Attorney Elizabeth B Carpenter

Ms. Carpenter has defended nearly every kind of  Drinking and Driving case Imaginable.  It is very important to consult a DWI attorney immediately after a DWI arrest to preserve your driving privileges.  DWI arrests are based solely on officers’ subjective opinions and machines used to measure blood alcohol content can be unreliable, especially when not administered properly. Therefore, DWI defense is very complicated and involves an intricate understanding of the scientific as well as the legal issues. Ms. Carpenter has completed courses on NHTSA DWI Detection and Field Sobriety Testing and the breath testing machine known as the Intoxilyzer 5000. These are the same courses law enforcement must take. This level of dedication to the defense of DWI charges helps helps Ms. Carpenter challenge the common errors that police officers make when arresting citizens for DWI in the New Orleans area. Quite often, these errors form enough evidence to have the entire case dismissed.
