Facing DUI Charges?

Brehmer Law proudly represents individuals who have been accused of the following:

If a driver has one or more prior DUI convictions within the last 10 years, this will have a serious impact on any current charges. A second, third, fourth, or subsequent DUI offense may result in steep penalties and possibly felony charges. A driver may also face felony charges if accused of causing a car accident that leaves another person injured.

California has a “zero tolerance” policy to underage drinking and driving. This means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, they will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there is no erratic driving or other any other indication of drunk driving.

If you are pulled over and charged with DUI in the state of California, but reside in another state, California law enforcement does not have the right to take your driver’s license. Instead, they will issue you a notice that in 30 days, your privilege to drive in the state of California will be suspended.

Defending Your Reputation & Future

Our firm has developed various strategies that may be used to challenge DUI charges in both criminal court, and at a DMV hearing. Even in situations where a driver is accused of failing a breath or blood test, there may be ways for an experienced attorney to conclusively prove that these test results are inaccurate, and should not be allowed in court. Field sobriety tests have inherent faults and may also be improperly administered. Questioning or challenging the arresting officer is another effective strategy. No matter what the circumstances, our firm will carefully review your case and uncover any details that will support your defense.
