Breath & Blood Tests

DUI Defense Lawyer in Oceanside

Police officers must have evidence of your intoxication before they can make a legal arrest for driving under the influence (DUI). This evidence can be gathered through field sobriety tests, but most officers refrain from arresting a suspect until the driver has failed a breath or blood test.

Breathalyzer tests are the most common means of determining a motorist's blood alcohol content (BAC). The legal limit to drive is 0.08% BAC, which is measured in grams per liter (g/L) of blood. If a person fails a breathalyzer test or blood test with 0.08% BAC or higher, they may think that they have no defense. Fortunately, a skilled Oceanside defense attorney from the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette can fight your DUI regardless of your test results!

Fight Your Breath or Blood Test

You may very well have a defense regardless of your test results. Breathalyzer machines are very delicate. When administering a breath test, the police officer must properly calibrate the machine in order to guarantee a valid reading. My firm can investigate your breath test to determine whether or not you are the victim of police misconduct. Blood tests can also be false if they were contaminated at the time they were drawn or during processing in the lab. If such contamination or police misconduct can be proven in court, your DUI charges could be dropped or your case dismissed.
