Our DUI / DWI lawyers represent many clients charged with driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) or drunk driving in Alameda County and throughout the Bay Area. Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of California DUI laws and a track record of obtaining exceptional results for our clients, including dismissal of charges and reduction of charges to less serious offenses.
Drunk driving charges carry criminal consequences that can include a fine, jail time, and a probationary period. A DUI arrest also has serious consequences for your driver’s license. Those penalties come not only from the criminal DUI charge but also from a related administrative action by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
In DUI cases, it’s very important for your lawyer to investigate technical DUI defenses, including the conduct of the police officer who stopped you. If you were not stopped in a legitimate and lawful manner, or if the field sobriety test was not administered properly, we may be able to get the charges dismissed. Our lawyers will also examine blood test results or breath test records to see if we can have the evidence thrown out. We work regularly with experts in blood tests and breathalyzer maintenance and calibration who will testify in your defense.Contact Bonjour, Thorman, Burns & Dahm immediately for an initial free consultation if you or a loved one has been arrested or is under investigation. For our in-custody clients, we help arrange bail, make motions to have you released on your own recognizance, or draw up property bonds in high bond cases which can save thousands of dollars in bail bond premiums.
