DUI & IMPAIRED DRIVING

Police and other witness observations of your driving and physical condition can be challenged through effective cross-examination.

A critical aspect of Over .08 cases is whether police followed all the technical aspects of the law in taking your breath samples

OVER .08

Without a proper defence, this offence allows you to be convicted of a DUI just for being in your vehicle while impaired/over .08.

CARE & CONTROL

If you had difficulty understanding what to do, or difficulty providing a breath sample, we can help.

I was stopped for impaired driving in early October, and at 21, thought my life was over…. Now I can say with relief that all charges have been dropped and I am free of a criminal record.

Our Successful Cases
Our client drove through a checkstop, indicated he had some drinks that evening, and was noted to have glassy mirrored eyes and a smell of alcohol on his breath. He failed the roadside breath test, blew .140 on the evidentiary instrument, and was charged with impaired driving and driving over .08.
 
Once we were retained, we set the matter for trial and filed a motion alleging a violation of our client’s Constitutional rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Days before trial, we successfully negotiated the withdrawal of all charges.

…Despite the difficulty of my case and the new laws and procedures making it more difficult to get DUI charges withdrawn, we were successful and all charges were dropped…

If you've been charged with one of the following offences, you need a strong defence team to fight for you.

If you've been charged with one of the following offences, you need a strong defence team to fight for you.

Our client was initially observed by the police accelerating at a high rate of speed through a Walmart parking lot while on the wrong side of the road. Upon stopping, the police observed that his actions were slow and deliberate, his speech was slurred, and he admitted drinking earlier in the day. He failed the roadside breath test, blew .220 on the evidentiary instrument, and was charged with impaired driving, driving over .08, breaching his prior release, and some traffic tickets.
 
Once we were retained, we set a trial date immediately and filed a motion alleging a violation of our client’s Constitutional rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. A day before trial we successfully negotiated a stay of proceedings on all criminal charges in exchange for a guilty plea to one of the traffic tickets.
Impaired Driving and Over .08
Charges Stayed
R. v. J.C. [Calgary Provincial Court]
Our client was stopped by the RCMP after being observed driving erratically. He had an odour of alcohol on his breath, blood shot eyes, and admitted drinking beer earlier in the day. He failed the roadside breath test, provided further breath samples at the RCMP station, and was charged with impaired driving and driving over .08.
 
Once we were retained, we carefully reviewed the allegations and found what we believed to be a fatal flaw in the RCMP investigation. We contacted the Crown Prosecutor’s office immediately, and successfully negotiated a withdrawal of all charges on our client’s very first court appearance.
Impaired Driving and Over .08
Charges Withdrawn
R. v. M.B. [Canmore Provincial Court]
Our client was initially observed passed out in her vehicle in the middle of an intersection. A police helicopter found and followed our client (recording extensive erratic driving) until she was stopped and arrested.  She was observed to be extremely intoxicated, and was arrested for impaired driving. At the police station, she refused to provide breath samples, and was charged with impaired driving and refusal.
 
Although client did not have any defence to the impaired driving charge, we were able to negotiate a withdrawal of the refusal charge in exchange for a guilty plea to impaired driving. We then successfully convinced the court not to impose a criminal record on our client with her agreement to engage in treatment for her alcohol addiction.  
 
Refusal Withdrawn and Impaired Driving Curative Discharge Granted

Our client was found semi-conscious behind the wheel of a running motor vehicle. He was unsteady on his feet, confused, and smelled of alcohol. He was charged with impaired driving and driving over .08.
 
Once we were retained, we immediately pled not guilty and set the matter for trial. After a careful review of the police evidence package, we noticed that the police officer involved with the case swore a false document in the course of investigating our client. We used this information to damage the officer’s credibility in front of the Judge at the trial, which in turn resulted in the Judge acquitting our client of both charges.
 
Impaired Driving and Over .08
Charges Dismissed
R. v. S.S. [Calgary Provincial Court]
Our client was charged with impaired driving and driving over .08 after he was pulled over for speeding and failed a roadside alcohol screening test.
 
We immediately set his case for trial and reviewed the evidence against him. We identified several breaches of C.R.’s Constitutional Rights during the police investigation and filed a written complaint with the Crown Prosecutor and Judge. Shortly before trial we successfully persuaded the prosecutor that the breaches were so serious that dropping the charges was warranted.
