Sacramento DUI Attorney
Aggressive Solutions When You've Been Pulled Over
As in the rest of the U.S., the blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in California is 0.08%. Those under age 21 are considered drunk at 0.02% and can face strict penalties. When a driver has a BAC of 0.16, he or she can face enhanced penalties under an aggravated DUI charge. What sets California apart, is that our state has some of the strictest DUI laws in the nation when it comes to penalties.
If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, the time to act is now. From the day you’re arrested, you have only 10 days to request a DMV hearing, which should be done by your attorney. Hiring a lawyer early in the process can also be beneficial in starting your case off on the right foot – you want time to discuss your legal options and be prepared for your hearing.

On your second offense, you could have your license suspended for two years. On your third offense, your license could be taken away for up to 10 years. In addition, you could be forced to pay up to $18,000 in fines and spend more than a year in prison.
