If I handle your case I can promise 2 things, I am really really good at what I do, and I will work hard for you. I AM APPROVED BY THE STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA TO TEACH OTHER LAWYERS ABOUT BLOOD TESTING IN A DUI CASE.  The judge said I was one of the best DUI Lawyers he had seen in 30 plus years. "My name is David and when I got my 3rd DUI I hired Pat Silva to fight for me and he did! He got my 3rd DUI dropped, all I had to do was plead no contest to a few moving violations. I had a bac of .17 and he still got it dropped that's why I call him the specialist!"     ONLINE REVIEWS!

Q:  Am I allowed to view my breathalyzer score during the traffic stop?

Was pulled over and cuffed for DUI. I passed every field sobriety test but was told I had .08 and then a .09 score on the breathalyzer. After cuffed, I asked if there was a way to view my score and was denied. Then suggested if I can take it again; 2 minutes after being cuffed so I can see my score for myself. The accused me of calling them liars and said I wasn't able to retake it. So I had to take his word for it. Wonder how my BAC went up the second time? They did the big breathalyzer at the station about 40 minutes later and I was cleared to go. My car was towed and I might have a citation/ticket.

A:  It is not unusual for the two readings to be one number apart. You do not have a right to view the machine. If your license was taken and you were given a paper that serves as a temporary license, you need to contact the DMV for a hearing or your license will automatically be suspended. The "ticket" is most likely a promise to appear on the DUI charge. You can either hire private defense counsel or ask for the public defender the first time you go to court
