Question: Can I fight a DUI charge for driving just above the legal limit but passed the field test? The case is in Santa Clarita Court.

Answer: Yes. I have had a lot of success getting DUI charges dismissed and reduced without having to go to trial in cases where the blood alcohol level (by way of blood test or breathalyzer) was just over the legal limit. See the case results tab on this site, I have had success in cases where the BAC was way above the legal limit as well. There is also a chance to get the case dismissed based on unlawful arrest, in a situation where you did in fact pass all the Field Sobriety tests (FST’s). Feel free to contact me at 818-336-1384 (818-336-1DUI) for a free evaluation of your case.
