California DUI Overview

California is home to some of the toughest DUI penalties in our nation. If you have recently been arrested for a DUI, odds are you are quickly learning just how tough these penalties can be. The drastic effects of a DUI are far reaching and include the loss of your driving privileges, expensive court fines and fees, jail time, and installation of an ignition interlock device. A DUI conviction may also lead to the loss of your job or professional license, a damaged reputation and even disqualification from lucrative job opportunities.

Best DUI Attorney

At the Law Offices of Kareem A. Ramadan we aggressively defend DUI charges both in court and at DMV hearings by carefully strategizing with our clients to create a solid defense. There are several dozen issues that may arise in any DUI case and we take the time to investigate each and every one including why the police stopped your car, whether the police officer was following the state guidelines during the stop, and how you performed on the field sobriety tests (FSTs). Our several years in courtroom experience have helped us find the most successful defenses to DUI charges and helped our clients avoid serious consequences.

THE DUI Process

YOU ONLY HAVE TEN DAYS FROM THE DATE OF YOUR ARREST TO CONTACT THE DMV or your driver's license will AUTOMATICALLY be suspended. At the Law Offices of Kareem A. Ramadan we will stop the DMV from suspending your license automatically and begin the legal process of defending your license from being suspended with an Administrative Per Se Hearing.

What is an Admin Per Se Hearing?

Before your license can be suspended California Law states that a special hearing must take place to determine whether there is enough evidence to suspend someone's driving privileges. When you have been charged with a DUI, the FIRST STEP in saving your license is contacting the DMV to set up the APS Hearing. At the Law Offices of Kareem A. Ramadan we use our years of training and experience to attack the issues discussed at the hearing in order to save your license from being suspended.

Can the state convict me of DUI if my BAC level was under a .08%?

Unfortunately the answer is yes. Without an experienced DUI defense attorney by your side the District Attorney will have an easier chance at getting a DUI conviction even though the facts of the case are on your side. However, the state must still prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. An experienced DUI defense attorney can help you fight your DUI charges and ensure you don't end up being convicted of a crime the state cant prove.


If you are under investigation or have been charged with a DUI it is critical to act fast and obtain the services of an experienced DUI defense attorney to protect your rights. It is important that you begin to plan your defense and review your legal options with a qualified lawyer. The Law Offices of Kareem A. Ramadan has successfully protected many individuals accused of DUIs from unnecessary prosecution and avoidance of serious criminal penalties. Contact the Law Offices of Kareem A.
