We Fight The Charges And Defend Your Driving Privileges

Aldridge & Aldridge Law Firm knows how to pursue strategies that could get the charges against you dropped, reduced or defeated. Our attorneys will investigate the circumstances of your case carefully to determine whether the police may have acted improperly in a way that could lead to the dismissal of charges against you.

The U.S. Constitution protects drivers from unreasonable searches and seizures. A search occurs whenever a police officer examines your person, possessions, vehicle or home to obtain information. A search may be conducted only if an officer reasonably expects to find evidence of a crime. In the case of a DUI, the important questions are whether the officer had sufficient grounds to stop the driver's vehicle and sufficient grounds to administer sobriety tests.

Our Elizabethtown criminal defense attorneys will investigate your case and exploit any weakness in the police's actions. We also provide strong and effective representation when it comes to negotiating with the Kentucky State's Attorney's office. We often obtain results that satisfy our clients.

We Have Experience With Offense By Minors And Aggravating Circumstances

Conviction for drunk driving in Kentucky can result in severe criminal and administrative penalties. Your driver's license is likely to be suspended, plus you may be required to pay a fine, perform community service, submit to alcohol counseling and potentially spend time in jail. The penalties become even more severe if aggravating conditions were present at the time of your arrest. Aggravating circumstances include:

  • Driving 30 mph over the speed limit
  • Transporting a child under the age of 12
  • Driving in the wrong direction on a limited access highway
  • Causing a fatal or serious injury accident
  • Refusing a sobriety test
  • Having a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .15 percent or higher two hours after operating the vehicle

Our attorneys may be able to help if your DUI charges are aggravated. We may be able to have the aggravating conditions dropped through negotiations with the prosecutor. We also have experience representing juvenile DUI offenders.
