Law enforcement agencies across the San Francisco Bay Area are aggressively busting drivers they consider to be violating the drunk and drug driving laws. Task forces called Wolf Packs and checkpoints have been created to cope with DUI in the 9 Bay Area Counties. In the criminal defense realm, domestic violence, petty theft, minor drug possession, shoplifting, prostitution, and other minor crimes effect regular people.
Many people are facing serious charges, both DUI and criminal. If you arrested for a drunk or drug driving, or other criminal charges, it is critical that you hire a qualified lawyer in order to fight to reduce the damage to your personal and professional reputation that result from a DUI conviction. If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, it is vital that you contact defense attorney Joshua Dale. He has extensive experience in defending even the most serious of DUI offense, and will advise you how he'll defend your case, personally.
"Those who study this stuff know there is a “prevalence of police perjury [in criminal investigations/testimony]....” Briscoe v. LaHue (1983) 460 U.S. 325, 365 and fn. 36 [Brennan, J. dissenting]. Justice Brennan notes, @Id., that prosecutors are reluctant to prosecute their malefacting police because they have to work closely with them."
At my firm, most clients that have been charged with drunk driving are regular, everyday, hard-working people who have gotten caught up in the system's guantlett. While the rest of people charged with bad crimes are real criminals who actually and intentionally committed a serious crime, regular people get charged too. I help you show the judges, prosecutors and even other attorneys that you stand out as a good human being, not a hardened criminal. Josh Dale will fight to have your case settled without any need for going to trial or for you to lose your license. You, the client is in control of the case, and if you are forced to go to trial, I fight to get you the best settlement in the case.
In every case, including DUIs, the prosecutor's charges have viable defenses that are proven once all the evidence is shown to me. Gathering this "discovery" takes a little while. No matter if you have a felony or misdemeanor, a DUI accident with injuries, or a generic 2nd, 3rd, or multiple DUI arrests from all over the country, I will help you. After your case, I can assist with any "sealing" of your arrest record or court conviction expungement. I will teach you how to never again get charged with a crime.

Getting convicted of a DUI charge causes the judge to sentence you to minimum penalties including taking your license(s), fine and insurance payments, jail time, community service or sheriff work and treatment programs. Many people charged with DUI have such a low blood alcohol level they weren't even dangerous on the road. Or their driving was fine but they got caught up in a DUI checkpoint.
The police officer(s) who handled your matter must be checked out to make sure they protected your Constitutional Rights. Their probable cause to arrest you must be challenged and cross-examined. Many, many times, officers rely on their own "hunches" to make arrests - this isn't legal and your case can be dismissed if you weren't handled legally.
If you are ever caught up as being suspected of DUI or other crimes, you don't want to talk to the police about anything until you've discussed things with your attorney. You should give the officers things like your license, registration and insurance, but not answer questions about what you've been doing - everything you say will be included in the police report especially if it will help the cop prove the crime charged - favorable things you say will likely be disgarded, and later forgotten. The same applies to whether the officer did the breath or blood test correctly - they won't admit they screwed it up. Only by checking out all their equipment and lab personel can you be sure. Your blood can be retested too. DNA analysis can even be performed on it if needed.
Obtaining experienced legal representation can assist you in sorting out the matter, no matter how bad it appears. In DUI offenses, you deserve a better outcome.
