Facing a DUI charge can be scary when you don’t know what to expect. However, with the right legal representation and support system, you will have a much better chance of getting your life back on track.
In the state of California, drivers with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher can be convicted of driving under the influence. A conviction will likely result in fines of close to $5,000, higher car insurance rates, and alcohol treatment programs. You may face a suspended license and jail time, even if you are a first-time offender. For second and third-time offenders, the consequences are even more serious.
Not all people facing a DUI charge are guilty. In many cases, constitutional rights are violated or administrative mistakes are made when administering blood alcohol tests. There have even been mistakes with regards to the accuracy of the results. Having an attorney challenge the admissibility of evidence could make or break your case. By asking the right questions, your charges could get dropped or reduced dramatically. Even if there were no mistakes throughout the process, you may still be able to strike a plea deal or get a reduced sentence if the right defense is in place.
Attempting to navigate the court process alone can be daunting for anyone. Fortunately, the office of Dale Gribow Attorney at Law has helped thousands of people facing DUI charges.
