Welcome to the Office of Carlos F. Silva, DPM

In the event of a charge of DUI

  • It is not unreasonable to question whether the police properly conducted the field sobriety tests.
  • The testimony of an arresting officer is based on observations that are completely accurate.
  • The terms of how the defendant was able to walk at the time of arrest may question his DUI charge.

When a person stumbles, makes a misstep or has an awkward gait

  • Drinking or under the influence of drugs may not necessarily be the culprit to your akward gait.
  • Faulty foot biomechanics, a previous injury, and other medical conditions can affect how the defendant walks or moves.

By performing a comprehensive gait analysis in our office

  • Demonstrate the presence of either an underlying foot or health issue.
  • Refute the police officer's observation of how the defendant was able to walk at the time of arrest.
  • In a court of law, this information can be essential to proving a defendant is innocent of a DUI charge.
