Getting a Van Nuys DUI reduced

Question:  I was arrested for a DUI in Van Nuys.  If I get a DUI conviction on my record it is going to create some complications with my job since I drive for work.   What can I do to have my Van Nuys DUI reduced?  Is it even possible to get that done?

Answer: What do you do for work?  I understand that you drive for work.  Are you a commerial driver with a class A or class B license?  If so, that will further complicate things as you will not be able to get a restricted commercial driver’s license in the event of a DUI conviction or admin per se (DMV) hearing loss.

That being said, it is possible to get a DUI dismissed and reduced to a lesser such as a wet reckless or exhibition of speed.  This can be done based on attacking the evidence (ie. potential issues with the police report, maintenance and calibration of the Breath machines, problems with probable cause for stop, etc.)

You should consult with a DUI attorney about your situation in more detail. Call me at 818-336-1DUI if you would like to discuss your case in more detail.  I regularly and successfully handle DUI cases in Van Nuys and have saved many clients from having a driver’s license suspension.

Keep in mind that a DMV hearing has to be requested within 10 days of the arrest, so call me as soon as possible to talk about your case, both the Criminal and DMV aspects of it.
