First time DUI with accident and property damage. What are my options?
I got into an accident on Sunday, making a left turn onto a freeway ramp and hitting a freeway sign and fence. While the tow truck was removing my car, a CHP pulled up and gave me a field sobriety test after asking if I had been drinking that night. (I told them I had, but not for over 2 hours). I blew over the .08 limit and was arrested. I blew under the limit at the courthouse when booked, and thus my license wasn't relinquished. After a night in jail and dealing with the accident itself, I am looking into legal representation. What are the possible enhancements with this charge (because of the accident) and what should I be looking for in order to not have this momentary lapse in judgement affect my long term job and employment opportunities? (I am a working actor in Los Angel

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...
