DUI:If you’ve been charged with DUI (driving under the influence, or with a blood alcohol content over 0.08%), you face the loss of your driver’s license, a mandatory minimum jail sentence, and probation. Without legal representation, the repercussions from a single careless mistake may place your entire livelihood at risk. At Cooper Law Firm, we’re ready to investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest and can determine whether you have any viable defensesto the DUI charge.
These may include:
– Whether the traffic stop was legal;
– Whether the officer had reasonable suspicion or probable cause to administer a Breathalyzer;
– Whether the officer was properly trained to administer a field sobriety test;
– Whether any mistakes or machine malfunctions resulted in an inaccurate reading.
Domestic violence:Domestic violence refers to a wide range of crimes, including battery, assault, abuse, harassment, and stalking, and applies to those in relationships by blood or marriage, roommates, persons with whom you have children, and former spouses. A domestic violence conviction carries not just the possibility of a fine and jail time, but also the forfeiture of your right to carry a weapon, loss of parenting time, and even deportation, depending on your immigration status. For those reasons, it’s of the utmost importance that you’re represented by an experienced defense attorney if you’ve been charged with domestic violence.

Assault:There are numerous possible defenses to an assault charge, including self-defense, defense of others, defense of property, consent, or even mistaken identity. Assault cases are, by their very nature, fact-intensive. An experienced criminal defense attorney will study all of the circumstances of your case and analyze any factors that may mitigate or absolve your responsibility.
