious. With the ability to impact your reputation, your record, your future, and maybe even your freedom, the stakes are high. You need to respond accordingly.
The Law Offices of Mark S. Rubinstein, P.C. is a widely recognized criminal defense law firm serving the people of Colorado, including Vail, Avon, and all of Eagle County.
Headed by distinguished attorney Mark Rubinstein, our office is dedicated to the idea that, while everyone makes mistakes, you do not deserve to pay the government’s high prices for those mistakes.
The reality of today’s criminal justice system is that people often suffer far harsher sentences than they should – usually as a result of overaggressive prosecution, misguided defense, illegally obtained evidence, or an outright misunderstanding.
That is especially true with impaired driving charges, which are excessively prosecuted and frequently unfair.
Sobriety tests are notoriously flawed. Police in the field can make mistakes when conducting those tests too. The risk of error increases dramatically when suspected drug use is involved – after all, even the best tests are often unable to tell officers whether a drug is truly active in a driver’s system. False positives and exaggerated charges are all too common.
In fact, even drivers who fear they might have had too much to drink are often surprised to realize that the police violated their rights during the course of their interactions, or that the state simply can’t prove the impaired driving charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
Those accused of impaired driving in Avon, Vail, or anywhere in Eagle County, Colorado have a number of strong defenses available. But without an experienced and capable lawyer there to mount those defenses for you, there is a significant chance that you will not be successful in raising them on your own.
Indeed, studies show us that choosing the right lawyer – that is, an experienced and aggressive lawyer who is willing and able to devote substantial time to your case – can meaningfully impact the outcome of your case. It might just be the most important decision you ever make.
As a Vail, Avon, and Eagle County criminal defense attorney, Mark S. Rubinstein is ready to fight for you. He’ll fight to maintain your driver’s license, avoid spikes in your insurance premiums, preserve your reputation, minimize or eliminate any fines you might face, keep your record clean, and keep you out of jail.
You need an attorney who will aggressively pursue each of those goals. You can count on The Law Offices of Mark S. Rubinstein, P.C.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a common charge but also a very serious one. In a typical scenario, an officer will stop a driver after noticing behavior that might suggest inebriation – swerving, crossing a divider line, stopping abruptly, etc.
Of course, drivers might make these small errors for any number of reasons, but once officers suspect DUI, they typically insist on a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) test.
If you’re facing a DUI or DWI charge, you can count on a Vail, Avon, and Eagle County DUI defense attorney in our office to examine all of the evidence with a critical eye. We will pursue each and every avenue available to us, including these all-important inquiries:
- Did the police have probable cause to make the traffic stop?
- Did the officer violate your legal rights during the course of any stop, search, or arrest?
- Was the BAC test administered properly?
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID)
While Colorado has legalized the recreational use of marijuana, it is important to understand that driving under the influence of any drug – including marijuana – remains a serious crime. Police, then, can continue pursuing marijuana-related criminal charges.
As a citizen of the state of Colorado, you should be aware of the various factors at play when charged with driving under the influence of drugs, or DUID. Whether the officers involved in your case were poorly trained or just mistaken about the indicators that should be present with a driver impaired by drugs, there are plenty of potential errors that can occur on the part of law enforcement. Officers are taught to look for the following roadside observations from a driver under the influence of marijuana: divided attention, poor coordination, and a slowed internal clock.
Many law enforcement officers and courts will try to treat cases of driving under the influence of marijuana in the same manner and fashion as driving under the influence of alcohol. The responsibility falls on the defense to show the flaw in this sort of thinking. The defense can do this with better experts, a better understanding of the law, and a fundamental grasp of the science.
Indeed, driving under the influence of drugs prosecutions are on the rise. As the use of marijuana becomes more prevalent in the state of Colorado, police will be paying more attention to cases of driving under its influence. These are charges that attorney Mark S. Rubinstein is intensively active in defending against. He brings real experience with this specific crime to the table.
Our office offers a true command of:
- The latest detection technologies (and their imperfections)
- The most recent science on THC intoxication
- Other drugs and the problems police run into when testing for them
- Up-to-the-minute caselaw and the evolving rules of law
Additionally, Mr. Rubinstein is available to handle any other traffic offenses in Colorado, whether or not they involve allegations of alcohol or substance abuse.
He understands that traffic infractions are sometimes ticketed in conjunction with more serious DUI, DWI, or DUID charges.
As an experienced Vail, Avon, and Eagle County DUI defense attorney, Mark S. Rubinstein is prepared to handle all of the charges against you with aggressive passion. You won’t have to hire more than one lawyer just to address your traffic concerns.
