Charged with a DUI?
If you are facing criminal charges that pertain to driving under the influence, having experienced representation is not only desirable it could make the ultimate difference between success and failure. For this reason, if you have recently been arrested - no matter whether it was for a first time offense, a third offense or even if you are facing elevated charges for a blood alcohol concentration way beyond the legal limit, hiring a knowledgeable attorney should be one of the first steps that is taken.
At the firm, Mr. Geller understands the ins and outs of the criminal process and is prepared to provide clients with hard-hitting and aggressive assistance when it is needed most. He understands what is on the line with the possibility of conviction and knows how detrimental consequences (such as driver's license suspension) can be. He is therefore fully dedicated to ensuring that clients receive the high-quality and hard-hitting representation that you truly deserve.
Even if you feel that your claim is hopeless, it is important to remember that this is simply not the case. Just because you have been criminally charged does not mean that you have been convicted. He recognizes that there are defenses that can be utilized; he is fully prepared to spend the time and effort in understanding the details of your case and building a defense that is uniquely tailored to your claim and hard-hitting even in the face of obstacles.
Common defenses that can be utilized include determining whether the initial police stop was lawful, analyzing the machine used for the breath test (for example, was it calibrated properly?) and even looking into the validity of a blood test. Although more accurate than a breath test, there are still mistakes that can occur (such as being stored incorrectly) that can skew the results. In cases of this nature, having a knowledgeable lawyer is extremely important towards looking into each and every detail.
Defending your Los Angeles DUI, Orange County DUI, or San Bernardino DUI Charge
If you are found guilty of a DUI charge in Los Angeles County, Pasadena, Glendale, Orange County, San Bernardino County, or Riverside County, you may face additional license suspensions apart from what could occur through an Administrative Per Se Hearing by the DMV. You may also face additional jail time, community service, Cal Trans, seminars and programs, and fines, depending upon the amount of alcohol found in your system and whether or not you have a prior DUI arrest and conviction. Additionally, new DUI laws will take effect on July 1, 2010 which could affect your ability to drive.
As an experienced DUI attorney, Mr. Geller works with and is knowledgeable in all aspects of DUI cases, including DUI penalties, DUI arrests and DMV hearings. DMV hearings are especially important, and obtaining a victory at this hearing could mean that the driver gets to keep his/her license. The hearing also provides an opportunity to question the witnesses involved in the case in order to obtain leverage for negotiation in court. A DUI defense lawyer can provide you with a strong defense at this hearing to win back your driver's license and to use the process to your advantage. If you feel that your
blood & breath tests were flawed, we can further investigate your case to expose possible errors. Both the DMV and the courts will look at the evidence from these tests to determine if alcohol was involved in the case and whether the arrest was lawful, so it is important that the information was accurately recorded in the first place. Contact our firm immediately if you failed your
field sobriety tests and are looking to fight your DUI charges.
