Hinds County DUI/DWI Defense Attorney
With 19 years of criminal defense experience, Brent Brumley knows how to assert your rights and challenge your drunk driving arrest. He has represented clients facing misdemeanor and felony DUI charges, including:
- DUI first offense
- Aggravated or repeat DUI
- Underage DUI
- DUI refusal hearings
- DUI accidents
- Driving after DUI suspension
- DUI appeals
Under current Mississippi law, a DUI cannot be nonadjudicated. This means that you cannot plead it down to a lesser charge — you must win your case or face the penalties of a DUI conviction.
Important changes in Mississippi DUI law take effect on July 1, 2014. After that date, first-time DUIs may be eligible for nonadjudication (plea bargains) and expungement from your record. However, the "look-back" for repeat offenses will increase to 10 years and the penalties for DUI will be more severe. We will approach your current DUI in light of these coming changes to protect your long-term interests.
Certified In Law Enforcement Techniques
Brent Brumley is a certified Intoxilyzer operator and certified in standardized field sobriety testing. This is the same training that police, sheriff and State Patrol personnel receive. He is also a sustaining member of the National College for DUI Defense.
What this all means is that Mr. Brumley is trained to challenge the traffic stop, field sobriety tests such as the walk-and-turn or pen test, and the results of your breath test. He knows how these procedures should be conducted and how to cross-examine the arresting officer to cast doubt on the charges against you.
