First Time DUI Lawyer in San Jose
If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI offense and it is your first time, you probably have a lot of questions about what will happen next and what you are likely to be facing. A knowledgeable and experienced San Jose DUI attorney from our firm can not only answer your questions but can also assist you in building a dedicated defense of your DUI charges.
Once you have been stopped by law enforcement officers, it is important to know what will happen from this point. Although law enforcement officers must have a valid reason for stopping you, once stopped they need only to observe erratic behavior and smell alcohol on your breath in order to make an arrest. As a first time offender you may or may not be aware that you do not have to submit to a test at the scene of the arrest or answer any questions without your lawyer present.
You must however submit to a test once you are taken to the station or your license will be suspended for one year. Any errors made by law enforcement officers may help to reduce your charges or in some cases even get your case thrown out, but if you are convicted you may expect to face tough DUI penalties including:
- Jail time-48 hours to 6 months
- License suspension-up to 6 months depending upon on BAC
- Monetary fines- up to $1,000
- Probation-1 to 5 years
- Mandatory DUI classes-3 to 9 months
