    about duis in san diego - why you need experienced san diego dui defense

    DUI charges in California must be taken seriously. Know these vital DUI facts:

    • If you’re charged with a DUI, you only have ten days to get in contact with the DMV about your license. Otherwise, it will be suspended.
    • California law requires that drivers submit to either a breathalyzer or blood analysis.
    • Breathalyzer results can often be successfully contested in court. (Was the equipment properly calibrated? Was it used correctly?)
    • If you are convicted of a DUI, you face anywhere from 48 hours to six months.
    • You’ll be fined anywhere from $360 to $1,000 for your first offense.

    Second and third-time DUI offenders will face stiffer penalties.

    Beyond the possibility of a license suspension or revocation and hefty fines, San Diego area DUIs will cost you even more:

    • The judge may recommend counseling or education programs ranging from three months to six months. These will be at your expense.
    • Your auto insurance rates will skyrocket. Your insurance premiums may triple.
    • You will also need to carry SR-22 insurance. It’s a special endorsement your insurer will add to your auto insurance policy, also at your own cost.

    San Diego DUI laws & punishment vary depending on the circumstances of the DUI and whether you have had prior convictions, particularly within the last ten years. Know that DUIs stay on your California driving record for ten years! You will be unable to get any “safe driver discounts” on your auto insurance for the next decade if you’re convicted.

    What to Do if You’ve Been Arrested in San Diego for Criminal Charges

    If you’re accused of a crime in San Diego, exercise your right to legal counsel. Your behavior during this early stage is vital to your success. Never act belligerent or irresponsible to police officers, but don’t offer them any extra information either. In a businesslike manner, provide them with your name and ask for a lawyer. Stay silent after that.

    Regardless of what an arresting officer tells you, San Diego area prosecutors are NOT more lenient if you’re cooperative or supply extra information.

    In cases where California’s “Three Strikes Rule” comes into play, we will work hard to get your current and other charges reduced, to avoid the most severe “Three Strikes” penalties, like a 25-year prison sentence.

    Never agree to a search of your home unless the San Diego police officer shows you a warrant.

    Make sure the name and address on the warrant are yours, and that it’s signed, with a recent date.

    If they do offer a warrant, read it.

    If you’re taken into custody, call a lawyer before speaking to detectives and police officers. That is your right!

    Superior Law Center is ready to fight for you. We’ll use every resource at our disposal. If you are convicted, we will negotiate with the prosecution to reduce your charges, minimize your penalties, and keep you out of jail.
