Fingerprinting a Los Angeles DUI Suspect

If you have recently been charged in Los Angeles for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), you are most likely feeling scared and confused right now.

  • Go to jail

  • Visa Issues – Traveling Limited

George W. Woodworth, Los Angeles County DUI Lawyer

I am California DUI Attorney George W. Woodworth. I routinely help DUI defendants protect their rights and ensure fair treatment in the court and penal system. The legal system is tricky, but with the right guidance, you’ll begin to understand the full implications of your situation and identify the steps you’ll need to take to end up with the best possible outcome.

Did you know there are dozens of ways to challenge the charges you’re currently facing? When you consult with me, I’ll personally walk you through some of these. If one or more apply, we can help you formally raise the challenges so your case is as strong as possible. I know how the prosecution pursues an California DUI charge, and I know how to best defend you.

Plenty of lawyers just fill out forms and talk to the local Prosecuting Attorney. That’s all they do! But in many cases, your best option is to fight the charges against you. If the facts of your case present opportunities, we should look carefully at a defense. Many times people were arrested when they shouldn’t have been —and that’s where a competent attorney can really help. Even if the case against you is solid and you feel as if you have no defense, there’s a lot we can do to minimize the harsh punishments that the State can and will attempt to bring against you.

My goal is straight-forward: to keep your record clear. I will work hard to absolve you of all charges, prevent you from losing your license, and keep you from serving time behind bars.

Charged with Drunk Driving in Los Angeles

No lawyer can guarantee that they’ll be successful defending a client as each case is unique and depends on many variables. For example… Is the judge assigned to your case harsh or lenient on drunk driving offenses? Does the Prosecuting Attorney plan on going after you with both barrels – to make yet another DUI example? Frankly, there is just no way of predicting the obstacles you might be up against. Regardless of your situation, however, hiring a experienced DUI Lawyer can help. When you work with my law office, you will get a highly skilled Los Angeles County area DUI Lawyer who is fiercely passionate about protecting your rights and minimizing the fallout from these serious charges.

At the very least, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re treated fairly as you weave your way through this very serious criminal legal process.

Prosecuting Attorneys know all the legal nuances that strengthen their DUI cases.We want you to get the legal expertise you need. According to the law, the Prosecuting Attorney only needs to prove that, after drinking alcohol, you were not able to safely drive your vehicle, or that your blood alcohol level exceeded a certain legal limit. On the surface, that sounds pretty cut and dry—and probably even a little scary to you as you contemplate going this process alone

Fortunately prosecuting YOU is not quite that simple.

You see, if challenged, the State’s Prosecuting Attorney will also have to prove several other key things:

  • That the arresting officer followed the letter of the law and arrested you properly
  • That you were lawfully advised of your rights
  • That the equipment used to test your blood alcohol level was in working order
  • That the person who checked your blood alcohol level was certified to perform the test

If the Prosecuting Attorney has any information that could potentially prove your innocence, they are legally bound to give it to you. An experienced Los Angeles County DUI attorney knows this and can get the Prosecuting Attorney to comply. That’s where my office can help.

A Competent L.A. DUI / DWI Lawyer Is Critical

Knowing the DUI System -  George W. Woodworth will file the proper motions...

Knowing the DUI System - Filing Appropriate Motions...

Los Angeles County DUI Attorney, George W. Woodworth knows how to make the critical motions your legal case requires—motions that will force the Prosecuting Attorney to prove that every step of your arrest precisely followed the law.

When you retain the services of California DUI Attorney George W. Woodworth to handle your DUI case, you will get expert legal help from an experienced DUI Attorney who has guided many defendants through the complexities of the California State legal system. To ensure you’re treated fairly, we’ll search for as much information as possible to strengthen your case:

  • Names, addresses, and recorded statements for everyone the Prosecuting Attorney plans to call as a witness
  • Any information the Prosecuting Attorney has in his/her possession that shows that you are potentially innocent or that could lighten your sentence
  • Records demonstrating the blood alcohol equipment used to test you was working 100% properly at the time
  • Solid proof that you were appropriately advised of your rights

We will also talk to the Prosecuting Attorney before your case goes to court to request the proof that will be presented and let the Prosecuting Attorney know which parts of the case we might plan to contest. Why would we do that? Wouldn’t that be showing our hand? Frankly, in most criminal cases there is actually a good reason for this. When a case is challenged, the Prosecuting Attorney is forced to invest extra time (which they rarely have, since at any given time they juggle many cases at once) and decide that the extra time will work in the budget they are allowed (most offices are under tremendous pressure to settle cases that might add additional expenses to an already over-burdened budget). It costs prosecutors a great deal of money to produce stronger evidence and dig up more witnesses: money that simply is not in the budget these days.
