Results Driven DUI Defense Strategies

As experienced DUI defense attorneys, we have a vast depth of knowledge when it comes to potential factual and legal defense to South Kingstown DUI charges. Potential legal defenses that might be used in a DUI case include:

  1. Challenging the traffic stop: If the police did not have probable cause to stop your vehicle, any evidence obtained after the stop may be suppressed. If the initial stop was illegal, we may be able to secure a dismissal of the entire case.

  2. Challenging the field sobriety tests: Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) such as the walk-and-turn or the one-leg stand may be challenged if they were not administered properly, or if there were other factors that may have affected the results, such as poor lighting, uneven pavement, or the driver's physical condition.

  3. Challenging the breathalyzer test: Breathalyzer test results may be challenged if the machine was not properly calibrated, or if the officer who administered the test did not follow proper procedures.

  4. Challenging the blood test: Blood test results may be challenged if there were errors in the handling, storage, or analysis of the blood sample, or if there was a lack of proper consent or a warrant for the blood test.

  5. Involuntary Intoxication: If the defendant was unknowingly drugged or intoxicated without their knowledge, they may use the defense of involuntary intoxication.

  6. Rising Blood Alcohol Content: If the defendant consumed alcohol just prior to driving and their blood alcohol content was below the legal limit at the time of driving but increased while driving, they may argue that they were not under the influence at the time of driving.

It is essential to consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney who can assess the facts of your specific case and determine the most appropriate legal defenses to pursue.

"I got myself into a DUI situation May 2022. I refused a breathalyzer test for reasons I don't want to get into. So I was charged with DUI. Kensley Barrett was highly recommend to me by a friend. It was a very stressful time for me and he put me at ease & he's very responsive, understanding, always kept me informed & definitely knows what to do when it came to a case like mine!

Ken went above and beyond my expectations to solve my matter, which he did. AND I was able to keep my license! I am 100% grateful for his help I would recommend him to anyone…someone like Ken. I definitely would not have any other lawyer beside me in court. He also went to court on my behalf a couple of times and I didn't have to go. Thank you Mr Kensley Barrett."

- Former Rhode Island DUI Client Lori S. in 2022

"My family had a very emotional experience with our 18 year old who had charges which included failure to submit and DUI. We didn't know what to do or what to expect. After our first meeting with Matt we understood the process and potential outcomes. The best possible scenario that he described was exactly what happened. We are so appreciate of his personalization on our son's case. We highly recommend him."

- Former Rhode Island DUI Client Lisa B. in 2020

"From the very beginning I felt very comfortable moving forward with Marin and Barrett. I had the pleasure of being represented by Kensley. Without his help I'm not sure where I would be right now. I highly recommend Kensley if you find yourself needing legal help. I was arrested for a DUI out of state with a history in my own state. With his help I was able to get it dismissed and back on the road in 5 months. Thanks again Ken!"
