If you have been arrested and charged with your third DUI offense in 10 years, you will likely spend significant time in jail—without an experienced and skilled DUI defense attorney in your corner. DUI penalties escalate with the number of offenses and judges are ruthless when sentencing repeat DUI offenders. The loss of your driver's license alone is often enough to significantly damage your career, your relationships, and your future.
At the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, our Oakland DUI attorney has the resources necessary to investigate your DUI case thoroughly and build a solid defense against these serious charges. By attacking the prosecution's case against you and questioning the validity of the evidence, we are often able to have the charges against you reduced significantly.
These are serious charges and another DUI conviction could make it impossible for you to obtain certain licenses, obtain specific jobs, and could even factor into custody battles.
When the stakes are high, you need an aggressive and experienced Oakland DUI lawyer on your side. There are ways to defend against these charges, but it is paramount that you begin your defense immediately. You only have 10 days from the day you are arrested to request a formal DMV hearing to challenge your automatic license suspension.
Your attorney will review your prior DUI convictions, investigate your current DUI case, and seek to expose any holes in the prosecution's case against you. If your BAC sample was collected improperly, mishandled, or if the Breathalyzer was not calibrated correctly, then your Oakland criminal defense lawyer may be able to have the evidence suppressed. Without a BAC, the prosecution would be unable to prove DUI.
Our DUI defense law firm serves clients in Oakland, San Francisco, Walnut Creek, and throughout the East Bay. Call the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed today to set up a free review of your case at (510) 907-6600.
We can start building a solid defense against these serious charges. Even if you are already detained, we are also available for phone consultations and jail interviews.
