Do I need to hire a Los Angeles DUI lawyer?

A Los Angeles DUI attorney can help you if you have been arrested for driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The basic offense of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) requires a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. In California, those under the age of 21 need only to have BAC of .01 for a DUI, which is the same amount for repeat offenders over 21 years of age. For drivers under the age of 18, California has a “no tolerance” policy.

What can I expect if I’ve been charged with a DUI in Los Angeles?

Most drunk driving offenses are prosecuted as misdemeanors, however, it is possible for a DUI to be charged as a felony if a person is injured or you have four or more prior DUIs on your driving record. The basic penalties for a California DUI vary depending on the number of offense. Typically, each offense carries the loss of driving privileges, fines, and in some cases, jail terms.

California law has an implied consent law, which simply means that if a person refuses to take a chemical test, that person will be subjected to a fine and automatic license suspension. If it is your first offense, the license suspension will be 1 year; if is it your second offense, the license suspension will be for two years; if it your third offense, the license suspension will be for three years.

A DUI can adversely impact almost every aspect of your life including, your job prospects and your personal and professional reputation. California prosecutors rarely show leniency to DUI offenders, so having a Los Angeles DUI attorney on your side can be very important to your defense.
