DWI Child Under 15
At the Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we defend people against a wide range of DWI or DUI charges, including charges for drunk driving with a child in the car. These cases often come about due to overzealous policing and can be defended like any DWI charges. We are able to poke holes in the prosecution's case by demonstrating such factors as:
- Lack of probable cause
- Lack of reasonable suspicion to pull the car over
- Illegal police checkpoints
- Improper use of breath test machines
- Faulty or poorly maintained equipment
- Improper execution of field sobriety tests
Attorney Jed Silverman and our highly qualified staff understand that many alleged child-under-15 DWI offenders and other first-time offenders have never had contact with the criminal justice system and have no prior criminal record. We have seen many of these cases where a family had gone out for dinner and mom and dad had a glass or two of wine. A family whose parent is serving every day of a 180-day DWI sentence is going to suffer significant upheaval and inflict unnecessary trauma on the children. We will put our skill and experience to work for you, to seek dismissal of these charges.
