Escondido DUI Lawyer

Trusted Advice for Good People Faced with DUI Charges

You’re a good, upstanding citizen. You pay your bills on time, stick to the speed limit, and don’t break any laws. But one night, you had a few drinks with a friend and ended up being stopped at a DUI checkpoint. Even though you weren’t weaving in and out of lanes or swerving around corners, you’ve been arrested. If you’re wondering what to do next, your best option is hiring a DUI lawyer. Your attorney can give you advice, prepare you for what’s next, and prepare a defense that gives you the best chance of a good outcome from your case.

DUI Arrests

The reason you can be arrested for DUI even if you’re not driving erratically is because of the California DUI laws. There’s a specific section of the Motor Vehicle Code that makes the BAC limit for most drivers 0.08%. This is the law regardless of how much you’ve had to drink, what your driving habits are, and whether or not you’ve had an accident. If you’re under the age of 21, the limit is much lower, and commercial drivers have a limit of 0.04% due to the added danger of transporting potentially hazardous materials and driving such large vehicles. If you have been arrested for having a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit, contact an Escondido DUI lawyer.

DMV Cases

What’s interesting about DUI cases in California is that each case has two different parts. One is the criminal part that most people are aware of; this leads to a trial and you can even be sentenced to probation time, jail, or other criminal penalties. The lesser-known aspect of each DUI case is the administrative license suspension levied by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Your license is suspended as soon as you are arrested and you only have a ten-day window to request a hearing in the matter. If you hire an Escondido DUI lawyer to represent you during your case, you may also ask them to represent you during your DMV hearing.

There are many benefits to hiring an experienced and qualified attorney. Make the intelligent choice by consulting with a DUI attorney. It may make the difference between winning and losing your DUI case.
