Protecting Your Rights, Preserving Your Freedom In DUI Cases

A DUI conviction can result in the loss of your driver’s license, a fine, skyrocketing insurance rates and possibly a jail sentence. If you have been charged with DUI in Vermont, the stakes are high. You need proactive representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney.

I am attorney William V. Cristman, and I have more than 10 years of experience defending people accused of DUI (called DWI in some other states). I take a proactive approach to law by thoroughly investigating the facts and seeking the best possible result in every case.

Police can make mistakes while making arrests and conducting breath tests, so the fact that you have been charged with DUI does not necessarily mean you will be convicted. What you need is legal assistance from an experienced and determined criminal defense lawyer. To learn more about possible defense strategies I can provide regarding your case, contact my office today.

“I work tenaciously to protect my clients’ rights and freedom. I will do everything I can to obtain a positive outcome for you.” –
William Cristman

When defending you, I will examine every factual and legal issue in your case. I will review the circumstances of the stop, police affidavits, videos made at the roadside and in the processing room, and any other evidence, looking for answers to questions such as:

  • Did the police have reasonable suspicion to stop you?
  • Were the field sobriety tests properly conducted and did they really indicate that you may have been impaired?
  • Did the police have probable cause to arrest you?
  • Was the breath test machine working properly?
  • Did the operator of the machine follow proper test procedures?

There are many more factors that could lead to the dismissal of your DUI charge or a reduction to a nonalcohol driving offense. If a successful defense exists, I will do everything in my power to find it.

Don’t Take Risks With Your Future
