Fresno, California DUI Attorney

Aggressive Defense For Your DUI Case

Being charged with a DUI in California is a serious matter with serious consequences. If you are convicted, you may lose your authorization to drive, pay outrageous insurance premiums and even spend time in jail. When your liberty is on the line, you need a serious DUI attorney to aggressively defend you in court. With more than 36 years of experience in handling DUI cases, Mr. Drandell has forged his reputation as an innovator in the field of DUI defense, and is known for going the extra mile to ensure that clients get the best possible results.

How to Protect Yourself From the Police

If you have been pulled over by the police, don’t let yourself become a victim. Follow these six tips and keep yourself out of jail:

  1. Do Not Be Intimidated By the Police. If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Rather than giving them that opportunity, remain calm and be polite. Conducting yourself in this manner is a great way to ensure that police officers will leave you alone.
  2. Keep Your Glove-Box Clean. Because fumbling through compartments to find your registration or insurance can easily be misinterpreted as intoxication, you should always strive to keep your glove box or center console neat and organized. This allows you to quickly and confidently grab your documentation and present it to a police officer.
  3. Do Not Give Police Consent to Search Your Car. Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction. Consequently, you should not allow the officer to perform a search without a proper warrant to do so.
  4. Take the Sobriety Test. Due to a malfunctioning breath analyzing machine or an inappropriately administered blood/ urine test, many DUI defendants have been found not guilty. Also, you may still blow under the legal limit.
  5. Get a Blood Test After Release. Because of their fast and inexpensive employment, alcohol detection devices can be unreliable and malfunction. Don’t go to jail because of a broken machine. It’s a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) with a proper blood test after arrest. At trial, your attorney can use that evidence to raise possible defenses.
  6. Contact a DUI attorney immediately.
