DUI Attorney San Jose

Driving Under the Influence Defense Lawyers for Silicon Valley

Two sections of the California Vehicle Code specifically address driving under the influence (DUI). The first, section 23152(a), makes it a misdemeanor if you are caught driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The second, section 23152(b), specifies that driving with more than a .08 percent blood alcohol level is a misdemeanor. If you have been arrested, contact us immediately online or call our highly experienced DUI defense lawyers in Santa Clara County at 800-631-9579.

It is possible for DUI offenders to be convicted of both of these misdemeanors. There is also the threat of your license being suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  Additionally, driving does not only refer to driving a car. Operating a truck, motorcycle or even an airplane or boat while under the influence can result in a conviction. As a result, drunk driving cases can be surprisingly complex.
