Certified DUI Intoxilyzer Operators

If an Intoxilyzer was used in your case, we have the “know how” to examine the validity of the operator’s permit and to examine the machine’s calibration records. A failure of the police to properly comply with administrative rules may render your breath test results inadmissible in court.

Intoxilyzer Machine Inspector

Attorney Tim Sullivan is one of just a few Florida lawyers trained in FDLE curriculum to inspect and evaluate the maintenance protocol of the Intoxilyzer 8000 used in your case. Breath testing results are only admissible in court if the machine has passed regular local and state inspections.

Roadside Field Sobriety Test Certified

Attorney Marc Pelletier received the same field sobriety test training as law enforcement. Thus, our team can review your DUI video to determine if your tests were properly administered and fairly interpreted.

"Masters of DUI” Program

Each lawyer has successfully fulfilled the prerequisites of the 2016 Masters of DUI Program conducted through the Florida Bar’s Department of Continuing Education..

Graduates of the NCDD at Harvard Law School

Marc Pelletier and Tim Sullivan completed an intensive course of study at the National College for DUI Defense. This advanced-level training in the art of DUI advocacy is widely recognized by lawyers as a superior “hands on” approach to learning top notch DUI defense strategy.
