Defending Against DUI Charges in California
When we receive phone calls and emails about DUI charges, the most common question is, “How can a DUI defense lawyer can me off?” The next question is, “What defenses can I use against a DUI?”
How Can I Get Out of a DUI?
Getting out of a DUI requires the prosecutor to drop the charges or the judge to dismiss the case. In either situation, the charges do not move forward.
A DWI attorney can explain the various methods of pursuing a dismissal in your DUI case. Certain defense strategies can lead a judge to dismiss the case. For example, through a motion to dismiss, we may establish prior to trial that there is insufficient evidence to prove you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.
We may convince the prosecutor to drop the charges, or we may place the prosecutor in the position where dropping the charges is the reasonable thing to do. For example, we may find the police found evidence against you by violating your constitutional rights. We would file a motion to have this evidence ruled inadmissible. Without this evidence, the prosecutor may not have a strong enough case to rationalize the use of their time and resources in bringing the case to trial.
