Our Denver DUI attorneys at Fife Luneau, P.C. have seen thousands of DUI, traffic, and criminal cases throughout our careers. With our intentional focus on driving under the influence (DUI) defenses, we have become the firm locals trust after they are pulled over. Even newcomers to Denver or Colorado know of us due to our reputation for securing incredible case results against challenging odds.
A recent impressive case result came from People v J.M. Within this case, our client — whose identity will remain respectfully private — was charged with a DUI and driving while ability impaired (DWAI) in Denver County. If convicted, they could lose their driver’s license for an extended period of time, pay high fines to the state, and possibly spend months or longer in jail.
The arresting police officer noted that our client was allegedly having trouble driving in a single lane when they were pulled over. Upon speaking with our client, they reportedly exhibited slurred speech, compromised balance, and bloodshot or watery eyes. The strong scent of alcohol also apparently permeated the air as our client failed field sobriety tests.
All of the evidence might look bad, but our team at Fife Luneau, P.C. knows that even the strongest evidence has holes in it. We are well-versed in various methods of challenging prosecutorial and criminal evidence. From disputing the police’s decision to pull over our client in the first place to delegitimizing supposedly-accurate laboratory blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test results, we are efficient at shutting down the opposition.
In the end, People v J.M. ended in an acquittal for both the DUI and DWAI charges. Had our client gone to another DUI defense firm, he might have been pressured to take a plea deal. Thanks to our legal experience and knowledge, we were able to see a better path for our client and follow it to the end.

(Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Each case is different. Many of our cases have also been won on pretrial motions to suppress and/or dismiss as well as through successful negotiations with prosecutors. Our complete list of jury trial and pretrial victories is too voluminous to list.)
