Schweitzer & Davidian DUI

DUI Attorney in Fresno, CA

Aggressive DUI Legal Representation

A number of factors are involved in a drunk driving arrest, many of them involving the science of testing for blood alcohol content (BAC). At Schweitzer & Davidian, we have a thorough understanding of the proper means to determine a driver's BAC, as well as the numerous mistakes that are made by law enforcement officers that can result in charges of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs being dismissed.

We have received training on field sobriety testing and toxicology reports from some of the sharpest minds in the field. As a result, we are able to review the details of a DUI arrest and quickly spot any weaknesses or improper procedure that will assist us in your defense.

In cases where police follow proper procedure and the evidence appears firm, we are often able to negotiate for reduced charges and keep a DUI (also commonly referred to as driving while intoxicated or DWI) off of your driving record if you do not have a previous DUI conviction.

Our Fresno DUI attorneys are responsive and available for any of your legal needs. Get started with a free consultation when you call today.

Penalties That Accompany a DUI Conviction in California

California law states that an individual who operates a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08 or higher is guilty of DUI. If you face DUI charges, it is important to realize that it is not treated as a minor offense. Heightened awareness of the dangers that drunk drivers present has led to increased penalties in California and nationwide. A conviction could result in your license being suspended or restricted, and most certainly will come with significant financial penalties and an increased car insurance rate. Subsequent convictions may result in jail sentences and license revocation.

Fresno DUI Attorneys Who Minimize the Impact of Your Charges

The defense strategies in DUI cases are as varied as the arrests themselves. A lot depends on the circumstances of the arrest, including:
