CA DUI Attorneys

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious offense in the state of California, governed by stringent laws codified under Sections 23152 and 23153 of the California Vehicle Code. The consequences of a DUI conviction can be devastating, affecting both your personal and professional life. At Lee Law Group, we specialize in providing top-tier representation for those charged with DUI offenses.

In California, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08% for most drivers and 0.04% for commercial drivers. Penalties for a DUI offense can range from fines to imprisonment. First-time offenders may face fines up to $2,000, a six-month license suspension, and a DUI program. Subsequent offenses incur harsher penalties, including mandatory jail time.

DUI laws in California necessitate an understanding of the types of charges one may face:

  • Misdemeanor DUI: This charge is commonly applied to first-time offenders and generally results in less severe penalties, such as short-term jail sentences or fines.
  • Felony DUI: A more serious classification, felony DUI is applied in cases involving bodily harm to others or when the defendant has had multiple offenses within a ten-year period. Penalties often include extended jail time and larger fines.
  • Drug-Related DUI: This is applied when a driver is impaired due to the consumption of illegal drugs or prescription medications. The laws and penalties mirror those of alcohol-related DUIs but may require additional evidence for conviction.

When facing a DUI charge, the legal defense strategies employed can be the difference between conviction and acquittal. Lee Law Group’s criminal defense lawyer in California utilizes various legal defenses to counter DUI charges:  The strategies we employ are tailored to each case, ranging from questioning the validity of sobriety tests to scrutinizing the arresting officer’s conduct.
