Merrisa L. Coleman-Bishop - San Jose DUI Defense Attorney
If you've been stopped for any California drunk driving offense, you already know that you're in serious trouble. You've probably spent a night or two in jail, and your driver's license has already been suspended. It can get worse from here. For dependable advice and skilled representation on an alcohol-related driving charge in the Bay Area, contact San Jose DUI lawyer Merrisa Coleman-Bishop. She can help you protect yourself in a bad situation.
Santa Clara County DUI/DWI defense attorney Merrisa Coleman-Bishop can represent you on such charges as the following:
- DUI, driving while intoxicated, and implied consent violations for refusal to give a breath test
- Driver's license suspension, and application for a restricted license at a DMV administrative hearing
- Repeat DUI offenses
- Aggravated DUI, such as cases involving accidents, resisting arrest, or injuries caused by a collision
Merrisa Coleman-Bishop can carefully examine every feature of your arrest, from the probable cause of the arresting officer to stop your vehicle, to the officer's suspicion that you were intoxicated, to the results of the blood alcohol test. She'll compare the police report to the laboratory work, field sobriety tests, and the testimony of any witnesses to the arrest for inconsistencies. She can also work toward a challenge either of the arresting officer's qualifications to administer a blood alcohol test or the plausibility of the results themselves based on prior experience with that particular apparatus.
In other words, San Jose DUI attorney Merrisa Coleman-Bishop can explore the possibility of challenging the circumstances of the arrest and the evidence against you in order to achieve the most favorable result possible.
