Los Angeles DUI Lawyer

Drunk Driving Attorneys in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California

When a person drives a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above the legal limit, they will be charged with drunk driving. In California, people will be charged with DUI if their BAC level reaches or exceeds .08. DUI charges can also be filed against a person who drives under the influence of drugs. This includes both illegal drugs and prescription or over-the-counter medications. When a drug impairs a person’s ability to safely operate a vehicle, he or she will be charged with DUI, regardless if the drug in question was legal or illegal. Related: DUI Laws in California.

Penalties for Drunk Driving

People who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs not only violate the law, but they also endanger the lives of innocent people around them. Law enforcement officials take DUI offenses very seriously, and are determined to see those who drive under the influence held accountable for their actions. To teach drunk driving offenders a lesson, prosecutors handling DUI cases often seek the toughest penalties possible. People charged with DUI could be sentenced to time in jail, large fines, probation, driver’s license suspension, vehicle impoundment, mandatory alcohol treatment, community service, and a mark on their permanent record. To protect yourself from these and other penalties, it’s best to hire a skilled Los Angeles drunk driving attorney to defend you throughout the criminal process.
