Put Experience On Your Side
In the state of California, any individual whose Blood Alcohol Level is .08 or higher may be found guilty of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. Former LAPD officer and a practicing criminal defense attorney Zachary McCready possesses an in-depth understanding of the issues pertaining to both DUIs and DWIs. This knowledge extends to police procedures such as the use of breathalyzers (including the arresting officer’s proficiency and training using the device and how often the equipment has been properly calibrated), blood tests, challenging the administration and accuracy of field sobriety tests, and numerous other factors.
When arrested for driving under the influence, the DMV is immediately notified and will conduct an independent investigation and hold an administrative hearing to review your case. Because you have an extremely brief window of time within which you must appear before the DMV, you could face the risk of losing your license for an extensive period of time. That's why Attorney Zack McCready provides complete legal counsel and assistance with all DMV Administrative cases.
Do I have to submit to a blood or breath test?
Under California Law, if you are suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, under implied consent laws you are required to submit to a blood, breath or urine test pursuant to receiving your driver’s license. Failure to comply will result in the automatic suspension of your driver’s license for a year if this is your first offense. Implied consent laws also require that you comply with an officer’s request to view your driver’s license and insurance information. However, while the proceedings are mandatory, you are not required to submit to field sobriety tests or eye tests. Additionally, if your job requires that you be licensed by the state, you risk losing your license and your livelihood. Do not let this happen to you.
