How Do We Defend You Against DUI Charges?

Defending someone accused of a DUI crime is a very difficult and specialized job. When evaluating DUI attorneys, you should ensure you hire someone that defends DUI charges all the time and is in court and trial often. General defense attorneys cannot keep up with changing DUI laws and defense techniques. DUI specific charges require DUI specific attorneys. The Judnich Law Office DUI defense team goes above and beyond to obtain training and experience that gets results.

DUI charges always require complete knowledge of the NHTSA approved Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and DUI investigation techniques and if they were properly administered, scored and recorded per official officer training as well as extremely complicated issues surrounding breath tests, breath test refusals and blood draw tests for alcohol. Only an experienced DUI attorney in Missoula like our DUI Defense team have the experience to exclude these results from evidence and limit the ability of prosecutors to prosecute cases and increase the opportunity for successful plea negotiations.

Challenging Blood & Breath Test Evidence


Only expert DUI defense attorneys with the right training and experience are qualified to defend DUI cases involving blood test and breath test results. Make sure you ask an attorney about their experience and training.


Blood Tests

The police may ask you for a blood test. You could voluntarily consent to a blood test — but why would you?

The results will be used against you at a trial. Law enforcement can even apply to obtain a warrant in some situations to FORCIBLY draw your blood against your will and use the results against you. The warrant process is complicated and can be grounds to have your blood testing results thrown out of evidence — if you have an experienced attorney that knows how to get that done.

Further, blood testing on Gas and Liquid Chromatography are extremely complicated. Only the best trained DUI defense attorneys actually know how the testing is done and how to catch errors in testing, sampling, and results generated by crime lab employees.

Marty and Nathan stay up to date on training on these testing procedures and receive expert education on cutting-edge ways to fight DUI charges involving blood tests.

Breath Tests

During a DUI investigation, the police will usually request two (2) breath tests. The first is a preliminary screening performed on a Portable Breath Test (PBT) machine. The PBT is only used to help an officer determine if you should be arrested for DUI.

You have the right to REFUSE this test, and an officer must properly read you the Montana Preliminary Alcohol Screening Test Advisory before asking you to take this test. If you are arrested and taken to jail, the officer will ask you to take another breath test on an Intoxilyzer machine. You have the right to REFUSE THIS TEST. The officer must read you another Implied Consent Advisory before the test. If you refuse this test, your license will be suspended for 6 months in Montana.

An Intoxilyzer utilizes infra-red technology to determine the presence of alcohol molecules. The problem is that this machine has problems seeing a difference between many types of alcohols and other chemicals. This can be grounds to fight your DUI charge.

Sue McCay DUI Testimonial
“Marty was my attorney for a DUI, reckless driving, and refusing a breathalyzer test. I was impressed that he always answered my phone calls, and emails promptly. He made me feel that my case was of utmost importance to him, though I was aware that he had many other clients. He listened to my needs and concerns.

My main priority was to get my driving privileges restored, and he was able to accomplish this need by meeting with the prosecutor within days of my request. Marty is very knowledgeable, and very up to date with the intricacies of the law.

My DUI charge was reduced, and the reckless driving charge was dropped. He was able to arrange the minimum penalties for my reduced charge. Mr. Judnich is well respected in the legal community, and this is a great asset for his clients.

I do not hesitate to give Martin Judnich my highest recommendation. He is truly Missoula’s best.”
