California DUI arrest and didn't blow. DMV suspends license for 1 year, are there any options for me?
Arrested in Ventura County. I refused the breath test but agreed to the blood test. DMV sides with officer and suspends my license for 1 year. Do I have ANY recourse or options to drive?

Do I have a chance at fighting a DUI charge
I was arrested for a DUI recently with a .2 BAC. I understand how high that was but feel that was higher than what it should have been. As far as the circumstances that revolves around it goes, I was parked on the shoulder of a freeway making a phone call. After a few minutes, CHP pulled behind me to see what I was doing. I let them know making a phone call. I was outside the whole time as they pulled behind me and did not see me driving at all. I understand they can still get me for a DUI but it's a matter if it's worth fighting for to at least reduce charges imposed on me through claims that it should not have been a .2 BAC which was obtained from a breathalyser on the spot. Thank you.
Assuming you were alone and had no passengers, it will tough to beat a .20 BAC. You may have admitted to driving...

Petition for Writ of Mandate: Court date is AFTER full year of license suspension is already served?
My California drivers license was suspended for 1 year due to refusal to take blood/breath test when i was stopped for DUI I didn't actually refuse and am fighting the DMV decision by Petition for Writ of Mandate. My attorney just informed me that the court assigned us a date 1 day AFTER I have my 1 year suspension ends. (And the court already denied me an ex-parte). Even if I win, I have already suffered the full punishment. Is this legal? It doesn't seem fair. Is my attorney doing something wrong?
Your attorney isn't doing anything wrong. At least with respect to this. The DMV action is totally separate from any...
