Are You Facing DUI Charges?

For those who live in Los Angeles, the reality of losing driving privileges even temporarily is that life will be much more difficult.

Los Angeles is a city where being able to drive is almost a necessity. I understand this and fight to protect my clients’ rights and driver’s licenses with all of the skill and experience I have gained over more than 30 years of criminal law practice.

Asking The Right Questions Matters

There are many different ways to effectively fight DUI charges. Some of the issues that I will look at to understand how to build the strongest defense for you include:

  • Was there probable cause to stop your vehicle?
  • Was the officer properly trained in administering and interpreting field sobriety tests?
  • Was the Breathalyzer functioning properly?
  • Was the officer who administered the Breathalyzer properly trained in how to use that machine?

I will examine every potential issue that could damage the prosecution’s case against you.

Assistance With The DMV

Many people do not realize that they have 10 days after they have been charged with DUI to request an administrative hearing with the DMV. Failing to do so will result in the automatic loss of driving privileges. I help my clients through the DMV side of their DUI issues as well.
