DUI LAWYER IN LONG BEACH, CA
LONG BEACH DUI ATTORNEYS FIGHTING TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS
When you have been arrested for DUI, you need to do what you can to protect your rights and your driving privileges. In the state of California, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. If you are found to be driving while your BAC is at or above the legal limit, then you will be arrested, and you could face serious penalties if convicted.
Your freedom is very important, and you owe it to yourself to do everything you can to defend your freedoms and constitutional rights. At the Law Offices of Damone & Schroeder, our Long Beach DUI attorney is fully prepared to conduct a complete evaluation of your arrest, as well as every factor leading up to that moment, in order to ensure that you have a comprehensive defense. Our specialized team of Long Beach DUI attorneys can help you through the process and ensure the proper decisions are made to help resolve your situation.
THE CALIFORNIA DUI PROCESS
Being arrested for DUI in California can set in motion a complex series of events, including hearings, pre-trial motions, and police custody. If you have allegedly failed a chemical or field sobriety test, you will be placed under arrest.
What follows in the DUI process usually includes:
- Booking—done by police at the station where you will be fingerprinted, photographed, and jailed. You may be released soon from jail and given a court date without having to post bail.
- Court hearing—you will go to court if the DA's office files a criminal complaint against you. Here, you will be advised of your charges and enter a plea.
- DMV hearing
—your driver's license will be suspended unless you request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest. An attorney from our firm can work to defend your right to drive.
- Trial—the prosecution needs to prove beyond doubt that you were impaired while driving. Here, our firm can challenge your DUI and work to have your charges dropped or reduced.
- Sentencing—the judge will sentence you if you plead guilty or are convicted. You could be granted probation or be sent to jail, depending on the circumstances of your charge.
