In Los Angeles County, a person can be charged with a DUI if their Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is 0.08% or above, or if they are driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both. Drugs include both illegal substances as well as prescription medicine that can cause someone to be under the influence while operating a motor vehicle.

Facing a DUI charge can be a frustrating, confusing and scary process. It is the most charged crime in California. It is also something that law enforcement and prosecutors take very seriously due to the potential public safety issues. You may be facing thousands of dollars in fines, up to 6 months license suspension for a first time offense, and mandatory drinking and driving education programs. Due to the seriousness of these offenses, effective representation from Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Ross Erlich is necessary to protect your rights.
There are many strategies that Attorney Ross Erlich can use to fight your DUI arrest. Some examples include:
- Was there probable cause for the police officer to pull you over?
- Was the arrest lawfully made?
- Were the field sobriety tests administered correctly?
- Was the breathalyzer machine properly calibrated and maintained?
Each one of these factors can be the basis for the prosecution to dismiss the charges or, in the alternative, to reduce them from a standard DUI.
