Mike Whipple Wins Hotly Contested Motor Vehicle Hearing

Attorney Michael Whipple, a former prosecutor and Shareholder of Hallett, Zerillo and Whipple, won a contested Bureau of Motor Vehicles this week in an Operating Under the Influence case.
Our prominent client was arrested for an OUI and the allegation was hotly contested. The police officer at the scene and demanded our client take a breath test. Our client was forced to the local police department for a breath test. The officer checked the client's mouth, waited the proper 15 minute wait period and the client blew above the legal limit of .08%. Our client was processed for an OUI and released on bail.
With the combined use of his experience and diligence, Attorney Whipple found a way out for our Client. The officer's report did not reference the fact that our Client had braces. At the the BMV hearing, Attorney Whipple established that the officer had no memory of our Client having braces. As a result, Attorney Whipple was able to convince the Hearing Officer that the suspension should be thrown out due to a failure by the police to follow protocol. Attorney Whipple's argument won the day and our Client was able to drive home from the hearing.
BMV hearings are extremely difficult. Attorney Whipple's victory for our Client this week shows what an experienced and relentless OUI litigator can do for you. Congrats to both Attorney Whipple and our Client.
