Drink Driving Law Expert
Alistair Haskett specialises in drink driving cases and has successfully defended many clients facing charges such as excess breath or blood alcohol, refusing a blood test and failing to accompany Police.
Alistair has been recognised as a leading defence lawyer in drink drive cases by judges, prosecutors and other lawyers. Comments about Alistair by judges include “the best drink drive lawyer in Auckland” and that he “knew the area of law relating to drink-driving extremely well”.
There are many procedural, fairness and rights-based defences, which relate to how the Police handled the process when you were stopped and tested. It is often possible to defend drink driving charges, even if you were driving with an excess breath or blood alcohol concentration.
Many clients are surprised at how technical and complex this area of law is, and that they have a defence despite being over the limit. The highly technical nature of drink drive law is why expert advice can make all the difference.
Alistair is confident he will identify the best defence. It may well be possible to avoid a conviction or disqualification, or both, and to avoid related consequences with travel, employment and insurance.
If you decide not to defend the charge specialist advice may still be important on sentencing to negotiate reduced charges and disputed facts, and to advise you on alcohol counselling and other factors that may reduce the sentence.
