Federal DUI

Tennessee Federal DUI, DWI and BUI Defense Attorney and Knoxville, TN Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, the laws in Tennessee provide for severe penalties that expose you to the risk of jail, heavy fines, and suspension or revocation of your driver's license. Dependent upon your occupation, conviction of drunk driving can also lead to action against your professional license or other negative employment consequences, such as termination. For thorough and extremely individualized client service in defense of any Tennessee DUI charges, contact experienced Knoxville DUI defense attorney James A.H. Bell.

Our approach to the defense of DUI cases involves a careful evaluation of the conditions of your criminal arrest, whether or not it took place at a sobriety checkpoint or pursuant to a traffic stop, to see whether or not a motion to dismiss based on constitutional violations can lead to an early resolution of the case. If the charges seem to appear that they will continue to trial, we focus on independent examination of the toxicology report in order to challenge the blood alcohol concentration evidence against an individual. Our long experience with the development and presentation of evidence at trial can represent an important advantage to our clients.

A person faces a Tennessee crime indictment for driving under the influence or DUI when the person operates or has physical control of a motor vehicle on a road or street open to or frequented by the public in an impaired or intoxicated state under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  Tennessee law creates a presumption that any person with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater is presumed to be intoxicated.  To measure a person’s blood alcohol content, Tennessee law creates a presumption or implied consent that every driver on a street or road open to or frequented by the public agrees to give a breath alcohol, called a breathalyzer, or blood alcohol test.  Refusal of implied consent can result in a separate charge, risking revocation of one’s drivers license based on this charge alone.  Conviction of a DUI crime indictment can result in jail time; loss of driver’s license; fines and court costs; probation, and can have severe consequences beyond the criminal penalties, including increased insurance costs, job loss and preclusion from certain job, career and educational opportunities.

If you are confronting DUI charges, you need to know that someone is looking out for your best interests and making certain you take advantage of all the legal protections accessible to you. You have to have someone to help you choose whether you should challenge the results of a breath test, question the arresting officer's testimony, or request the judge dismiss all or  part of the case against you for any violations of your legal or constitutional rights.
