breathalyzer test is one of the primary ways for an officer to establish probable cause
for placing an alleged drunk driver under arrest. Field sobriety tests
can also be used, however the Intoxilyzer 5000 is the breathalyzer device
officers currently use for the purpose of estimating a driver's blood
alcohol concentration (BAC) level. If you have been arrested in Savannah

DUI, based on the results of a breathalyzer test, you are going to need a
skilled DUI attorney vehemently fighting to protect your freedom and rights.

Breathalyzer tests and the Intoxilyzer 5000 are not without fault. These
types of machines can be prone to error, particularly when they are not
properly calibrated or operated by inexperienced personnel. As these machines
cannot determine the difference between the alcohol found in substances
such as mouth wash or cough syrup, and that found in alcoholic beverages,
an individual could be arrested due to a false positive test result. Attempting
to argue with an arresting officer or challenge your test results without
legal counsel is pointless.
Driving under the influence is a serious
criminal offense that has the potential for putting many innocent lives at risk. Officers
and prosecuting attorneys are not known for showing leniency in cases
involving DUI. Contrary to what some people may lead to you believe, the
results from a breathalyzer or breath & blood test will not guarantee
a conviction. Having an attorney, who you can trust to have your best
interests in mind, will significantly improve your chances of being able
to successfully challenge your test results and avoid charges being filed
