This is a good question because just like in any profession, not all lawyers are the same.  Not all of them have the same experience.  Not all of them have the same qualifications. Also, and not all of them have the disposition that you're going to need to deal with the prosecutor and deal with the judges and if the case has to be litigated, to deal with motion practice in DUI cases, to deal with jury trial in DUI cases.

California Vehicle Code 14601.2 This is a very common offense that I represent clients for throughout Los Angeles county and the various courthouses related to DUI cases.  I've been doing it now for 25 years and this is definitely something that the police target. Driving on suspended license for a DUI conviction is described under California Vehicle Code 14601.2. They get people for driving on a suspended license -- and their license was suspended because they got a DUI, didn't comply with everything they were supposed to with the DMV and then started driving again. The reason this is a common…Read More

If someone's driving under the influence of alcohol or prescription medication or a combination of both or marijuana, any type of narcotic or substance that impacts your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle and you kill somebody and it looks like it's your fault, you're looking at potentially being charged with murder. It used to be that you would have had to have a prior DUI.  You would have had to have been warned about how dangerous it is to drink and drive or use drugs and drive. Murder vs Gross Vehicular Manslaughter Not anymore though because everybody in…Read More

The police will be out in force this holiday season -- Christmas, New Years.  This is the time when they make most of their arrests.  Not just on the days of Christmas and New Year's, but also New Year's Eve and all the weekends leading up to these holidays. Even the weekdays people are going to Christmas parties, coming home drunk, not realizing -- the people who even haven't drank much -- realizing how alcohol can affect you.  They're having a few drinks trying to drive home and end up either getting in an accident, swerving on the road, being…Read More

When it comes to someone under the age of 21 getting into a DUI accident, obviously that person is going to need an attorney right away.  The case will probably be sent into the juvenile court if they're under the age of 18. If they're over the age of 18, the person will be sent into the adult court.  If there was damage caused to a vehicle or someone was injured, obviously parents are usually worried that they will be responsible for paying money because of their minor child's accident.

This is a good question because obviously, if you've got a DUI you're concerned and worried about the loss of your driver's license.  You're worried about doing to jail.  You're worried about being put on probation. You're worried about how it's going to affect your criminal record.  So, obviously, you want to get an attorney that you feel comfortable with and you feel like they know what they're doing and is going to get you the best possible result for your DUI case.

What people don't seem to realize, and unfortunately fall prey to every night on the streets of Los Angeles and across California is that law enforcement is out in force. This is especially true during the holidays and the weekends to try to catch those individuals drinking alcohol and driving their vehicles. So, you should be aware of usually happens if busted for a DUI.

One thing that will really help you understand and deal with your DUI case is if you understand how the prosecutors will present the evidence against you.  Really, what they have to prove in order to get you for a DUI is that you were driving with alcohol in your system and you couldn't safely operate a motor vehicle. That's Vehicle Code Section 23152(a).  In that Section it really doesn't matter what your blood alcohol level is; it matters whether they can show there's alcohol in your system and it matters whether or not you couldn't safely operate a motor…Read More

When it comes to DUI, it's definitely fair to say that not all DUI's are treated the same.  There are so many different factors that go into what could potentially happen to you.  Of course, jurisdiction is important.  Is you case in a courthouse that is very tough on DUI's or in a courthouse that is more reasonable on a DUI case? That's really the first starting point and that's something you're obviously going to discuss with your DUI defense attorney. To see what things you might be able to do to swing the factors in your favor, like getting…Read More

This is a big question on a lot of people's minds and when they call me or come in and meet with me regarding a DUI arrest, they're usually talking about that they have a good driving record, a good job, a family and they can't have this conviction on their record. Blood Alcohol Level & Field Sobriety Tests Really, those aren't the factors prosecutors are looking at when deciding whether or not to file a DUI against somebody.  They're going to be looking at hard factors like what was your blood alcohol level?  How was your driving?  How did…Read More
