California DUI Laws

There are different types of DUI charges you could face if you were found to be operating a vehicle under the influence.

In accordance with California laws, individuals could be charged with:

  • Per se DUI: If your blood alcohol level is higher than that of the legal limit, you could be charged with a per se DUI. If a blood or breath alcohol test shows you are intoxicated, that will be enough evidence to arrest you and charge you with driving under the influence.
  • Implied consent DUI: When an individual receives their driver’s license, they agree to give sobriety tests to determine intoxication, subject to an arresting officer’s discretion. Denying a chemical or sobriety test while showing signs of intoxication can be enough for an officer to arrest you and charge you with a DUI.
  • Zero tolerance DUI: Individuals under the age of 21 that are found to be operating a vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their system are automatically arrested and charged with a DUI. This includes even small trace amounts of alcohol or any individual showing signs of intoxication during a sobriety test.
  • Aggravated DUI: This type of DUI is considered a more extreme offense. It can be charged to an individual if they are found to be driving erratically, driving with minors present in the vehicle, become involved in a collision, or if their blood alcohol level is extremely high.

Regardless of the charges you may be facing, it is important to know that, with the help of an attorney, it’s possible to fight the charges brought against you.

  • Mr. Jacob was able to prove that I was innocent and the felony charges were dismissed.

    “Mr. Jacob was able to prove that I was innocent and the felony charges were dismissed.”

    Frank

  • So Relieved!

    “I found Mr. Jacob through the AVVO website. After calling and emailing many lawyers, Mr. Jacob was frank and honest with me as he explained to me how unfortunate my legal situation was and what we could do together to quickly handle the case before it was out of our hands. I appreciated his honesty and his desire to act quickly while maintaining communication throughout the process. He was honestly the only lawyer that I felt I could trust, even through the phone, and that was something that made me stick with him. It was my first time experiencing the legal system with a domestic violence charge and while I was adamant I was the victim, the authorities felt otherwise. As you can imagine the stress was unfathomable. But three days later, Mr. Jacob granted me the news that my case had been dismissed and the biggest weight of my life had been lifted. As someone who is experiencing the world of court and lawyers for the first time, a young female in her twenties, who was leaving an abusive long term relationship, I was scared and unsure from the beginning of who to even chose as my defense. I felt as though the wrong choice could lead me to certain doom... luckily, it was the right one. I can't thank him enough for making a tough time a little bit easier and I would never wish you would need his intelligence and experience to help you or a loved one, but I can say without a doubt I would recommend him.”

  • He got the felony dismissed and I served no time in custody

    Kady

  • A true Icon of Justice

    “First, let me start by saying that Mr. Ben Jacob deserves to be recognized for his hard work and representation. There are really no words to express my gratitude and thanks for the outstanding effort in obtaining the exceptional outcome on my case. Mr. Jacob went above and beyond what any other Attorney has ever done for me. When I was remanded into the sheriff's custody the feelings of hopelessness and despair were overwhelming. The D.A. and the Judge made it clear that there were no chances left for me, and with a lifelong stigma of negative trailing behind me, I truly believed I was destined to stay in jail. Mr. Jacob kept my life from making a permanent turn in the wrong direction. Because Mr. Jacob truly cares about his clients and their well being I was released from custody. Ben Jacob not only believed in me he went to bat against the whole courtroom on my behalf. Mr. Jacob defends his clients with conviction and vigor, not backing down, and unwavering in his defense. Despite a troubled past and a bad reputation, Mr. Jacob treated me with dignity and respect. I'm able to be the mommy my two-year-old needs because Mr. Jacob believed in me when everyone else wanted me in custody. Mr. Jacob is a true artist in his profession. Thank You seems ridiculous in comparison to the true effect of Mr. Jacob’s impact in my life.”

    Melinda Wills

  • Highly recommend Ben Jacob! Not only is he professional, dependable and considerate but he is also human and understands that we make mistakes. He will do everything to get the best posible outcome for his clients.

    “Attorney Ben Jacob is very professional. I called him with questions before I even retained him and he was very clear and courteous in answering all of them. I explained my situation to him and he guided me step by step as to how go about my case. I am very glad I found someone I can trust. Ben made the process easier by explaining what I needed to do and what was going to happen. He made me feel comfortable in knowing I will be okay. I've never been in a bad situation before and so I was scared and anxious but attorney Jacob reassured me he was going to work with me and the DA to make sure my case is resolved. Thanks Ben for all the hard work and dedication to making sure every client is represented and protected.”
