We Can Help with Your DMV Hearing
Assuming you contact your DUI attorney in Santa Monica CA within 10 days of your arrest, we can help you request a DMV hearing. There are two reasons absolutely everyone accused of a DUI should request this hearing. First of all, the hearing gives us the opportunity to contest the DMV license suspension, which will otherwise go into effect in 30 days. Additionally, the hearing gives us a chance to request and review the prosecution’s evidence, which helps us prepare for the criminal case.
Sobriety Tests Can Be Challenged
Just because you have failed a sobriety test does not necessarily mean the prosecution has what they need to convict you of DUI. Sobriety tests are actually vulnerable to all kinds of flaws and errors that could invalidate or at least cast doubt upon their results.
For example, it’s easy to fail a test requiring you to balance on one leg if you are sick or tired, or if the pavement is slippery or uneven. It’s also important to remember that there are many medical conditions and even dietary factors that can cause individuals to have alcohol-like compounds on their breath and blow an incorrect reading on a breathalyzer test.
Fortunately for you, Lisa Mattern has over 20 years of experience exploiting the vulnerabilities in sobriety testing. As your DUI attorney in Santa Monica CA, she will not let the results of a flawed or incorrect test be used against you.
