30 Ways To Fight Your California DUI…And Win
California DUI cases are rarely hopeless, even though the penalties for being convicted of a California DUI can be severe under California Drunk Driving Laws. DUI convictions are almost never inevitable. Clients retain our California DUI defense attorneys for one reason: they want to fight the case. And win.
The CA DUI prosecutor will point to several factors as evidence that you were drunk driving: poor navigation of your vehicle, an odor of alcohol flowing from the breath, the appearance of being intoxicated, poor performance on the field sobriety test and, of course, the results of the blood or breath alcohol test. Yet each "piece of DUI evidence" is ambiguous, subject to multiple interpretations, unreliable, based on faulty assumptions and open to attack.

California Drunk Driving laws vary, and the law is changed every year. Unfortunately, hundreds of innocent people get convicted of DUI throughout California every court day, often by pleading guilty even in the face of spurious prosecution evidence. Hopefully, you won’t be one of them.
California Drivers Rights card from DUI Lawyer Darryl Genis
If you drink, wait 12 hours before driving. If stopped by a policeman:
1. Provide him with your drivers license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration.
2. DO NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS BEYOND WHAT IS ON THOSE DOCUMENTS.
3. DO NOT TAKE ANY BALANCE, COORDINATION OR MENTAL AGILITY TESTS.
4. DO NOT TAKE ANY PORTABLE BREATH TESTS (unless you are under 21 years old).
5. INSIST UPON A BLOOD TEST
Remember, the police will do and say anything to get you to deviate from this advice, but remember: they are the ones who want to arrest you. If they saw you drive, and smelled alcohol on your breath, you are not going to talk your way out of anything. You can't prove the breath tests were wrong, so DON'T TAKE THEM. If the cops are going to arrest you anyway, make them do it with less, instead of more evidence. Make them do it with a blood test so they can't cheat when they write their report (they already know your results with breath, but not with blood, so they can't make the symptoms fit the test scores. Make them do it with a blood test so you don't have to take their word on the results. Their labs make mistakes daily. You can test the blood independently.
