TOP JOBS RUINED BY DUI CONVICTION!!!
February 1, 2016

HIGH PROFILE POSITIONS Certain professions are more vulnerable to a DUI conviction or DUI license suspension. Sometimes just the stigma of a DUI can ruin a person’s job. This is usually the case when the person in question has a job that has a lot of public exposure. For instance, if a person is on the Board of a major corporation or charity, a DUI arrest can reflect negatively on the entity. This also applies to people whose job is not as high profile as the jobs discussed above, but instead these individuals are required to be held in esteem.… Read More

SO YOU THINK YOU’RE DRIVING HANDS FREE???
January 26, 2016

HISTORY LESSON Before I address how the hands free law is enforced, I will explain why it was created. Several years ago the California Legislature passed a law for the stated purpose of protecting the public from drivers who were distracted because they were using a cell phone while driving. Please keep in mind that this law did not outlaw talking on the phone while driving. Instead, it prevented a person from holding the phone while driving. A person is required to drive “hands free” of the telephone. DISTRACTION What is somewhat interesting about this law is the theory that… Read More

January 18, 2016

VALET OR SELF PARK Just imagine you go out to meet your friends for dinner at a new restaurant, hotel or bar. When you get there you see they have valet parking. You debate parking your vehicle rather than paying a valet to park your car. The valet fee is under $5, which is a plus. You just had your car cleaned which is also a plus.

SO, YOU GOT A HOVERBOARD TO AVOID A DUI
December 29, 2015

HISTORY LESSON Before discussing the current state of DUI prosecution, we must first address the original intent of DUI laws. Simply put, the public demanded DUI laws be put on the books and strictly enforced due to public safety issues. Based upon the concern for potential harm that can be caused by a several ton vehicle travelling on the open roads it was argued that a car is a deadly weapon. It was further argued that a person driving a car under the influence of alcohol (and later expanded to include drugs) was as unsafe as a loaded gun. This… Read More

WHAT ARE THE DMV ZERO TOLERANCE BLUES?
November 25, 2015

DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES (DMV) Most people think that so long as their blood alcohol level is below .08 they can avoid the consequences of an Administrative Per Se DUI suspension with the DMV. A majority of people are correct in this assumption. The .08 blood alcohol standard generally applies to individuals who are 21 years old and above.

EXCEPTIONS TO RULE However, there are always exceptions to a general rule. For instance, if… Read More

Technically speaking, an expungement is a procedure in which post-conviction; a person can petition the court to withdraw a guilty or no contest plea and dismiss the charge that the person had plead to. PLEAD GUILTY? “FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS GUILTY”tm Many people choose to plead guilty or no contest to a DUI based upon the understanding that in the future they can petition the court for an expungement.
