It is essential as a San Diego DUI attorney in navigate the client through the process.

SFFD Officer get DUI Dismissed due to bad machine calibrations

Do you just believe because the machine told you so that is what it is?  The breath instruments used in San Diego DUI cases are pretty complex.  You are getting a blood result from a puff of air.   There is already a myriad of issues that need to be examined.  Here, a judge reviewed the evidence and determined the machine was not properly calibtrated.  It is what it is.  The machine determination is not the gospel, especially when the machine is not kept up to standards.

U.S. issues recommendations for San Diego police

The thought that keeps popping up to me is how did the Department of justice provide these recommendations.  More specifically, how did these issues come to light?  Did these come become the San Diego police department and the City Attorney caught an issue and said it needed to be changed?  If you go back and review you will see these local agencies deny any wrongdoing and defend actions.  

San Diego Police giving voluntary BAC testing

This is a great idea with just a few concerns.  This new program allows people to see what their results are.  I cannot tell you how many clients come in telling me they believe they are likely near .08% only to be suprised when their blood results come back and they are significantly higher.  It seems San Diego establishments are not skimping on their alcohol content in drinks.  Many locations give "heavy pours". This does not include San Diego's wonderful selection of IPAs and heavier alcohol content beers.   The result is many people walk around with BACs higher than normal thinking they had just a few drinks.  

Marine reservist once held in Mexico arrested on DUI charge

This guy has been in the news a lot.  I know there was a lot of support for him when he was being held in Mexico.  I am wondering if there is a connection between the incarceration and the potential DUI arrest.  It is a fact that needs to be examined.
