San Jose DUI Defense Lawyers Aggressively Protecting your Rights
The police may stop you at a DUI checkpoint or they may pull you over. They may force you to complete an FST (field sobriety test). They may asses your BAC (blood alcohol concentration). No matter how much evidence they compile, our attorneys can protect you from a DUI conviction and dramatically reduce your possibility of facing the most severe penalties.
Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, we may show that your initial stop was illegal, that your blood was tested incorrectly, that the arresting officer did not observe your rights or that evidence was mishandled. Our defense lawyers will find the errors in the case against you and try to get your charges dropped. If we cannot do that, we can fight to get your charges significantly reduced.
