Building a Solid Defense Against Your DUI Charges

Steve Schanker has experience in every area of DUI defense law. He handles felony cases resulting from allegations of DUI involving an accident, as well DUI drug cases. His goal will be to help you fight for your freedom and preserve your privilege to drive.

At the driver's license hearing, it will be determined whether or not your license will be suspended. If you are arrested for driving while suspended, your suspension time could be increased and you could be subject to fines and jail time. For all of these incidents, you will need experienced and prepared legal support.

One of the main types of evidence that can be held against you in a DUI case is the results of your field sobriety test. If you believe the results of your test could be challenged, Attorney Schanker is ready to help you prove your case. He may be able to use these tests to actually build a solid defense on your behalf if errors took place by the officer conducting the tests.
