Meet Our Team: Drug Recognition Experts - DUI Enforcement Leaders

When facing a DUI charge, the testimony of a drug recognition expert (DRE) can seem like an insurmountable hurdle. However, the science behind DRE assessments is not bulletproof and can be challenged. At Harris & Schroeder, we specialize in understanding the intricacies of DUI cases, especially those involving DREs. With an experienced team by your side, challenging the testimony of such experts becomes a viable option in your defense strategy.

DREs undergo a specific training program designed to help them identify signs of drug impairment in drivers. But human error, subjective judgment, and unreliable methods can lead to wrongful accusations. It's crucial to remember that DRE findings are not absolute. That's where we come in, providing valuable information and connecting individuals to attorneys who are skilled in discrediting questionable expert testimony.

If you or someone you know is grappling with a DUI charge that hinges on the word of a DRE, don't hesitate. Give us a call at (512) 828-7749 to discuss how we can assist in building a strong defense for your case.

Drug Recognition Experts receive extensive training to recognize drug impairment. This includes a detailed study of physiological responses to different types of drugs. However, just because someone is an expert does not mean their testimony is infallible. Defense attorneys can question the methods and conclusions of a DRE, suggesting the possibility of misinterpretation and bias.

Knowing the standard procedures and where they can falter plays a crucial role in contesting a DRE's testimony. A detailed approach can reveal how certain symptoms can be mistaken for drug impairment when they're actually due to medical conditions or legal substances.

The courtroom is a battleground of credibility, and the testimony of a DRE is no exception. Defense attorneys adept in DUI cases can scrutinize the alleged signs of impairment and contrast them with other possible explanations. It's a process of peeling back layers to find the truth, which can be complex and bewildering.

Cross-examination can expose weaknesses in the DRE's evaluation, especially when personal biases and subjective interpretations are called into question. With a clear understanding of the DRE's methodologies, qualified attorneys from Harris & Schroeder can turn the tide in your favor.

Field sobriety tests (FSTs) are commonly used by DREs to assess impairment. However, these tests are not definitive. Factors such as nervousness, fatigue, or physical conditions can affect their results. An astute defense lawyer can highlight these variables to suggest FSTs as inadequate indicators of drug impairment.

Our attorneys are experienced in questioning the reliability of FSTs and can demonstrate to the court how these assessments do not always equate to accurate measurements of a driver's ability to operate a vehicle safely.

In your defense against a DUI charge, a one-size-fits-all approach is not sufficient, especially when contesting the testimony of a DRE. Every detail matters, and that's where Harris & Schroeder's expertise shines through. Each case is unique, and our connected attorneys understand the importance of building a tailored strategy to present the strongest defense possible.

From questioning the training and experience of the DRE to delving into the scientific reliability of their assessments, our network of defense attorneys leaves no stone unturned. By customizing your defense, we can directly address the specific issues at play in your DUI case.

The DRE's written report is a critical document in DUI cases. It contains their observations and the basis for their conclusions. However, these reports can contain inconsistencies or be based on flawed assumptions. Our job is to dissect the report, line by line, to reveal any issues that may weaken the prosecution's case.

Careful analysis and critical thinking skills are imperative here. We cross-reference the report with other evidence to uncover gaps or suggest alternative reasons for the DRE's observations.

Technical defenses are another piece of the DUI defense puzzle. These are based on challenging the methods and equipment used in drug and alcohol testing. Our attorneys can question the calibration and maintenance of breathalyzers or the procedures used to collect and store blood and urine samples.

When the scientific validity of tests is called into question, it can introduce reasonable doubt into the minds of jurors. Harris & Schroeder attorneys understand how to leverage these technical aspects to build a strong defense.

The moments leading up to and during your arrest are pivotal. Sometimes the situation is not as black and white as it seems. By reconstructing the arrest scenario, we can provide context to the events and potentially unveil law enforcement errors or shortcomings in protocol that could invalidate the DRE's testimony.

Our thorough approach to scenario reconstruction ranges from examining dashcam footage to interviewing witnesses. Every detail can make a monumental difference in your case.
