Attorney For DUI/Drunk Driving in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills

DUI/Drunk Driving Lawyer in Los Angeles

Being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is a very serious matter that requires immediate handling if you are to preserve your driving privilege. If arrested, you are at risk of losing your license, and possibly even going to jail. Law enforcement officers in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas are continually watching out for erratic behavior on the part of drivers. If they suspect for some reason that you are inebriated, they have the right to pull you over. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) exceeds .08% in California, you are considered to be driving under the influence. Because individuals with a BAC over that limit normally have impaired functions and can lose concentration and alertness while driving, this limit was established to protect the general population from drunk drivers who at greater risk of being involved in an accident. If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is essential you obtain the services of a qualified DUI/Drunk Driving Attorney in the Los Angeles or Beverly Hills area to represent you against these charges.

Because of the severity of possible consequences from drunk driving, which could injure and kills others, California State laws provide harsh penalties for violators. These penalties may generally include jail time and steep fines, as well as suspension of your driver's license.There is a set procedure law enforcement follows when stopping you for suspected drunk driving, which includes a field sobriety test, such as walking in a straight line or counting backwards. You are also given a breathalyzer test at the police station, which will measure your BAC exactly. If it measured over the legal limit, you would be arrested at that point. Refusing a BAC test can result in automatic suspension of your license in addition to increased penalties.

It is important to have a skilled defense lawyer representing you in this matter. You may not be aware of the time limits that must be followed in order to properly defend your drunk driving arrest. If you fail to follow the requirements, you may end up in jail or with a lengthy driver's license suspension. After arrest you have only ten days to schedule a hearing, which will determine whether your license will be suspended at that time or not.
