A lot of people don't realize the severe consequences they can face when they are arrested for a DUI and they are serving in the military.  Basically, the military has a standard that if you have any alcohol in your system and you can't safely operate a motor vehicle then they're going to find that you are DUI. Not only…Read More

Obviously, the answer is yes you need an attorney unless you just want to throw yourself on the mercy of the court and hope you don't go to jail, lose your driver's license, put on probation and host…Read More

An expert is not always appropriate in a DUI case. In order to use an expert, some issue is going to have to come up where you need the expert. A perfect example of this would be the prosecutors get the blood test of the defendant and the blood alcohol level is really close to a .08. Contaminants in the…Read More

The California Highway Patrol has primary responsibility for dealing with traffic-related matters on freeways and roads. They are also known as the CHP and they probably, by far, arrest the most people for DUI's in Los Angeles County more than any other law enforcement agency.

Most of the DUI's that I've seen over the last twenty-five years that I've defended, the person is giving their breath. There are occasions where someone gives their blood. Way back in the day, they used to take urine. Now it's either blood or breath, and most of the time it's easier for the police to get the person's breath,…Read More
