According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 1.8% of California drivers admit to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. While that percentage may seem small when you calculate the number of registered drivers, throughout the state, that 1.8% comes out to more than 450,000 people a year. Driving under the influence (DUI) is no joke and Fresno, California takes the offense very seriously.

Penalties for Drunk Driving in California Include:

  • License suspension and/or revocation
  • Classes
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Ignition Interlock Device Installation
  • Or any combination of the above

Should I Hire an Attorney for my DUI? 

Of course, that is up to you. However, to be considered too intoxicated to drive your blood alcohol (BAC) level only needs to be .08 or your driving has to “effected” by the alcohol/drug to the point where you cannot drive with the same ability as a sober driver. Depending on your body type, including size, weight, and metabolism you could be convicted of driving under the influence after 2 beers or less. In addition, you can be charged with driving under the influence of a drug or a combination of alcohol and a drug. Considering what's at stake hiring an attorney to defend you is always in your best interest. Attorney Michael E. Mitchell of the Mitchell Law Group, Inc. has extensive experience defending clients and helping them navigate the DUI process while achieving the best outcomes possible.

  • You were the driver of the vehicle
