Ventura First DUI Arrest Defense Attorneys
Although California authorities take all DUI/drunk driving cases very seriously, a first-time offender may be able to minimize fines and/or jail time and effectively challenge a suspended license with the help of an experienced DUI defense attorney at the Southern California law firm of Bamieh & Erickson, PLC.
Driving under the influence is never a good idea. Regardless of accuracy questions surrounding the use of field Breathalyzers, if your BAC (blood alcohol content) registers a .08 or above when you blow, you will be arrested for DUI.
The consequences of a DUI can be severe, even for a first offense. Underage drinking and driving and other DUI enhancements may carry especially severe penalties. If you are facing a DUI charge or your child under the age of 21 has been arrested for drunk driving, contact an experienced DUI defense lawyer at Bamieh & Erickson today.
