San Francisco Bay Area DUI Defense Attorneys
The DUI defense attorneys at the Bay Area Law Center are committed to helping you avoid harsh DUI penalties, keep your job, and get your driver’s license back.
If you’re facing DUI criminal charges, it is time to act immediately. The California DMV requires that defendants request an administrative hearing within 10 days of a DUI arrest.
If you have been charged with a felony DUI or as a first-time offender, you will need reliable, trustworthy, and experienced legal advice. You need a team behind you, fighting for your freedom, your license to drive, and the well-being of your family.
The two main DUI charges are California Vehicle Code sections 23152(a) and (b). Vehicle Code §23152(a) is the general charge for driving under the influence, and VC §23152(b) makes it a misdemeanor violation to drive with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.08% or more. California Vehicle Code 23152(a) applies to both driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. California Vehicle Code sections 23152(b) only applies to driving under the influence of alcohol.
There are several different ways to defend against a DUI charge, and the experienced attorneys at the Bay Area Law Center will work with you to present your best case.

There are hundreds of different ways an excellent DUI defense attorney can attack the charges against you. Some of these tactics include:
- Police did not observe the defendant driving
- No probable cause for the police to stop the car
- Too much time between the observed driving and the chemical test
- The defendant passed all field sobriety tests (FSTs)
- The defendant tested below .08% BAC at the time of driving
- The alcohol testing equipment was defective or was not calibrated correctly
- The police report does not comport with the law
- The police officer failed to provide Miranda warnings when required to do
- The arresting officer lacked sufficient training to operate alcohol testing equipment
The list goes on and on…These are but a fraction of the possible attacks that a defense attorney could use that may lead to the reduction or dismissal of a DUI charge. But you have to act quickly. Some of these tactics are time sensitive, and the attorney needs to request hearings and evidence right away.
