Effective DUI Defense Strategies
Too often, those charged with DUI feel that a guilty verdict is inevitable. They have already been stopped, chemical tested, and processed—what possible defense could there be? The truth is that there are many important factors to be assessed in a DUI arrest and small oversights that might go overlooked may invalidate the charges against you.
Important factors to review in your DUI case:
- Did law enforcement have proper probable cause to pull you over?
- Was the breathalyzer used in your chemical test properly stored and calibrated?
- Did you pass your field sobriety test?
- Did an officer threaten legal consequences for not submitting to a field sobriety test?
These factors and many others are critical to determining the legality of your DUI stop. To find out if your DUI arrest could be vulnerable to a customized, incisive defense strategy, contact a Santa Rosa DUI attorney at our offices today.
DMV Hearing Representation
Criminal charges are only part of the consequences of your DUI charge. Those arrested have 10 days to request a hearing with the DMV concerning the offense and the retention of their driver's license. Failure to do this will result in a mandatory four month suspension of the license. This is called the 10 Day Rule.
Having proper counsel during this hearing can help you assert the circumstances of the arrest and your prior driving record, both of which can result in a lift of the four month suspension. If you have been charged, then time is of the essence. Contact Ronald Dinan & Associates to take action against your license suspension today.
