Rolling Hills Estates Criminal Defense Case Histories
Case History #1
A professional living in the Rolling Hills Estates was pulled over by the Palos Verdes Police Department on suspicion of driving under the influence. Immediately upon reviewing the discovery obtained from the El Segundo DMV, I spotted holes and/or lack of evidence obtained in the field sobriety test administered by the Palos Verdes Police Department.
My client worked for a prominent professional business and was extremely concerned regarding how this charge would affect his professional license. Immediately, my office and I began making calls to handle his (1) El Segundo DMV matter, (2) professional license matter and (3) the court case assigned to a Torrance District Attorney at the Torrance Courthouse located at 825 Maple Ave., in the city of Torrance.
The procedure in the above three areas differ drastically. I reviewed the discovery, which consisted of the Palos Verdes Police Officers’ dash camera capturing the process of pulling my client over and conducting the field sobriety tests. I contacted the El Segundo DMV immediately to schedule the hearing required to prevent automatic revocation of his driver license.
Ultimately, I obtained a 1 year suspended license and dismissal of his court case. I prevented his professional license from being revoked and my client continues working in his professional career without issue.
