Being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can have a significant impact on every aspect of a person’s life. Not only has there been a societal shift in how driving while intoxicated is viewed, there is a continuous push in Colorado to increase the punishments for driving under the influence. Because a DUI can affect your employment, family, future jobs and potentially result in jail, it is important that those charged with DUIs be represented by criminal defense attorneys who are familiar with the unique aspects of DUI defense.
The DUI attorneys at Aviso Law have experience litigating every aspect of DUI cases. From representing clients at DMV hearings and trial to litigating evidentiary issues in order suppress evidence, we aggressively represent you and your interests to achieve the best results. Whether our clients are charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving while ability impaired, our DUI lawyers at Aviso Law provide personalized representation to each and every client.
To be charged with a DUI, the person operating the vehicle must have a blood alcohol level (BAL) of .08% if over 21 and .02% if under 21. Despite that, it’s not uncommon for law enforcement officers to cite individuals with drunk driving without knowing the BAL. Due to the complexity of DUI charges, you shouldn’t attempt to handle situations like this on your own. Let the professionals at Aviso Law work for you, using their aggressive techniques and knowledge of the science behind DUI cases.
Driving While Ability Impaired, otherwise known in Colorado as DWAI, is when a driver operates a vehicle with a blood alcohol content between .05% and .079%. Despite those clearly defined percentages, Colorado’s drunk driving laws are more focused on impairment than blood alcohol content, meaning that you could be cited with a DWAI even if your BAL is below .05%. DWAI’s also carry serious consequences in terms of lengthy jail time and considerable fines.
You can trust the attorneys at Aviso Law to handle pretrial phases of DWAI proceedings and aggressively represent your interests in the courtroom. With our in-depth knowledge of Colorado’s drunk driving laws and goal of obtaining the best possible results for our clients, we at Aviso Law seek to provide clients with top-quality representation.
Driving Under the Impairment of Drugs
Since Colorado’s legalization of marijuana, there has been an increase in citations for Driving Under the Impairment of Drugs (DUI-D). The established limit for marijuana in the bloodstream is 5 nanograms, but it’s possible to be cited for less than this if a person is deemed too intoxicated to safely operate a vehicle. These rules are true for drivers under the influence of any drug, even prescription medication.
DUI-Ds are just as serious and just as complex as DUIs and require the same amount of legal acumen and up-to-date knowledge on Colorado drug laws. With proven success and considerable experience representing clients in these areas, the Aviso Law team is the obvious choice to help with DUI-D matters.
DUI on Military Bases
Being cited with a DUI on a military base is a different matter and can carry serious consequences because, in many instances, the federal government is prosecuting the case instead of the State of Colorado. At Aviso Law our backgrounds as military lawyers, combined with our experience representing clients charged with DUI, make us perfectly suited to handle this type of case and provide clients with top-quality representation.
