Lemoore DUI Attorney
Lemoore is a small city located in Kings County and in Calfiornia's San Joaquin Valley. While its population is just around 25,000 according to the most recent census data, it is also the location of the Lemoore Naval Air Station (NAS Lemoore). NAS Lemoore is also home to The Pacific Strike Fighter Wing and three additional carrier air wings. This military complex is at NAS Lemoore is the Navy’s newest and largest jet base. In fact, the base serves more people between active military, dependents, civilian contractors, and retirees than the entire population of Lemoore.
Experience representing on and off base DUI charges
As a Lemoore DUI Attorney, Michael E.

He has represented F18 Fighter Pilots, Navigators (back seaters) as well as civilian defense contractors. Mr. Mitchell has also represented spouses of military personnel charged with a DUI at NAS Lemoore. It’s fair to say that Mr. Mitchell’s experience representing military personnel at NAS Lemoore is second to none.
Got a DUI on Base?
What most people find out when they are arrested for a DUI on base, is that the Naval police or Master at Arms (MAs) call the California Highway Patrol in to conduct the DUI investigation. This can be problematic in the sense that there may be substantial delays between the arrest and the subsequent chemical test. A knowledgeable DUI Lawyer in Lemoore, can use this delay to attack the accuracy of the ensuing result. In addition, a prolonged detention may result in the case being suppressed. Moreover, the MAs have some training on how to do rudimentary field sobriety tests, but often their observations don’t support either an initial detention or a subsequent arrest, which may lead to the evidence being inadmissible at a subsequent DMV or Court hearing.
