Since 2002, Attorney Rick Hartley has been dedicated entirely to criminal defense. He has defended clients against operating under the influence (OUI), operating after revocation (OAR), and a variety of felony and misdemeanor charges in state and federal courts. His focus is on OUI, DUI, and DWI defense. Effective OUI defense requires a distinct skill set. An OUI investigation must be scrutinized with an eye to whether law enforcement abided by constitutional limits in their investigation. The OUI trial practice requires an understanding of the law and the science behind the intoxilyzer. Mr. Hartley will look at each of the factors surrounding the OUI stop and process in preparing for trial.
