Jeff Gold and Nigel Witham
You've suffered one of the most stressful and embarrassing experiences a person can endure. You've just been arrested for Drunk Driving/DUI. We understand your discomfort. At Gold and Witham, Attorneys at Law, Drunk Driving/DUI Defense is all we do.
If you’re like most people, you enjoy going out to dinner or out with friends. You may have a glass of wine with dinner, or maybe a beer with your colleagues. You may think that you are being responsible by trying to watch your alcohol intake. However, it does not take much for your system to register an .08 on the Blood Alcohol Content scale, which is the legal limit in California. A 180-pound person could register over the limit after only three glasses of wine. This result depends on several factors, including height, weight, amount of time spent drinking and the type of alcoholic beverages you consumed. Regardless, there is no sure way to know if you are “legal” to drive.
If you get pulled over after a night out, what do you do? If you are arrested and given a roadside sobriety test, how do you respond? If you are formally charged with a DUI in California, how do you proceed through the legal process and ensure that you are protecting your rights to the fullest extent allowed by the law?
