Los Angeles Lawyers Defending California DUI Charges
THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO SUCCESSFULLY DEFEND A DUI CHARGE. The defenses to DUI charges in California will typically fall into three categories:
- Field Sobriety Tests
- Chemical Testing
At CDI, We Attack All Three Areas
- Did you know that speeding, by itself, is consistent with sobriety and not intoxication?
- Did you know that field sobriety tests are designed for you to fail, and that many people fail them with absolutely no alcohol in their system?
- Did you know that breath testing machines must be properly calibrated to function properly?

Remember, a conviction requires all 12 jurors to agree on the guilt of the accused. A skilled Los Angeles DUI criminal defense attorney can create doubt in these categories, making the prosecution's evidence seem shaky, and giving the jurors a reason to find that the prosecution cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. The result is often times a not guilty vote! An aggressive and experienced DUI lawyer can point out all of the things that the accused did right and demonstrate that the accused was not driving drunk.
For example, an experienced Los Angeles drunk driving defense lawyer can demonstrate that the driving pattern was consistent with sobriety, that the accused answered all of the police officers' questions, and that the accused understood directions for the field sobriety tests. They can show the complete picture, not just what was done wrong, and can go a long way towards rebutting the prosecution's case. They will know how to point out the faults of whichever chemical test was taken, or the legitimate reasons why a chemical test was refused. There are many reasons for unreliable breath tests. The accused may have burped prior to taking the test. The machine may be improperly calibrated. Blood samples can also have false high results. A blood sample may have improper levels of preservatives. The individual withdrawing the blood may not be properly credentialed and may not follow the rules of Title 17.
