Challenging The Results Of A Breathalyzer Test

A Breathalyzer reading is an important part of evidence gathered by law enforcement, but it can be challenged. An attorney with experience handling DUI cases knows the shortcomings in this technology and can dispute the findings.

Attorney Lee Lockett of Lockett Law, P.A., is one of the premier DUI defense lawyers working in Florida. Based in the Jacksonville area but serving clients in northeastern Florida, our managing partner has devoted a substantial part of his career defending clients facing DUI charges, including felony DUI. He is effective and aggressive litigator in court, but he also understands the complexities involved in using the Intoxilyzer 8000 for blood alcohol level testing.

Challenging The Results

We often challenge the Breathalyzer results using one or more of the following arguments:

  • This technology is not 100 percent reliable.
  • The Breathalyzer was improperly calibrated, and did not give an accurate reading.
  • The officer was not properly trained to use the device.
  • The Breathalyzer test was illegal because there was not probable cause.
  • The testing officer does not appear in court to testify.

A Leader In The Field Of DUI Defense

We are wholly dedicated to protecting the rights of our clients. However, Lee Lockett is also regarded a thought leader in the field of DUI defense. He co-chairs an annual Blood Breath & Tears DUI Defense seminar, sharing his experience and knowledge with other criminal defense attorneys working here in Florida. He has also published articles on DUI defense and related matters.
