Long Beach DUI Test Lawyers

Breathalyzer and Sobriety Tests

You may find yourself in the unfortunate situation, like many others before you, to have recently been accused of driving under the influence (DUI) and have come to believe that you don't stand a chance in the courtroom so you should just plead guilty. You had a high blood alcohol content (BAC) on the breathalyzer, performed poorly on the sobriety tests, admitted to drinking more than you should have, etc. and you believe that such evidence is indisputable, but that is far from the truth.

It is not at all uncommon for police officers to commit procedural or technical errors and even violate your constitutional rights under the United States and California Constitution during DUI arrests. If these errors exist, a knowledgeable Long Beach DUI defense attorney will be able to expose such errors, prevent a damaging license suspension, discredit the prosecution's case, and get you a positive outcome on your case.

Unlike other inexperienced lawyers or attorneys who do not know DUI laws well and will tell you to just plead guilty, we do not give up on our clients. When we take on a DUI case, we face the challenge head on and work our hardest to make sure that our clients get the best possible results. Don't just give up with your DUI case, please call us at (866) 431-2637for a free initial consultation to see what we can do for you.

How Can I Dispute the Field Sobriety Test Results?

Most people do not know that they have the right to refuse a field sobriety test (FST) after they are pulled over for driving under the influence and the officer requests that they perform these tests. However, police often administer field sobriety tests without telling the suspect that they don't have to do them and have a right to refuse the FSTs... Although under California's implied consent laws you are required to give a breath or a blood sample after you are arrested, why give the police, DMV and prosecution additional "evidence" by answering the officers questions as to what you had to drink, where you were, etc., then doing FSTs that can be misinterpreted by an arresting officer and oftentimes designed to make you look bad and fail when you don't even have to do them? If you did the field sobriety tests because you weren't told that you didn't have to, the results can oftentimes be disputed. Because FSTs are subjective and depend on an officer's background, training and experience or lack thereof, your defense attorney can make the argument that the tests were conducted incorrectly or in improper settings. For example, if the officer did not explain the tests properly, if there was inadequate lighting or uneven ground in the area where the tests took place, an argument could be made that the tests could not have possibly been performed correctly.

How Can I Dispute the Breathalyzer Results?

Neither humans nor machines are perfect. Just because the breathalyzer recorded a high BAC does not necessarily mean you were over the legal limit. Errors can and do occur all the time with machines in general and in DUI cases in particular. Sometimes a breathalyzer records inaccurate results due to mechanical failure and bad maintenance. Other times, the police officer who administers the test does not know how to do so properly. A knowledgeable DUI defense attorney should know how to analyze breathalyzer records and pinpoint errors to present as evidence of the defendant's innocence.
