How Can I Fight My Charges?

In order to prove this charge the prosecutor must show that our client was (1) DUI, (2) driving recklessly in such a way as to create a high risk of death and (3) that the client's conduct caused the death of the other person. In order to defend against these charges we have our licensed private investigator conduct a thorough investigation of the accident. In these cases the police usually arrive after the accident has happened. Proceeding with what people tell them, they often accept false ideas and jump to conclusions.

We often have our investigator examine the accident site for clues that police missed and interview witnesses. We also look for evidence that our client was driving safely and it was the other person or possibly road conditions that caused the accident. Additionally we seek evidence that police violated alcohol screening procedures. This invalidates the conclusion that our client was DUI. We have the experience you need to defend against vehicular manslaughter charges.
