A lawful traffic stop finds its foundation in reasonable suspicion. This means the law enforcement officer must have factual grounds to believe that a violation of the law has occurred. Our team checks if the initial traffic stop had a solid legal basis, examining facts to counter any assertions made during your DUI charge.

Without reasonable suspicion, a stop may be considered illegitimate, potentially rendering evidence collected during the stop as inadmissible in court. Scrutinizing a traffic stop's legality requires a careful review of the events leading up to it, and this is where our legal network shines.

Reasonable suspicion is more than a hunch; it's substantiated by observable facts or patterns of behavior. Traffic violations, erratic driving, or compliance with known DUI characteristics could provide such suspicion. Our attorneys will dig deep into the facts surrounding your stop to identify any discrepancies in the officer's justification.

You deserve a defense that meticulously reviews every aspect of your traffic stop, and our focus is unwavering when ensuring your rights are preserved. Dissecting the nuances between a hunch and a legally valid suspicion forms the bedrock of our defense strategies.

Knowing your rights during a stop is crucial. You have the right to remain silent and can refuse to consent to a search of your vehicle. However, you must provide identification and comply with lawful commands. Our team educates clients on the appropriate conduct during stops to prevent inadvertent self-incrimination.

Being polite and composed can significantly affect the interaction with law enforcement. Yet, asserting your rights respectfully is equally important. Our guidance can help balance these actions, ensuring you make choices that serve your best interests during these high-pressure situations.

An officer's conduct during a traffic stop is heavily scrutinized within any DUI defense. From the legality of the stop to the procedures followed during evidence collection-every action is pivotal. Inaccuracies, procedural errors, or rights infringements can all play into devising a defense that questions the validity of the DUI charge.

Documenting officer behavior, the dialogue exchanged, and the manner in which sobriety tests were administered are all crucial components. We empower clients by focusing on the comprehensive collection and examination of these details-because in court, precision matters.


Diving into the intricacies of a challenge to the legality of a DUI stop is a nuanced process. This requires not just legal knowledge but a thorough understanding of both statutory and case law. At Hines Ranc & Holub, we have cultivated a national network of attorneys adept in dissecting DUI cases, working to unveil any encroachments on your legal protections during a traffic stop.

Contesting the legality of a stop is a meticulous operation that often involves questioning the grounds of the initial stop, the subsequent arrest, and the admissibility of evidence.

A case for an unwarranted stop hinges on illustrating that the officer's reasons for the stop were insufficient according to the law. Our lawyers meticulously review police reports, dashboard camera footage, and witness testimonies to construct a narrative that questions the validity of the stop.

Should evidence reveal procedural errors or lack of just cause, it presents an opportunity to file a suppression motion. This can lead to the exclusion of crucial evidence or, in some cases, dismissal of the charges. We'll leave no stone unturned in securing evidence in your favor.

Evidence forms the crux of any DUI defense. Carefully dissecting each piece, our legal team seeks inaccuracies or unlawful procedures that could tip the scales in your defense. This can range from examining the administration of field sobriety tests to scrutinizing the reliability of breathalyzer devices.

Your defense is only as strong as its ability to challenge every shred of evidence, and rest assured, our attorneys are trained to uncover any aspects that can be questioned in a court of law. This diligent examination is the lifeblood of an effective DUI defense.

Suppressing evidence is a critical stage in your defense when faced with a DUI charge. If evidence was obtained through an illegal traffic stop, it becomes vulnerable to being thrown out in court. This process involves filing a motion to suppress with the court, articulating the reasons why the evidence should not be admitted.

Our seasoned attorneys are familiar with the legal thresholds necessary to persuade a judge to exclude such evidence. Success at this juncture can severely weaken the prosecution's case against you and is a testament to the caliber of our rigorous defense strategies.

Every DUI defense is unique, and understanding the array of strategies available to you is essential. We explore every legal avenue, from scrutinizing the timing and methods of sobriety testing to challenging the officer's testimony. Your options will be laid out clearly, enabling you to make informed decisions at every turn.

Trust that our legal team will always strive to tailor a defense strategy that fits the specific circumstances of your situation. Navigating this complex terrain requires a trusted partner, and we take pride in guiding our clients towards the best possible outcome.


If a law enforcement officer stops you on suspicion of DUI, how you assert your rights from the onset can shape the trajectory of your case. It is vital to act with both awareness and caution-to protect your rights while still adhering to legal requirements. There's a precise balance to maintain, and Hines Ranc & Holub is here to help you navigate this critical juncture with confidence and clarity.

Whether it's limiting your responses to avoid incriminating statements or understanding consent for vehicle searches, knowledge is power. Asserting your rights does not mean rebelling against authority but rather ensuring a fair and just process is followed. Our lawyers can guide you through the possibilities so you can assert your rights effectively.

For further assistance or clarification on how to proceed during a DUI traffic stop, do not hesitate to reach out to us at (512) 930-7500. Our expertise is at your disposal to provide support and defense strategies.

Understanding the bounds of police authority during a traffic stop can save you from unwanted incursions into your rights. Police officers have guidelines they must follow, and any deviation from these protocols can be contentious in a DUI case. Knowledge of these limits is a key asset in your defense arsenal.

We diligently review each case to identify oversteps in authority, such as coercion into taking sobriety tests or unwarranted delays during the stop. Such factors could constitute a breach of your rights, and pinpointing these can play a crucial role in your defense.

The manner in which you communicate with officers during a stop can have substantial implications. It is crucial to remain polite yet firm in asserting your rights. Our guidance can provide the foresight to manage this interaction prudently, ensuring your words or actions do not inadvertently contribute to your prosecution.

We educate our clients on effective communication strategies that uphold their rights without escalating the situation. This includes the importance of clearly stating your refusal to consent to a search or expressing your option to remain silent upon legal advice.

Documenting the DUI stop can provide crucial evidence in your defense. Notes on the officer's conduct, the time and location of the stop, and your recollection of events can all be invaluable. Even seemingly minor details can tip the balance in court.

We encourage our clients to meticulously record their encounters as soon as possible after they occur. These records can be valuable in constructing a defense that genuinely represents your situation. Let our team help you understand what information is crucial to document.

You have the right to refuse consent to a vehicle search, a fact that cannot be emphasized enough. Absent a warrant or probable cause, an officer's search of your vehicle should not be conducted without your consent. Standing firm on your rejection of voluntary searches can prevent any further complicating factors.

We advise clients on the articulation of their refusal in a manner that is clear and assertive. A statement as simple as "I do not consent to a search" can have significant legal weight if the stop escalates to a court case.


After a traffic stop, particularly one that results in DUI charges, the road ahead may seem daunting. Knowing how to navigate this process is essential to upholding your rights and setting the stage for your defense. At Hines Ranc & Holub, we pride ourselves on offering the guidance and representation necessary to steer through the complexities of DUI accusations.

We strive to harness every piece of evidence in support of your case. Collecting and preserving this information early on maximizes its potential impact in your defense.
