DUI Defense FAQ
San Francisco DUI Defense Lawyer
Am I required to answer law enforcement's questions if I have been pulled over?
You are not legally required to answer any questions asked by police that you feel would incriminate you. If you state that you have been drinking, you are doing so voluntarily.
How much alcohol can an individual consume before going over the legal limit?
An individual who's blood alcohol content is .08 percent or above can be convicted of driving under the influence. For many, this is not considered "drunk". If you are under the age of 21 it is illegal to drive while under the influence of any amount of alcohol.
Do I have to submit to a blood, breath or urine test?
If you refuse to take a chemical test you may be subject to penalties. You will automatically receive a one-year license suspension. If you have received a DUI within the last ten years, your license may be suspended for 2 years. Your eligibility for a work-restriction license will also be jeopardized if you refuse to take a blood, breath or urine test.
If I am facing DUI charges, why do I need a lawyer?
If you have been arrested for a DUI charge, you are far less likely to face harsh penalties if you avail yourself of legal help from a qualified attorney. The laws regulating drunk driving are complex and anyone who is seeking to lessen penalties for drunk driving charges would benefit from an attorney who is qualified in the specific area of DUI cases. A DUI attorney can challenge the reliability of breath, blood and urine tests. If they were improperly administered, the prosecution's case will be affected severely.
