Marshall County DUI Defense Attorney
I am attorney Don Thomas, a Marshall County DUI defense lawyer committed to professionally and aggressively defending your legal rights. If you are facing DUI or drug charges in western Kentucky, I can provide the tenacious and thorough representation that you need.
Former Prosecutor With Decades Of Criminal Law Experience
With more than 29 years of experience, I have served as both a Marshall County attorney and a district judge. Now, as a criminal defense lawyer, I can draw upon my prior experience to anticipate and counter your opposition’s legal strategies. In addition, I am extremely comfortable at trial and relish the opportunity to defend you in court, if necessary.
Driving Under The Influence (DUI) Defense
In Kentucky, you may be arrested for DUI per se if your blood alcohol level registers above .08 percent in a blood or breath test. In such cases, I thoroughly investigate the facts and ask the important questions in your defense such as:
- Was the Breathalyzer machine calibrated and maintained properly?
- Was your breath or blood test performed properly?
- Was the person who administered the test properly trained?
- Did the police follow proper procedures during your stop and arrest?
My western Kentucky law firm can also assist you with all issues involving the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license and charges stemming from driving with a suspended license.
You Have The Right To An Attorney
No matter whether you were arrested on a DUI charge or drug crime charge, remember that two of your greatest rights are the right to remain silent and the right to contact an attorney. You should also be aware that treating law enforcement officers with absolute respect can go a long way toward ensuring the most positive outcome possible under the facts of your case.
