Appearing in Burlington Municipal Court following an arrest is intimidating and frightening. Such an appearance does not equate to guilt. In fact the case has only begun and it is the job of the Burlington prosecutor to prove you are guilty. Burlington DUI Lawyer David N. Jolly believes that the constitutional right of innocent before proven guilty is the perfect place to start a case. During a case the law firm’s attorneys will challenge evidence, all evidence, including but definitely not limited to analyzing the maintenance records of breath and blood testing equipment, interrogate the police officer's work and look for errors in the report and breaches in police procedure and policy. The goal is simple and that is to demand the State of Washington or City of Burlington meet its burden of proving guilt. If it cannot prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt on every element of the charge, the result is that charges could be reduced or your case dismissed.
