Defending You Against DUI & Traffic Charges
If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI — sometimes known as DWI) or another traffic offense, you have a legal right to defend yourself with the help of an Oakland DUI defense attorney. In many cases, it may be possible to get these charges dismissed or at least avoid the most serious consequences.
I'm Nabiel C. Ahmed and I represent people throughout the Bay Area who have been charged with DUI and other traffic violations.
Taking Every Opportunity to Fight Drunk Driving Accusations
In California, if the police have evidence that you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs — including but not limited to evidence that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 percent or higher (.04 percent for those with a commercial drivers' license) — you can be convicted of a crime.
Some prosecutors and defense lawyers handle every DUI case in exactly the same way. I simply do not do that; I treat each case as unique and make sure I know the facts. As your attorney I will make use of every opportunity to take aggressive and strategic steps for your DUI defense. These include:
- Carefully evaluating the breath test, blood test and/or field sobriety test
- Seeking information about the arresting officer's previous DUI arrests
- Asking the right questions at the DMV hearing
- Challenging the basis for the initial DUI stop at a court hearing called a motion to suppress evidence
I will do everything I can to protect your criminal record and your driver's license from the possibility of a DUI conviction. If the prosecution does have solid evidence against you, I will fight to reduce the possible penalties you face.
Finding Strategic Ways to Beat Traffic Tickets
The California vehicle code contains long lists of driving violations, including speeding, running red lights, and failing to observe traffic signals or stop signs. Some of these violations come with serious potential consequences, especially if you have previous offenses on your driving record.
