DUI/DWI Lawyer Los Altos CA
Driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated due to alcohol or drug use is a crime. When you are arrested for a DUI or DWI you will be facing serious criminal penalties. There are many ways to fight DUI or DWI charges and your attorney can outline for you your defense options. Your defense may include challenging the officer’s account of your driving, your behavior and your arrest the accuracy of the Breathalyzer tests.
Our firm handles all aspects of a driving under the influence charge. We handle not only the District Attorney’s Office and Police, but also the California DMV. You have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to protect your driving privileges! The police and the DMV typically will not fully advise you of the 10 day rule to protect your driving privileges. We take your freedom seriously, but fighting to keep your driving privileges is important as well. We cannot promise results, of course, but we have extensive experience in this area of law and will represent you with zealous effectiveness.
The State of California has defined penalties for refusing to submit to a blood test, breath tests, urine tests or any other test(s) requested by the officer. Refusal to submit to tests when you have been stopped for a suspected DUI or DWI automatically results in loss of your license. We help you appeal suspension or license revocation. These must be started immediately after your arrest.
Clients ask “I took the test offered by the officer. Am I okay?” Even if you took the blood test, breath test, or urine test requested by a police officer, you MAY be facing license suspension or license revocation if your breath, blood or urine test result exceeded California’s prohibited level.
