A DUI arrest can affect every aspect of your life, including your family, your job, your finances and your freedom. Law enforcement officials may lead you to believe your case is open-and-shut and that you have no possible defense. This is not true. Every case is different, but DUI stops involve many opportunities for mistakes. A successful defense is possible.

Tell Me Your Side Of The Story
I am attorney Andrew T. Christie, and I understand how stressful DUI charges can be. You may feel painfully embarrassed or worry that a driver’s license suspension will prevent you from working. When you call me, I will listen to your concerns and explain the legal process.
My clients appreciate the effort I devote to their cases, whether they are dealing with a first-time drunk driving charge or a felony DUI charge. Drawing on my experience as a criminal defense attorney, I will analyze the facts of your case, paying particular attention to any search and seizure issues with your traffic stop. I will determine whether the field sobriety tests were properly performed and whether there were any problems with your breath test.
Taking DUI Cases To Trial When Necessary
I also fight felony DUI charges. In Missouri, the third DUI is a felony and these cases often go to trial because they carry serious penalties, including jail time. If you are in this situation, you need an attorney with the litigation skills necessary to present a compelling defense. I have developed a strong reputation as a felony trial attorney, and I am prepared to fight for you in court. I will explain each step of the process in an effort to minimize the stress of the situation.
