Unlawful DUI Stops by Police

Aggressive Defense from a Winning Denver DUI Lawyer

Are you facing DUI charges after an unlawful police stop? In order to make a lawful DUI arrest, law enforcement must have a valid reason to have pulled you over in the first place. Simple suspicion is not enough; the officer must have witnessed or received a valid report of a traffic violation of some kind.

Violations include:

  • Speeding
  • Weaving in and out of a lane
  • Running a red light

Unfortunately, there are situations where Denver drivers are pulled over for suspected DUI simply because they are leaving a bar at closing time, driving late at night on a holiday or for some other insufficient reason. In the face of an unlawful DUI stop, your best defense is an experienced attorney.

Challenging Police Stops for DUI

Often, the circumstances of a DUI stop will come down to the arresting officer's testimony against yours. What if the officer lies or is mistaken about your driving behavior? You may have been observing all traffic laws and yet were still pulled over.

An aggressive attorney can work to challenge the officer's testimony or may even be able to use evidence from the squad car's dash-mounted camera to show the officer is incorrect.

If you choose to work with The Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna, you will benefit from his:

  • 20+ years of criminal law experience
  • Successful track record
  • License to defend in municipal, county, state and federal court
  • Former experience as a cop and prosecutor

As an experienced attorney, attorney Christopher Cessna has dedicated his practice to representing clients throughout the Denver area who are facing drunk driving charges. This focus has enabled attorney Chris Cessna to receive formal training on the various aspects of a DUI case. This includes experience in understanding exactly what comprises an unlawful DUI stop and how to challenge these inside and outside of the criminal courtroom.

Undergoing a complete and thorough investigation of the initial stop and your drunk driving arrest may reveal a violation of your rights that would open the door to a successful defense strategy.
