In DWI and other cases, the video footage from the police cruiser’s dash camera can play a critical role in defending a client.

Dashcam footage can be a useful piece of evidence for your attorney. It helps your attorney evaluate the police’s investigation of the offense as well as the defendant’s performance on field sobriety tests.
