DUI Defense Information
Defending a driving under the influence (DUI) charge in Torrance and South Bay takes extraordinary skill, dedication and knowledge on the part of a DUI defense attorney. At Gold & Witham, our attorneys understand that your driver’s license and freedom are on the line if you are facing drunk driving charges. When a
Torrance DUI attorney at our firm takes on a new case, he will approach it with the point of view that you are innocent. This viewpoint gives the attorney the ability to see the whole picture and explore all possible defenses for the specific charges the client faces.
A Torrance DUI defense strategy may be built on any one or more of a number of specific areas of the case. Most often, this involves physical evidence in the form of breath test or blood test results. A DUI defense lawyer who has a number of cases under his belt will be able to know specifically what to look for in building a defense on
breathalyzer test, blood test or
field sobriety test results, as well as police officer observations. A lawyer will also question the legality of the initial police stop, arrest and testing itself.
A Torrance DUI charge will usually consist of two separate offenses. First, that the driver’s abilities were impaired because he or she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Second, that he or she had a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or above. For these reasons, field sobriety tests, witness testimony and officer observations will be most important in a charge under the first offense listed above. Chemical test evidence will be most important in an offense concerning a driver’s blood alcohol level.
