Drug-Based OWI Lawyer Fighting For Your Rights
I am attorney Joseph Vogel, and I know what must be done to aggressively confront impaired driving charges on behalf of my clients, delivering the best possible results. I am successful in investigating the evidence against you and the circumstances under which you were arrested to ensure that your rights are protected and you are sheltered from the full brunt of sentencing.
Issues of search and seizure are often the focal point of a solid defense. While there are strict rules regarding how and why law enforcement can stop you, many police officers make mistakes that violate the individual’s constitutional rights. They must stop you for probable cause, or reasonable suspicion that you are under the influence. Excuses such as “issues with your license plate” or silly traffic violations can often cause the case to be thrown out. I will zealously advocate on your behalf to prosecutors and judges to ensure that your rights are protected.
If the stop results in your car being searched, I will also confront law enforcement on the reasons given for the search to ensure that your constitutional rights are not violated, resulting in further drug charges.
