Los Angeles DUI Lawyer Offers Helpful Tips on New Website

(PRWEB) August 4, 2005

If you or someone close to you has ever been arrested for drunk driving in Los Angeles County, you realize that California DUI laws and procedures are complex and the punishment severe. You may also have learned the hard way that Los Angeles criminal lawyers are often unfamiliar with those complexities — including such important issues as breath-alcohol evidence, “field sobriety tests” and the California DMV’s administrative hearings and penalties for DUI driver’s license suspensions.

A prominent Los Angeles DUI attorney now offers a website filled with the information you need to know if you or a loved one ever faces a Los Angeles DUI arrest. Lawrence Taylor, nationally known as the “Dean of DUI Lawyers”, is a former Los Angeles prosecutor, professor of law, and author of the standard legal textbook in the field, “Drunk Driving Defense, 5th Edition”. Taylor has specialized in DUI defense since 1979, and is today one of only 4 California DUI attorneys who is Board-certified by the National College for DUI Defense/American Bar Association as a DUI Specialist. His Los Angeles DUI law firm of 8 lawyers, including 4 former prosecutors, specializes in drunk driving defense exclusively and has received the highest rating possible by the prestigious “Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory.”

In the website’s section on “Police DUI Evidence,” for example, subjects are covered such as types of driving which will attract the attention of police; personal behavior and appearance which are symptoms of intoxication (flushed face, slurred speech, fumbling with wallet, etc.); field sobriety tests (walk-and-turn, one-leg-stand, nystagmus and others); breath testing in the field with PAS (preliminary alcohol screening) devices; avoiding incriminating statements; and chemical testing used in Los Angeles County — blood, breath and urine (including some defects in breath testing).
