All DWI charges are serious. Convictions can cost you hundreds of dollars and limit your freedom. Even after you pay the fines and serve the time, your record can cost you job opportunities.
To protect your rights, liberty and future, you need expert DWI defense. You need the criminal defense attorneys at Patrick J. Martinez & Associates.
Our DWI Defense Experience
Patrick J. Martinez & Associates has focused our criminal defense practice on DWI defense for more than 20 years. We understand New Mexico statutes and case law that pertain to drunk driving arrests, and we know how to effectively fight conviction to keep your record clean. We have amassed a number of drunk driving resources to further serve our clients.
How We Build DWI Defense Cases
Every DWI case is different, but many of the same issues require further investigation. To begin building a strong DWI defense case, we investigate:
- The circumstances surrounding your arrest to determine if your fourth amendment rights were violated. We get police reports, videos and your account of the arrest to determine if reasonable suspicion and/or probable cause
- The methods and equipment used to administer blood alcohol tests to verify if results were accurate and/or admissible as evidence.
We take your presumed innocence seriously and fight to protect you from unlawful searches and seizures and unjust prosecution.
More than DWI Defense
In addition to aggressive DWI criminal defense, the attorneys at Patrick J. Martinez & Associates can also help you navigate the administrative side of DWI offenses. In order to recover your forfeited license and avoid license revocation, you must request a hearing with the New Mexico MVD. If your vehicle was seized upon your arrest, you must request a hearing with the City of Albuquerque, too. We will handle these administrative procedures at no extra charge when you retain us for your DWI criminal defense.
