Road Rules

Tips from an Orange County DUI defense lawyer

Just remember that the field sobriety tests—spelling the alphabet backward, touching your nose while leaning your head straight back—are designed for failure, so don't agree to submit to any. Most of those tests don't correlate to alcohol use because alcohol-free people will fail them 30 percent to 50 percent of the time. There is a lot more involved in defending someone from a DUI conviction than you'd think. You are not necessarily guilty just because you're arrested or because you were drinking. And remember, friends don't let friends plead guilty!
