Strong & Compassionate DUI Defense in California

Police can charge you with driving under the influence, or DUI, for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they thought you were driving erratically and you refused a breathalyzer test, or maybe they administered a road sobriety test and decided that you failed. Regardless of the reason the police arrested you, you need a strong legal defense to keep the DUI charge from negatively affecting your future.

Some of the consequences of a conviction for DUI may include:

  • Thousands of dollars in fines and court fees
  • 48 hours in jail
  • Loss of your driver’s license for at least 30 days, followed by months of significant driving restrictions
  • An expensive three-month alcohol treatment program (nine months if your blood alcohol content was 0.20% or higher)
  • Significantly higher penalties if someone was injured or killed due to you driving under the influence

What to Do If Police Pull You Over for DUI in California

Police Car - Bay Area DUI Attorney

Insist on your right to an Bay Area DUI Lawyer. That is the most important advice we can give you. Many people try to explain their position to police, but that rarely goes well. Instead, keep quiet until your lawyer is present. You should also write down everything you remember about the incident as soon as possible. No matter how sure you are that you would never forget the police arresting you for DUI, you will be surprised how quickly the details get fuzzy. Knowing exactly what happened will help us pinpoint any areas where the police overreached their authority. You do not have to take a field sobriety test at the site where you were pulled over. There are no clear standards for what constitutes a pass or fail, and the officer will often use the results—no matter what they are—against you. The accuracy of these tests is far from proven.
