If you or someone you know has been arrested for a DUI in Napa or Sonoma County, the first thing that you should do is speak with an experienced Napa or Sonoma DUI attorney. In addition to license suspension, hefty fines, and a potential jail sentence, there are a number of valid reasons that you should fight a drunk-driving charge. While drunk-driving cases can be complex, they are not impossible to win.
Speaking with a knowledgeable Napa or Sonoma DUI attorney is the first step in creating a strong DUI defense. Furthermore, you have only ten (10) days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in order to avoid an automatic suspension of your driver's license. As highly-skilled drunk driving defense attorneys in Napa, we can expeditiously and effectively maneuver through both pretrial and trial processes so that the best possible outcome is obtained. We will fully review your case and identify any legal challenges to all or part of your DUI charge.
Police Make Mistakes – Napa DUI Defense
The police are not infallible, and during the arrest process they may make mistakes that a skilled Napa DUI defense attorney may uncover. At the Napa DUI defense law firm, we have been able to uncover all kinds of police mistakes, from not having a valid reason for stopping drivers to errors in administering chemical tests. If police errors are found and can be proven, we may be able to get evidence suppressed, including chemical test results.
The bottom line is that yes, a DUI charge is a serious matter, but not one without a defense. There are a number of defenses that can be used to obtain a successful outcome in your case.
