San Jose DWI/DUI Defense Attorneys

The Role of Motions in Defense against Drunk Driving Charges

Generally, a motion is a written application requesting the court to make a specified ruling or order. They are important tools that an experienced lawyer can use to strengthen your case or even have the charges against you dismissed depending on the facts of your case. At the law firm of Roberts & Elliott, LLP, our attorneys have extensive experience preparing and filing motions in DUI/DWI cases, and understand when the need to file them exists. We are prepared to do everything necessary to defend you.

For a consultation with an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer, contact us at 408-275-9800 today. Our office accepts all major credit cards and payment plans.

Some of the motions that are frequently used by our attorneys are:

  • Motions to Strike Prior Convictions
  • Motions to Suppress Evidence
  • Motions to Dismiss

With more than 25 years of experience, we understand how to look for opportunities to file motions on your behalf. We will thoroughly examine the validity of all of the evidence against you, and look for opportunities to suppress evidence that was obtained illegally. We will review any prior convictions to determine whether we should file a motion to have them stricken from the record. Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to file a motion to dismiss the DWI/DUI charges against you.

At Roberts & Elliott, LLP, we handle both felony and misdemeanor DUIs, and we understand the penalties that you are facing. From fines, to jail time, to loss of license, we take your case very seriously. For that reason, we look at all possible options to resolve your case quickly and efficiently and to strengthen your case. Filing motions plays a large role in what we do for you.
