Federal DUI Defense Attorney

If you have been arrested and charged with a federal DUI, the laws in Tennessee provide for severe penalties that expose you to the risk of jail, heavy fines, and suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. Dependent upon your occupation, conviction of a federal drunk driving charge can also lead to action against your professional license or other negative employment consequences, such as termination. For thorough and extremely individualized client service in the defense of any Tennessee Federal DUI charges, contact an experienced federal DUI defense attorney.

Our approach to the defense of federal DUI cases is the same as a state case it involves a careful evaluation of the conditions of your criminal arrest, whether or not it took place at a sobriety checkpoint or pursuant to a traffic stop, to see whether or not a motion to dismiss based on constitutional violations can lead to an early resolution of the case. If the charges seem to appear that they will continue to trial, we focus on independent examination of the toxicology report in order to challenge the blood alcohol concentration evidence against an individual. Our long experience with the development and presentation of evidence at trial can represent an important advantage to our clients.

What makes it a Federal DUI?

Under state laws, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a crime. However, federal DUI laws also exist. If you are arrested for driving under the influence on federal property, you will most likely face federal DUI charges. A federal DUI occurs on federal property or property under federal jurisdiction. Federal DUIs most often occur in national parks (Great Smoky Mountains) or on military bases. However, this offense can also occur at post offices, airports, government compounds, national monuments, or even parking lots located on federal land.
