If you live in Oakland, you know there's always a risk that you will pulled over primarily because you are driving in the “wrong neighborhood.” Our Oakland DUI defense lawyers are prepared to defend your rights when facing DUI charges in Oakland or the surrounding areas of Alameda County.
Whether you are a U.C. Berkeley student driving home from a night of partying after a Cal Bears victory, or an employee driving home from work, Beahm Law is a friend you can count on if you are arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in Oakland.
Because our Oakland DUI lawyers know that a traffic stop might be mere pretense, we carefully scrutinize a police officer's justification for the initial stop. This evaluation of the stop often includes reviewing the police report for inconsistencies or inaccuracies, obtaining statements from other witnesses, reviewing the arresting officer's personnel records and/or prior DUI arrest reports for evidence of bias, and carefully evaluating the officer's administration and scoring of FSTs.
Providing Zealous DUI Defense Tailored to Your Specific Circumstances
Oakland is home to a diverse cross-section of people from all walks of life, socioeconomic backgrounds, and racial or cultural backgrounds. This diversity means that some people who are stopped for DUI might be experiencing their first encounter with law enforcement, while others might be facing a DUI charge with several prior convictions.
Our law firm focuses on intoxicated driving and criminal offenses, which means that much of our experience, skill, litigation resources and expertise are devoted to protecting the rights of those accused of criminal violations and to effectively attacking the prosecutor's evidence.
When you speak with an Oakland DUI defense attorney at our law firm, you can expect candid, straightforward legal advice. Because individuals arrested for DUI need to make sound decisions about their case, we do not pull punches when explaining your options and potential exposure to punishment.
Although you might not love everything we have to say, you can rest assured you are receiving an honest assessment of your situation rather than a distortion designed to encourage you to retain our office.
While other law firms might use their website to extol their virtues, such self-promotion should be viewed with a skeptical eye. At Beahm Law, we encourage you to rely not only on our opinion of our clients' satisfaction. Rather, you can search Avvo, Google and Yelp to learn what our clients have to say about their experiences with our Oakland DUI defense law firm. Our clients trust us because they have read the feedback from our past clients regarding our successful results, high-quality representation and prompt response to client communications.
Although our initial evaluation of your DUI case might begin with careful scrutiny of the police officer's reason for pulling you over, we meticulously analyze every aspect of your encounter with the arresting officer, including the legal basis for the stop, the officer's observations before and during the stop, field sobriety testing, chemical testing of breath or blood, and evidence of officer bias.
