Challenging the Breath Test or Blood SampleAt the Law Offices of Robert Beles, we regularly defend people accused of drunk driving by challenging the breath or blood test. We employ experts and rely on techniques used through years of experience defending the rights of people charged with DUI/DWI in California. We challenge the calibration of Intoxilyzer/Breathalyzer equipment and discover if Intoxilyzer/Breathalyzer tests were improperly administered by police. We make sure police properly preserve the blood sample and we have our own experts retest the sample.
Everyone is DifferentAlcohol and or drugs affect different people in different ways. A 250-pound experienced drinker and a 125-pound beginner do not react the same way to the same amount of alcohol consumed at a picnic. Impairment of motor skills or judgment can be quite different.
Illegal Traffic Stop?We bring motions to suppress if we determine you were the subject of an illegal traffic stop. The police cannot stop your car just to check to see if you have been drinking at a bar in Oakland or a friend’s home in Fremont. They can only stop a car for a traffic violation or if they have some cause to believe that the driver is intoxicated, such as erratic driving. Often, police officers stop a driver on a “hunch” and report a traffic violation or some other excuse that does not hold up in court.
Plea Bargain?We will negotiate the best possible plea bargain for you if that is your goal. We can negotiate to avoid penalties such as jail time, driver’s license restrictions, fines, the length of DUI school and the imposition of the ignition interlock device. Whether your blood alcohol was .08 or above, or if you were charged with refusing a breath or blood test, we can help you. If you have had an accident, we can help you deal with the insurance companies. As an alternative to license suspension, we can get you a restricted license that will allow you to drive to and from work or school.
We Help You Keep Your Driver’s LicenseWe are prepared to represent you aggressively at the administrative hearing of the Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV hearing is a technical hearing with which we have much experience. We will analyze the evidence and attack each aspect of the hearing. We will cross-examine witnesses against you. We know the stringent DMV rules about Intoxilyzers, Breathalyzers, blood tests, and field sobriety tests. If any alleged evidence was obtained improperly, we will fight to prevent it being used against you. We will protect your right to drive.
