Los Angeles DUI Objective Symptoms of Intoxication

These symptoms will vary significantly between individuals. Men and women process alcohol and drugs differently. In addition, a person's age, weight and the amount of alcohol or drugs he or she regularly consumes also has an effect on these objective symptoms. Often, drivers read a copy of the police report from the arrest incident and are shocked at what the officer has documented in term of their speech, dress or appearance. Many of these symptoms can be explained by other reasons that are not alcohol related.

DUI Signs and Symptoms

The following is partial list of some of the objective symptoms that a police officer will look for when the officer has pulled over a suspect for DUI. If the officer finds any or all of these symptoms, then the suspect will most likely be arrested for DUI and taken to jail:

★★★★★
Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs!
★★★★★
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad

Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida

Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
