Not all attorneys are the same.  People think calling one lawyer is the same as calling the other.  It is not true. You have to make sure the attorney you are teaming up with will give you the best resolution you can have.

I receive a lot of inquiries from people who were just released from jail or their loved ones are in jail after a DUI arrest. The situation usually comes out of the blue and it involves someone who has never been through the process.

People start remembering all the stories about DUIs they got from friends, news, etc. Some of them are true with most being myths. People then start googling and get a slew of information, with a lot of the information being too general or conflicting.

When I left the prosecution side of DUIs I spent a lot of time making a website that had true content that could assist people with answering questions. There is no website out there that has all the answers to DUIs. Every DUI case is unique and you can "what if" yourself to death. What I recommend you check out local attorneys who have DUI experience with solid reviews. You be proactive and begin working on your case. You have 10 days from the date of arrest to have the attorney to contact the DMV to stay the license suspension and six weeks until your first court date. You want to be proactive. Contact our office now for a free consultation at (858) 751-4384. Below is a little on the San Diego DUI process.

When someone is charged with a DUI, one of the facts that need to be examined is the blood alcohol content. If you are a .08% or higher then you are considered DUI.  People will often have a BAC that is 2 or 3 times the legal limit.   High alcohol content in the blood will act as an aggregating factor for the prosecutor when determining how to handle your case.
