Defending Against DUI Charges

If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI), it is imperative to seek out experienced legal representation as soon as possible.

For representation you can trust, contact our Colorado Springs DUI defense lawyers at Anaya-McKedy, P.C. We are two former prosecutors who are now dedicated to defending people charged with drunk driving.

There have been changes to the DUI laws in Colorado. They may have an impact on your DUI case. Get in touch with our firm to discuss the new laws and how they may affect you.

Experienced DUI Defense Lawyers

Whether this is your first arrest on a drunk driving charge or whether you have several previous arrests for DUI, we can help. To learn more about our DUI defense practice, please review the following pages:

  • Felony DUI: Under a new law, some DUIs may come with felony charges and lasting consequences.
  • What's Going to Happen to My License? Most people have to be able to drive to work in order to earn a living. We will explain what we can do to help you keep your license or obtain a restricted license.
  • Am I Going to Jail? A conviction may result in a jail sentence, but it all depends on the charges, your prior record and the skill of your DUI defense attorney.
  • Field Sobriety Tests: Our lawyers are certified to administer field sobriety testing. They've taken the same training members of law enforcement do.
  • Basis for Traffic Stops: While handling your DUI case, we examine the reason why the officer stopped you in order to ensure your civil rights were not violated and proper police procedures were followed.
  • Blood/Breath Tests: Learn which one to take and whether or not you can refuse to take a blood or breath test.
  • The Science of DUI: Defense of drunk driving charges is based on science. Our lawyers understand the complex intersection of biochemistry and the law.
  • Military DUI: We are proud to represent members of the military in state and federal court in military DUI charges.
  • Out-of-State Representation: You may not have to come back to Colorado after a drunk driving arrest. Our representation includes us handling everything without you returning to Colorado.
  • Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID): Drugged driving cases are highly complex and require skill and aggression from your attorney.

An Aggressive Approach To DUI Charges

We take an aggressive approach to defending our clients because we know that these charges have extremely serious consequences that can negatively affect their lives, their relationships and their ability to earn a living.

Both of our attorneys are former prosecutors, providing a unique insight and knowledge of Colorado DUI laws. This enables us to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you and take action. We can help if you are charged with:

  • DUI (driving under the influence): Blood alcohol content of .08 or greater
  • DWAI (driving while ability impaired): BAC of at least .05 and other evidence of impairment
  • Underage drinking and driving (under 21, any alcohol use)
  • Vehicular assault/vehicular homicide
  • Refusal to submit to DUI testing
  • Driving under restraint after a previous DUI/DWAI

Conviction or pleading guilty to DUI/DWAI can mean mandatory jail time or prison, license suspension, fines and community service, as well as a criminal record, probation, alcohol assessment and treatment. We are proven trial lawyers who can challenge the traffic stop, the Breathalyzer/blood test results and the arresting officer's observations. We are also skilled negotiators who work hard to get favorable plea agreements that avoid the harshest sentences for our clients.
