Overland Park Blood Alcohol Content Restrictions

BAC Evidence in DUI Charges in Overland Park

BAC or blood alcohol content is basically a measure of how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. The number is determined as a percentage and that number also determines whether or not you may be facing DUI charges. DUI is prosecuted very aggressively in Kansas and it is vital that you contact a professional and confident Overland Park criminal defense attorney right away to ensure that your rights are aggressively protected. Gigstad Law Office, LLC is extremely knowledgeable in DUI cases and law, and we keep ourselves fully up -to-date on the technologies involved in determining BAC levels. Our firm may be able to challenge the BAC results in your case. No matter what the circumstances of your case are, we could vigorously defend you and utilize all available resources to pursue the best possible outcome in your case.

Possessing a Kansas driver's license means that you have given implied consent to have your BAC determined when a law enforcement officer requests you to do so. If you refuse to consent to BAC testing, most commonly a breathalyzer test, you may be facing penalties that are more severe than a DUI conviction. For example, a first offense of refusing to consent to a BAC test can result in a loss of driving privileges for one year and you may be ordered to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle when your license is restored. If you do submit to BAC testing and your result is over .08 %, you will probably be charged with DUI. While DUI penalties can be severe, our firm will diligently work to assist you in avoiding the harshest consequences. We will fight for you. Our firm is driven to achieve excellent results for our clients.

Challenging BAC Results

In most instances, the prosecution will base their case on your BAC results. Whether those results were obtained through a breath test or blood test, the test results may be subject to error. While people generally put their faith in science, the truth is that blood and breath testing are not as precise as many would have you believe, and there are many factors that can skew results. For example, breathalyzers require constant calibration and our firm will investigate the breathalyzer used to obtain your results to determine if your BAC results should be considered valid.

In addition, breathalyzers require a very precise method of testing to obtain an accurate result. We will evaluate how your test was conducted and if there was an error we may be able to have the charges against you dismissed. Blood tests are also subject to error and we will investigate the laboratory procedures and equipment used in your specific DUI charge. At our firm, we understand that science is fallible. Our legal team is committed and results-driven, and should evaluate your case immediately. At our firm, every client and every case is important.

Contact an Overland Park DUI attorney from our committed and effective firm without delay to evaluate your BAC results and defend you against DUI charges.

    You Are Probably Asking Yourself Some Questions


Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "I Would Highly Recommend Giving Robert a Call"
    Robert was very easy to work with. He took care of my speeding ticket for a very reasonable fee and had the ticket amended down to a non-moving violation so no points against my drivers license or insurance rate increases. If you have a speeding ticket in the KC area that needs to be dealt with, I would highly recommend giving Robert a call.
    "I Couldn't Be More Pleased!"
    I couldn't be more pleased with Mr. Gigstad's services. Contacting a law firm you typically are faced with leaving multiple messages and dealing with secretaries that might not always know the best route to take. From the very first time I contacted Roberts office he personally was always very quick to respond to email and explain exactly what need to be done in my case. You never want the need for a lawyer but if the need arises again I will not hesitate to contact Mr. Gigstad again for his services.
    "Would Highly Recommend Robert to Others"
    I was facing a second DUI and was very much dreading the impact this would make on my professional career and near future goals. Robert walked me through each part of the process and made sure I understood what to expect through the court process. He was very professional and made sure that no stone was turned. The end result, unbelievably was my charges were all dismissed. He was able to find an important information that lead to the dismissal. Would highly recommend Robert to others.
    Happy Client
    "Great to work with!"
    Mr. Gigstad was upfront and professional about what I would be facing from the very beginning. He worked to help me understand the situation and found the best available outcome for me, considering. I would hope if I ever need legal representation again I would be in the hands of someone as professional and experienced as Mr. Gigstad.

    "I Appreciate Robert's Efficiency and Patience"
    I really appreciate Robert's help with my case. I was ashamed, stressed and overwhelmed due to my intent to deprive charge. Robert made the process very easy and reminded me that everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect. I never felt judged or as though he was telling me what I wanted to hear for money, he is sincere! I appreciate Robert's efficiency and patience, he always took time to explain everything in detail, e-mailed and/or called me back within the same business day. I never had to attend court until I signed my diversion paperwork. Needless to say I wouldn't hesitate to rehire Robert and you won't be disappointed for choosing Robert.
    "I Was Incredible Thankful for the Services I Received During My DUI Case"
    I was incredible thankful for the services I received during my DUI case. Not only was Robert responsive, helpful and efficient, he was very respectful to my time and communicated with me constantly. I could always count on if I sent him something I would know what to expect by the next day. Chris maintained an exquisite level of professionalism and tack when dealing with my case. I never once felt like he was treating me as just another case and would recommend his services to anyone.
    "Robert Was Able to Get My Case Dropped"
    I had just had my second DUI and I thought I was in big trouble. Since it was a 2nd I thought I was definitely going to jail, but Robert was able to get my case dropped. I could not believe it!
    "Everything with my experience has been far and above."
    Everything with my experience has been far and above. But the kindness and being treated with such respect has meant so much to me.
