San Jose DUI Attorney Recommendations

Tips for Facing DUI Charges

DUI cases are considered serious charges in California. Harsh penalties, a criminal record, and possible damage to your reputation can result from such criminal offenses. Doing nothing, entering a guilty plea, and hoping for the best can prove disastrous for you. You need the dedicated defense of an attorney to protect your freedom.

At The Law Offices of Adam Allen Arant, Esq., our lead DUI lawyer in San Jose is highly skilled at defending DUI cases. Some of our recommendations for successful DUI defense include:
  • Be polite and respectful to law enforcement when pulled over. Give the officer your license, address, phone number and insurance information. But exercise your 5th Amendment right to not answer any potentially incriminating questions until you have an attorney present.
  • You have the legal right to decline taking field sobriety tests.
  • If you are over 21, you can legally decline a handheld or portable breath test. If you are under 21, you are legally required to consent to the portable breath test, or risk immediate suspension of your license.
  • If arrested, contact a highly qualified DUI attorney as soon as possible.
  • Once at the police station, agree to the required chemical test (breath or blood). If you refuse to do so, you face license suspension, possible jail time, and the refusal can be used as evidence by prosecutors in your DUI case.
  • Make sure you or your attorney calls the DMV Driver Safety Office within 10 days of your arrest, and requests a DMV hearing, to purse license reinstatement.
