Beverly Hills DUI Attorney
Retain the Aggressive Defense You Need
Were you or someone you love recently charged with drunk driving? You need
to take immediate action to prevent losing your driver’s license
and ward off the much worse consequences that a conviction can bring.
A Beverly Hills DUI lawyer from my firm can offer you the legal advice
you need and fight vigorously on your behalf to challenge you DUI, no
matter the specifics of your case.
At Jay Jaffe, A Professional Corporation, I have defended drivers against
DUI charges for more than 40 years. I understand how a reasonable person
can easily be mistaken about whether he or she is "good to drive,"
and I work to ensure that person receives every benefit of every doubt.
I'm familiar with the technical limitations of chemical testing and
am prepared to uncover any irregularities in the forensic evidence presented
against you. I closely scrutinize police reports and question officers
to determine whether there was probable cause to make a stop in the first place.
What do I stand to lose from a conviction?
Your first DUI conviction can come with the following penalties:
- A $390 fine with over $1,000 in other penalty assessments
- 48 hour jail sentence or 90-day license restriction
- Additional 4-month license suspension by the DMV
- Mandatory attendance at a 3-month alcohol-treatment program for blood alcohol
of .20% or higher
These represent the minimum penalties form a first DUI and assume no bodily
injury results from any accident which may have occurred.
I can Challenge Forensic Evidence & Introduce Reasonable Doubt
Forensic evidence is only as good as the methods and devices used for gathering
and measuring it. Breathalyzers must be maintained regularly. Blood and
urine evidence must be collected, stored and processed according to strict
protocols. Any lapses in the handling of chemical evidence can and should
introduce reasonable doubt. When it comes to forensic evidence, as a seasoned
Beverly Hills DUI attorney I challenge the prosecution's case on every
link in the chain of custody.
