Bellflower DUI Lawyer
Any DUI arrest is of huge concern. California laws have gotten more and more severe over the years. Even one point over the .08% blood alcohol concentration level and you will be arrested and charged with drunk driving. If you are facing a DUI charge, it is crucial that you contact a Bellflower DUI attorney.
Dealing with DUI charges without a professional DUI defense attorney may create real problems in your life. The penalties for DUI, even the first time you have ever been charged, can include jail time, expensive fines, community service and in some cases alcohol treatment programs.
DUI Cases at the Bellflower Courthouse
If you were arrested for drunk driving in Bellflower, chances are, your case will be handled at the Bellflower Courthouse, located at 10025 Est Flower Street.
If you were arrested for drunk driving, you have ten days to request a DMV hearing. This hearing is completely separate from your criminal DUI case and only concerns the future of your driver’s license. If you fail to request the hearing within ten days of your DUI arrest, you lose this opportunity. The DMV in Bellflower is located at 9520 E Artesia Blvd, Bellflower, CA 90706.
Exclusively Dedicated to DUI Defense
Not all DUI defense attorneys or firms are alike. Many lawyers will defend a DUI, but that is not their exclusive practice area, it is just one of many types of defenses they provide, or it is just sort of an "add-on" in their law practice. At Gold & Witham, the attorneys defend exclusively DUI cases and have done so for decades. This means that the firm is uniquely qualified in DUI defense. Gold & Witham is connected to investigative resources that can be brought into play in your defense.
For example, in your DUI arrest, certain equipment was used when the breath test was administered. The history of that particular breathalyzer equipment can be investigated to discover whether it was properly maintained, or whether it may have a history of faulty measurement. This is just one of the potential investigations that could possibly be part of a defense of your DUI.

They work with a highly motivated prosecutor to ensure that there is a conviction. Don't you think you should have someone working for your side?
