Aggressive DUI Defense: Developing an Effective Courtroom and DMV Strategy

dui informationWe aggressively defend DUI charges both in court and at DMV hearings, by strategizing with clients to develop an effective defense. We want to know why the police stopped your car, how well you performed on the field sobriety tests, whether the officer completed a 15-minute observation period prior to the breath test, and if the machine had any history of malfunction. We specialize in developing a defense to DUI charges relying on the breathalyzer breath test or a blood test by utilizing the science behind blood-alcohol evidence. Our law firm’s aggressive courtroom approach leads to charges being dropped or reduced when we can demonstrate that a traffic stop lacked sufficient legal cause, the breathalyzer machine malfunctioned, the alcohol absorption was insufficient, or other problems of proof exist such as the improper collection or preservation of blood after a DUI arrest.

Our Los Angeles DUI attorneys will work immediately to protect your rights, and fight on your behalf to avoid a serious criminal conviction being on your record. Keep in mind that you have 10 days from your arrest to request a DMV hearing. We ensure that your hearing is set timely and defend you at the hearing, to prevent your driver’s license from being suspended.

California DUI Laws: Felony and Misdemeanor Offenses (.08% Alcohol or Drugs)

In Los Angeles, if you are driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or above, or have drugs in your system, you may be charged with a DUI in court. A DUI is a criminal offense which is charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor crime. If you, or someone you care about, have been arrested for drunk driving, it is important to immediately contact a Los Angeles drunk driving attorney. A misdemeanor charge of DUI, or driving under the influence, is a serious offense which can result in fines, alcohol school, probation, community service, and jail time – even for a first time offense. A felony DUI charge may be filed in criminal court as a result of bodily injury or death resulting from a traffic collision. This offense carries the possibility of a severe state prison sentence. We understand that a DUI arrest may have devastating results, and we work aggressively to dismiss or reduce all related misdemeanor and felony charges including possession of illegal drugs, driving on a suspended license, hit & run, and reckless driving.
