Question: I have a DUI in Los Angeles, and was at a .09 Result. Is a DUI breath test accurate and is this case worth fighting? My friend got a DUI in Burbank and they sent him up the river!!!!

Answer: DUI breath tests can have many issues. They may not be calibrated or maintained properly. There are outside factors that can affect their accuracy including breath temperature, mouth alcohol, GERD (ie. acid reflux), etc…. This sounds like a good case to fight. I have gotten DUI charges dismissed and reduced to non alcohol related charges in cases that sound similar to what you describing. Call me at 818-336-1384 or contact me through if you would like to discuss your case in more detail.
