Seth A. Blum, Partner
If you’ve been charged with DWI or Driving While Impaired, it’s important for you to take control of your situation. At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, we can help you do just that. The faster we can sit down and discuss your case together, the more details you will likely recall. And in DWI cases, sometimes even the smallest details count. Since 1998 the attorneys at Kurtz & Blum, PLLC have been scouring the facts surrounding their clients’ DWIs with an unwavering focus on the tiniest of details that might help our clients. At the same time we have vigilantly kept up with an ever changing legal landscape.
The reasons why you were stopped by the police, as well as their justification for arresting you, are the first issues that we will examine together. Over the past 20 years my partner and I have meticulously followed the appellate decisions surrounding reasonable articulable suspicion, that is the justification for the police stopping you, and probable cause, which is the legal reason why the officer claims they were within their authority to arrest you. Under our constitution, each and every one of us has a right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure and it is this guaranty that prevents the police from being able to simply pull people over whenever they choose.
Howard A. Kurtz, Partner
Beyond the legal issues presented by the facts surrounding why you were pulled over and arrested, we’ve also stayed on top of the changes in the rules of evidence that determine what a prosecutor can and can’t introduce at trial against you. Though this kind of legal understanding may seem basic, the law changes like the wind and unless you are on top of your game, you could easily miss some factual or legal nuance that could end up being the difference between a conviction and an acquittal.
In addition to evaluating the merits of your case, we can also help get you back on the road quickly. Even though you haven’t been convicted of anything, you’ve already had your license revoked for 30 days. In most cases we’ll be able to get you a limited driving privilege after 10.
At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, we have been guiding our clients through some very tough situations for well over a decade. After we discuss the details of your case together and after we have answered all of your questions, we will jointly formulate the best course of action for you. We will explain how much it will cost and how we can best help you to accomplish your goals. We will arm you with information so that you will have peace of mind knowing that there will be no surprises. The faster we get started the faster we can get this behind you. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
