DUI Cases

Dalva & Associates can provide you with comprehensive information about California drunk driving laws, California Administrative License Suspension & Revocations, plus an evaluation of your case. Our attorneys and support staff stand ready to assist you in weathering the stressful days ahead as we investigate and challenge your pending charges. We understand the serious nature of your situation and want to help you deal with the complex issues of a drunk driving arrest. .




You only have 10 days from the date of your DUI arrest to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you refused the test or were charged with refusing the test you face a possible suspension of your license for one or more years. Likewise, if you submitted to a test which yields a result of .08% or above, you can also be suspended for 4 months to 3 years. Contact our office immediately for assistance.



The law requires that an officer have probable cause before you are arrested. Typically, the training for officers as well as case law, requires police to establish probable cause by a violation of the law, an accident, and observations of the physical manifestation of intoxication. This is subjective, and many agencies require that Standardized Field Sobriety Tests be given, correctly, and perhaps a field breathalyzer or PAS machine, to establish alcohol in your blood. Your Miranda warnings, or the "reading of your rights", also require that you be advised or warned before they take testimony from you after arrest.If you've just been arrested for Drunk Driving/DUI, you have questions, we have answers at Dalva & Associates. Contact The Law Office of Dalva & Associates, PLC at 714 557-4000.
