Challenging the DUI Breath Tests
Valencia court has been around for a long time. There are many DUIs in its jurisdiction because the roads are set up in the surrounding communities, such as Valencia, Saugus, and Canyon Country.
The way these signal lights and the way the streets are set up, there are many accidents. There are a lot of DUIs. There are a lot of moving violations, and if the Valencia Sheriff's Department has ever pulled over anybody, you realize they're not messing around.
They're looking to take people into custody. They're looking to arrest people for DUIs. Also, CHP, California Highway Patrol, is very active. They're pulling people over all the time on the 5 Freeway near Valencia.
So, if you have a DUI related to a Valencia arrest and you're looking for an attorney, you've come to the right place. I've handled thousands of DUIs over the past 26 years in that jurisdiction.
I know how to defend them. I know how to attack the stop. I know how to attack the breath tests, and there are a host of other issues that can come up in DUI cases.
Of course, depending on the circumstances. That's the critical thing you have to realize when defending a DUI case in Valencia, and that is that not all cases are the same, and therefore, not all strategies are the same. You have to see what happens.
Challenging Blood Alcohol Level At Time of Driving
Sometimes the police come upon somebody, and the person is not driving. Maybe they're out of the vehicle; they're involved in accident minutes or even hours before.
They're trying to get that person for a DUI when they don't know what the person's blood-alcohol level was when driving, which is the key to getting somebody for a DUI.
A whole host of issues can come up, including problems with the breath machine or drawing of the blood.
So, we first do everything we can to figure out if there's any defense that can help you.
The next move we make, if there is no defense and you're not going to be able to get a not guilty verdict, or you're not going to get the case dismissed by some motion, the defense is not over at that point.
Seeking Reduced DUI Charges
Now we have to look at if we can get a different charge. Can we get something less than a DUI? If your blood alcohol level was very high in Valencia, they're going to be looking to put you in jail.
They will also do some things that cause you to realize that drinking and driving, especially drinking a lot of alcohol, is very dangerous to you or your passengers and hazardous to the community at large.
So, you want to make sure you have an attorney who knows what they're doing in this area of the law, has had success and knows what it takes to defend the case.
If we can get a different charge, you don't get convicted of a DUI. Another thing that can happen if we have a high blood alcohol level is if we do have dangerous driving, high-speed driving, or some accident.
Now we're looking to keep the person out of jail and avoid some of the other penalties that can come along with a DUI.
Whether it be a first time, the second time, third time, or even fourth time DUI.
