Lancaster & Athens Vehicular Homicide & Assault Lawyer
DILIGENT AND THOROUGH DEFENSE OF VEHICULAR HOMICIDE AND VEHICULAR ASSAULT
If you get into an accident while driving impaired and someone else gets injured or worse yet, dies, you may be charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide or Aggravated Vehicular Assault. These are serious felony charges and, if convicted, they carry mandatory prison time as well as lengthy (up to lifetime) driving license suspensions. Defense of these types of cases is both complex and technical. The defense requires both a defense to the OVI charge as well as the accusation that the intoxication was the proximate result of the accident. I have the experience, training and skill to help.
THE TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE YOU NEED, WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST
I have over 25 years experience in defending OVI charges. My OVI defense experience combined with my NHTSA certification in the administration of Field Sobriety Tests and allows me to effectively defend charges of Vehicular Homicide and Assault. I will assess and challenge the accusation that you were in fact under the influence. This may be in the form of a Motion to Suppress, an independent review of your performance on field sobriety tests or a challenge to the findings of a Breathalyzer. There may also be a question about the cause of the accident.
MARIJUANA OVI CASES
In recent years, I have handled several vehicular homicide cases where the client was charged with OVI even though the officer found they were not impaired at the time of the accident. This is because a test of my client's urine or blood revealed marijuana metabolite. Although my clients had smoked days prior they were not "high" or under the influence at the time of the accident. I am successful at defending these cases as I have an understanding of the pharmacology of marijuana as well as how to try these cases to a jury. Let my experience and training help you defeat these charges.
