Successful, Aggressive, Respected DUI Lawyers
If you are looking for a DUI attorney, our attorneys have represented thousands of persons on their first, second, third and even a twelfth charge of DUI. We've represented high profile clients, and are experienced handling the media. Most of our clients have had breath or blood alcohol tests anywhere from .01 to .40. Some have had no breath or blood test, others have refused the breath or blood test, or were alleged to be under the influence of drugs, including prescription drugs, marijuana, and/or a combination of alcohol and drugs.
Some of our clients were stopped for weaving, and others for driving with bad tabs, driving too fast, too slow, without headlights, making an improper turn, the notorious bad license plate light and, of course, everything in between. We have represented persons who couldn't walk a straight line, others who had difficulty balancing on one foot, many who slurred though the ABCs, missed touching their finger to their nose and/or were simply unable to tap their thumb to each individual finger.

Experience and Reputation Matter
While most of our DUI and Physical Control cases do not go to trial, to effectively negotiate with the prosecution, your DUI Criminal Defense Attorney needs to pose a real threat in the courtroom. The attorneys at Stewart MacNichols Harmell, Inc., P.S. have won DUI jury trials for clients with no breath test, clients who refused the breath test, and clients with breath tests over three times the legal limit. We have also won trials for clients alleged to be under the influence of drugs, including marijuana and prescription drugs.
Many of the firms that claim to be experienced DUI defense attorneys have little or no actual trial experience. Cases are set for trial but, presumably as a result of fear or a lack of self-confidence, clients are convinced to plead guilty to the charges as their cases approach trial. Prosecutors are aware when lawyers and law firms are unwilling to take their cases to trial and this can impact those attorney's effectiveness during pre-trial negotiations.
