In the state of California a conviction for DUI is very serious.

In Los Angeles DUI crimes are charged under the California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) and 23152(b). The first section, 23152(a), is enforced very strongly by the police and prosecutors. If you are stopped by the police for driving under the influence in the Los Angeles then you can be charged with this crime. The police will claim that you weaved in traffic, were speeding, or violated some other traffic law. The police will then ask you to step out of the vehicle to determine if you have alcohol or drugs in your system.

If you are arrested for having a blood alcohol level in excess of .08% in violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152(b), then the police will charge you with this crime. In order to prove that the driver's blood was above the legal limit, the police will conduct a chemical test. The chemical test will be either a Los Angeles DUI blood test or a Los Angeles DUI breathe test.

In some cases after a person is arrested for a Los Angeles DUI, the driver will refuse to give a chemical test. That is called a DUI refusal and the result will be very harsh. A DUI refusal will result in the DMV suspending their driver's license for a minimum of one year.

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!
