DUI Defense and Toxicologists
Defending DUI charges in Los Angeles or Orange County involves issues of law and science. Proffessional DUI attorney's develop a close working relationship with an experienced blood/breath alcohol expert or toxicologist.
In breath test cases, it is important to obtain the maintenance and calibration history of the breath machine and to check on the operators qualifications and the procedures followed. This information should be reviewed by a toxicologist experienced in looking for problems associated with the machine.
In blood test cases, it is important to obtain a portion of the sample for re-analysis by a toxicologist to check on accuracy, levels of preservative and bacterial growth.
In addition, it is important for the toxicologist to review information from the defendant concerning the amount and type of alcohol consumed, when it was consumed and to compare this infornmation with the other evidence in the case.
Gold & Witham have a long standing relationship with experienced and well respected toxicologist Henry S. Greenberg and review all of their cases with him for potential defenses. If you have been arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles or Orange County, make sure that you consult with a DUI lawyer who has an experienced expert on his "team".
