DUI & Vehicular Crimes

DUI & Vehicular Crimes

Many drivers arrested for DUI assume the evidence against them is insurmountable. Very often, they’re wrong.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense, and California has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country.  The potential penalties for a DUI include jail time, loss of license, and large fines.

California prosecutors aggressively pursue DUI cases.  As a result, they often overreach, bringing DUI charges that skilled and experienced attorneys can defeat – whether by securing pretrial dismissal of the charges or prevailing at trial.  Among the most common defenses to a DUI charge are the following:

  • You were improperly stopped by the arresting officer.
  • The chemical test you were given was faulty or you were not given a chemical test.
  • You were driving out of necessity or under duress and had no other options.
  • The arresting officer engaged in misconduct, whether intentional or otherwise.

In addition to convictions for DUI, convictions for other vehicular offenses – ranging from reckless driving to vehicular manslaughter – can have far-reaching and potentially devastating consequences for the accused.
