I just received a DUI in Burbank. Are they cracking down on DUI’s?

Question:  I just received a DUI in Burbank.  Are they cracking down on DUI’s in the area?  My friend got a DUI in Burbank a few weeks ago not far from where I got arrested for my DUI.  And a couple months before that another friend got a DUI in San Fernando.  Seems like they are handing them out like candy!

Answer: I don’t have statistics handy, but I would opine that yes, law enforcement across Los Angeles, including Burbank, are cracking down on DUI’s. I’ve recently heard a public service announcment on the radio advertising the fact that Police Officers are cracking down on DUI’s.

If you are charged with driving under the influence, it does not necessarily mean that you have to be convicted of one.  Is this your first DUI?  Are you over 21 years old?  Why were you pulled over?

I am very experienced in defending DUI’s and have successfully done so on many occasions in Burbank.  I know case law, forensic toxicolgy issues, how to challenge field sobriety tests, breath tests, and blood test cases.

Call me to discuss your case in more detail.
