Do I have to agree to field sobriety testing?

Technically, you do not have to agree to perform any field sobriety tests. Remember that these tests are not proven to be a foolproof way to determine intoxication. The arresting officer will likely ask you to take a Breathalyzer or blood test instead.

Is Breathalyzer testing perfect?

No. Breathalyzer is not a perfect test and can be affected by a number of factors, including the faulty equipment, calibration, and improperly trained officers administering the test. Breathalyzers should be considered more of an estimate than an exact result.

Should I plead guilty to DUI charges?

Absolutely not. There are a number of circumstances which go into a DUI arrest and you could have your charges dismissed. It is important that you work with an Atascadero DUI lawyer who can give you the best chance of a not-guilty verdict.

What are the penalties for DUI?

The exact penalties you could face for a DUI conviction depend on the nature of the charges and if it is your first offense or a subsequent offense. We can sit down and go over your case to make sure you understand the nature of your charges.

How can a DUI lawyer help?

An experienced DUI attorney can work with you to ensure your rights are protected. We can investigate the details of your arrest, including the original testing methods and result, as well as any possible procedural errors.
