Shawn Overbey

Challenging the Evidence in Your DUI Case

Many people assume that a DWI/DUI charge is indefensible. This is simply not true. A properly pursued DUI case carries many technical requirements. An experienced attorney understands how to examine the charge and challenge the scientific evidence that law enforcement has collected.

It is not uncommon for a defense to center on the breath test itself.

  • Was the machine properly calibrated?
  • Was the officer properly trained on the machine's operation?
  • Was the machine properly cleaned and stored between uses?

We will aggressively pursue every legal avenue for the defense of your drunk driving charge, including any blood samples taken, the field sobriety tests or the validity of the traffic stop itself. Do not hesitate to contact Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. for the help and guidance that you need during this time.
