DUI Arrests Involving Attorneys

Attorneys arrested in California for driving under the influence or driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or greater are facing very serious cases. DUI arrests of California attorneys trigger a minimum of three cases. The first case is the DUI criminal case in which the District Attorney, California Attorney General or United States Attorney will most often charge two misdemeanor violations in the case of a non-injury drunk driving arrest or two felony charges in cases where someone other than the driver has been injured.

The second DUI case is the California Department of Motor Vehicles license suspension action in which a Hearing Officer of the DMV's Driver Safety Office will attempt to suspend the attorney's driver's license by proving the attorney was driving with a blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of 0.08 percent or greater.

The third case which may be generated by a California driving under the influence arrest involving an attorney is the State Bar of California discipline case. Lawyers have been fingerpirnted and their fingerprints are on file with the California Department of Justice. When an individual is arrested and taken into custody, their fingerprints are taken as part of the booking process. Fingerprints taken during the California booking process are forwarded to the Department of Justice. Some licensing boards and employers are automatically contacted when Department of Justice fingerprint technicians match a fingerprint to an individual who has been arrested.

Additionally, the California Business and Professions Code requires prosecutors and California state judges to notify the State Bar of California of criminal prosecutions involving California attorneys.

If you are an attorney and have been arrested for driving under the influence or driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or greater, you need immediate representation from a qualified attorney specializing in drunk driving criminal cases, California Department of Motor Vehicles driver's license suspension actions and reporting requirements of the State Bar of California.
