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:

He gave me the peace of mind that my DUI case was going to be resolved. He fought for what it was needed and helped me by answering all my questions. Mike is not an average attorney. He’s a very experienced, honest and straightforward person that is there for you!
I hired Attorney Mike Kraut and I'm am so happy and grateful that I did! I was arrested for a DUI because my BAC level was over the .08 limit. I ended up getting a wet and reckless instead of a DUI. I still have to do some classes and I'm on probation, but I do not have a DUI on my record. If you have a DUI hire Attorney Kraut, he definitely knows his stuff!

Michael Kraut is a rock star lawyer. I was really happy and satisfied with the results I received from Michael and his team. A few months back I was being accused of a serious felony. Mike gave me sound legal advice and worked diligently to clear my name. Mike was great at always keeping me updated and returning calls. Great, great lawyer I cant say enough about this man!

How can I express how relieved and pleased I am with Michael's professional abilities to have my Felony brought down to a misdameanor to a possible dismissal with deferment. With his care my life has been turned around and cannot say how helpful he's been not only in my case but life. He, himself has changed how I view criminal lawyers. Thank you so much Michael!
