After an arrest, Mr. Ballenger is responsible for immediately conducting a full-scale investigation of your case to preserve all evidence. He will investigate the scene of the arrest and begin to collect valuable evidence to prove your side of the story. This includes taking a picture, videos, and calculated measurements. Next, Mr. Ballenger will request and meticulously comb through the police reports, bodycam footage, nearby security camera footage, audio files, court documents, witness testimony, and any test results to uncover contradictions, errors, or omissions from the police or other government agencies. By the time we get to court, The Edge Law firm will know more about your case than the arresting officer or prosecutor, and that type of insight and preparation is what wins cases.

He will also begin collecting valuable insight about what evidence the prosecution and arresting officer have against our client in the separate criminal case.

The smallest details can lead to the best outcomes. Mr. Morton is known for his successful outcomes for DUI cases. He has been responsible for having Oklahoma laws declared unconstitutional and has gone as far as taking 3 cases to the Supreme Court, which led to over 10,000 breath tests being declared invalid.
