Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I was arrested and charged with DUI. Is there any way I can avoid a license suspension?

A: Each case is unique and has a different set of circumstances surrounding it. If you are facing a license suspension, it is crucial to be represented by an experienced attorney. If there is a possibility in your case to protect your ability to drive, the attorneys at Brehmer Law will find it. Call the office for a free initial consultation in your case.

Q: I have been charged with a DUI and have already had one conviction. What can I do?

A: A second or subsequent DUI conviction is a very serious legal matter in the state of California. If you have a previous DUI conviction within the last 10 years, you may be facing a mandatory alcohol or drug program, up to $1,000 in fines, a year in jail, an ignition interlock device for up to three years and possible license restrictions. If you are facing a second conviction, it is absolutely crucial that you are represented by an aggressive DUI defense attorney from Brehmer Law to fight for you.

Q: I only had one glass of wine, but I was arrested for DUI. What should I do?

A: There is no testing method that is 100% accurate. Determining the amount of alcohol in a person’s blood is an inexact science at best. It is a very complicated process that requires an in-depth knowledge of the equipment and procedures used to obtain a “result.” These results are rarely accurate. Even if everything is working properly, a breathalyzer testing device may have inherent inaccuracies of as much as .02%. The machine may not be up to date on required maintenance, was not properly operated, or the device may have a faulty history. It is crucial that you have an experienced and resourceful DUI defense attorney fighting for you to discover what went wrong in your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test. Other factors such as age, weight, gender, disease, illness, body temperature, partition ratio, and others must be accounted for accurate test results, but are rarely taken into consideration.
