Burden of Proof
The prosecution has the burden of proof – they must prove the DUI charges against you beyond reasonable doubts. Various factors can influence the accuracy of the blood test results.

I was in a difficult situation and needed a reputable and trustworthy lawyer to represent me in court against a government agency. I am glad I made an appointment to meet Tom Hogan in his office. The entire office staff is very courteous and professional. Tom Hogan is very likeable, he has a good sense of humor, and my anxiety went away after talking to him for a few minutes. He listened intently on what I had to say and gathered information by asking me several questions pertaining to my case. He has great attention to details. I was able to understand better my predicament after he explained the situation I am in so I decided on day 1 that he is the lawyer I am looking for. He showed up on all my court dates and stood for me against seemingly insurmountable odds. For those who are summoned to appear in court by the government, I guess you can relate… you are in between a hard place and a rock. His arguments turned around the case in my favor. The last court appearance went like a blur and I was still in disbelief as we are walking out of the court house. I asked him, what is going on? He responded ” We won. They are not going to bother you anymore.”Joe Stockton
Mr. Hogan took a personal interest in helping me with my legal issue. It was refreshing to find a lawyer that did not treat you like a number. He asked all the necessary questions so that he could properly represent me. He obviously has a lot of experience and it showed in how he handled my case. I would definitely recommend Mr. Hogan to any of my friends for legal assistance.Al M. Modesto
When I decided to get married he established my pre-nup. Since I had no idea how or what to put into it he was able to advise me on thing I would have never thought about. then 8 years later I needed a legal separation. Since the pre-nup was very detailed it made the legal separation quick and easy. Tom is very knowledgeable and is very understanding. I appreciate that he is tough when he needs to be but at the same time sensitive to the situation. He won’t just tell you what you want to hear but is honest and tell you how the law looks at things. I recommend Tom to anyone that needs a lawyer!Jeri E. Modesto
