My breath result was under .05, why was I arrested?

You can be arrested if a police officer had probable cause to believe you were under the influence of alcohol, chemical or controls substances to the extent your normal faculties were impaired.  If the only information the officer had was your low breath result, you should not have been arrested unless the officer can point to other evidence of impairment by controlled substances or chemical substances.  There are very few police officers who can do that, they are called Drug Recognition Experts or “DRE”.  Unless you exhibited serious signs of impairment or urine test positive for drugs, a breath result that low will rarely if ever result in a conviction for DUI.

Outstanding service from lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz.

Lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz provides outstanding service. I recently hired him for my case earlier this year and on the day of the trial it got dismissed with ease. Not only did that case get dismissed but my first case three years ago got dismissed as well with Grant by my side. Mr.Schwarz is a reliable lawyer who I would recommend to anybody having any sort of legal issues. Grant is an extremely caring lawyer who will answer all questions that you have and will respond to any e-mails, texts, or phone calls that you send his direction. I cannot forget to mention his confidence in the courtroom is amazing and it truly shows his greatness. Grant Ian Schwarz is the right lawyer for you. Thank you for everything Grant.
