DUI/Driving Under the Influence Attorney
Being arrested for “drunk driving” or driving under the influence is both a frightening and confusing experience. Most likely your car was towed and you were booked into County Jail. The officer seized your driver’s license and now you have a pink piece paper—a temporary license. Although your court date may be more than a month away, the clock is ticking! You have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to schedule a hearing with the DMV regarding the possible suspension of your driver’s license. The DMV will review your case independent of anything that happens in court and may impose an administrative suspension regardless of the outcome in court. Contact the Law Office of Jay S. Finnecy IMMEDIATELY to schedule your free consultation.

Most people are surprised to learn they will actually be charged with two separate offenses: Vehicle Code Section 23152(a)—Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Vehicle Code Section 23152(b)—Driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration of .08% or Higher. Many people mistakenly believe they cannot be prosecuted if their blood alcohol level is below .08%, but nothing could be farther from the truth. If the evidence contained within the police report describing your manner of driving, demeanor, physical appearance, and performance on “Standardized Field Sobriety Tests” (SFTS or FSTs) suggests that your physical and/or mental abilities were “impaired” by alcohol, you can be convicted of VC23152(a)—Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
