How We Can Help

Please Call 877-378-6505

Have you been charged with a DUI, DWAI or drunk driving offense in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Teller County or Southern Colorado? Are you confused, embarrassed, and concerned about how this charge will affect your future? Are you aware of all the possible penalties and collateral consequences involved with a DUI or in Colorado Springs or Southern Colorado?

At McDowell & Laybourne we understand that being charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) in Colorado can be one of the most frightening events in your life. A conviction for a DUI or DWAI can have lasting effects on your future, including your driver's license, your job, and even your freedom.

Our clients often find themselves asking: "What do I do now?" or "What are my options?" You need an experienced and knowledgeable Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Teller County DUI attorney in your corner to walk you through the stages of your case and to aggressively pursue the best possible outcome for you. Joshua McDowell & Brad Laybourne are both former Colorado Springs Deputy District Attorneys who have experience on both sides of a DUI case in Colorado. We understand how to negotiate effectively at all stages to obtain a result that will have the least impact on your life, your job, your license and your freedom. You need the localized knowledge of a DUI attorney who knows the ropes in Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Teller County.

In many cases we are able to obtain a positive result for our clients through pretrial negotiations and motions, and a trial is not necessary. However, in some DUI cases a jury trial is in your best interest. In all cases we will thoroughly prepare and investigate the facts in your case to find legal and factual flaws in the government's case against you. When we handle your DUI case we will obtain all police reports, results of chemical tests, breathalyzer tests, blood tests, and other information essential to the defense of your case.

In every Colorado DUI or DWAI case there are many defenses that an experienced Colorado Springs DUI lawyer can use effectively to your benefit. At every stage of your case we have the opportunity to attack the prosecution's case in the following areas:


  • The legal and factual validity of the traffic stop
  • Probable cause for arrest
  • Roadsides/field sobriety tests
  • Chemical Tests
  • The Arresting Officer's training and experience to administer roadside and chemical tests

These are just a few areas in which the government's case against you can fall apart. McDowell & Laybourne have the experience and knowledge as Colorado Springs DUI attorneys to spot the problems in the government's case and to exploit them to your advantage.



DMV Process

Many people do not know that when you are charged with a DUI in Colorado Springs or Southern Colorado that two processes begin; the criminal process and the DMV license revocation process. In addition to the criminal defense of your DUI we will also aggressively pursue all options at the DMV to minimize the impact on your driving privileges. If you refuse a chemical test (blood or breath test), or your Blood Alcohol Content (B.A.C.) is above the legal limit you will be served with a notice of revocation of your license. YOU HAVE 7 DAYS FROM RECEIPT OF THIS NOTICE TO REQUEST A DMV HEARING! This is one of the many reasons you need to contact an experienced Colorado DUI Attorney immediately after you have been charged with a DUI or a DWAI.
