Strategies in Defending California DUI Cases

Effectively defend your client’s DUI case with cross-examination techniques and knowing what to look for in the police report. After learning this information, you will be able to feel confident in cross-examining a police officer, attacking the high blood alcohol level in trial, and making your final argument. You will also be able to identify key facts in police reports that will help you to attack and win the high blood alcohol level case. You will be able to recognize how to make the 'disconnect defense' work by showing that high blood alcohol levels often don’t match up with the driving and field sobriety tests. If a client comes to you with a .24 chemical test and you think 'How am I going to be able to help this person?' There is a lot you can do. You can win this case outright. My first acquittal ever back in 1981 was a .22 blood test for the wife of a senior partner at the O’Melveny law firm in Los Angeles. These cases are eminently winnable. Hopefully you will come out of this feeling confident in your ability to cross-examine a police officer and attack the high blood alcohol test.
