Getting a DUI in Los Angeles – and announcing it to the world – is a lot like getting pregnant or going on a diet. Everyone seems to have tons of advice for you, even if they have never experienced the situation themselves. Think about all the ridiculous advice non-parents give parents on airplanes about how to keep their kids quiet.
• “Feed him some popcorn”
• “Give him another bottle”
• “Give him a toy”
• “Take away that other toy”
• “Don’t listen to that jerk”
• “They are ready to fly at Y months, not X months… so you shouldn’t be on the plane”
And so it goes with many things in our life – we are forced to take unsolicited advice from people who don’t know what they are talking about. It can get frustrating.
In the case of your Los Angeles DUI defense, this random noise can be pretty destructive as well as distracting. For instance, there are certain myths about DUI defense that just will not die, such as the idea that chewing on a penny or drinking mouthwash will substantially change your breath test results.
There is no need to rehash the science (again) that refutes such myth. But they persist. If you take advice from the wrong people, you could make your situation worse and simultaneously miss out on more effective solutions.
The moral is this: leave the nuts and bolts of your defense up to experienced people. Attorney Michael Kraut of the Kraut Law Group can explain your Los Angeles DUI defense options and build you a sound and reasonable defense.
