Breath Tests and Blood Tests
San Diego DUI Lawyer
If you were arrested for DUI after failing or refusing a breath or blood test an experienced and knowledgable San Diego DUI attorney at DUI Crew can help you.
In order to convict one for DUI (driving under the influence) in San Diego, law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney will often utilize a driver’s breath or blood test results. A breath test, blood test or sometimes a urine test may be used to determine a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If the driver is operating a vehicle while having a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or higher, they may be charged with DUI. Underage drivers can have their license suspended with a BAC of .01% or greater, and commercial drivers can face criminal charges with a BAC of .04% or higher.
About Breath Tests and Blood Tests
A breath test is usually administered by having the driver blow into a breathalyzer device which determines the concentration of alcohol from the breath sample. Breath tests are typically considered less reliable than blood tests and may have a number of issues arise that can affect the result. A lawyer can bring these into question to challenge your breath test result in court. For example, the breathalyzer machine must be calibrated frequently and according to state standards in order for the results to be admissible in court. If the breathalyzer device was not calibrated, your attorney may be able to use this to help your case.
A blood test is administered by taking a sample of blood and then processing this to determine the driver’s blood alcohol concentration. Although blood tests are more accurate than breath tests, blood tests have their own faults as well and may be improperly handled, administered by an untrained professional or otherwise mishandled. Your attorney may be able to use this to help you win your case.

You want this guy with you in court
I was arrested on my 3rd DUI within 10 years and this charge comes with ALOT of problems that I had to face. Howard being the knowledgeable attorney he is was able to reduce my charges and I spent NO TIME IN JAIL. This man knows the law and together with his knowledge and determination I can say that if you get any type of DUI you WANT THIS GUY WITH YOU IN COURT.
Professional & Personable
I highly recommend Mr. Williams to anyone! He is very personable and is extremely educated with what he is doing. He handled my DMV case and got my charges in the court hearing reduced to a “Wet Reckless”. After talking to Howard I was more confident and less shameful with my case. Howard always returned my phone calls within 24 hours.
Howard did an amazing job defending me in my under 21 years of age DUI case, which was a complex and difficult one. He took care of both my DMV hearing and court case in a very efficient and timely manner. I hired Howard because, (1) he listened and was genuinely concerned about my well being, (2) he was honest and did not make any promises about the potential outcome of my case, (3) he kept in touch and informed me each step of the way, (4) he treated me with respect, and (4) his fees were fair and reasonable. I highly recommend Howard to anyone who needs a DUI attorney.
I was charged with a DUI hit and run with a BAC of .31. I hired Howard to represent me on this case and he was able to dismiss all charges. I recommended him to my friends, and I recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer. His staff is also very helpful and respectful.
Reduced my charges!
Howard represented me for my DUI case a couple months ago. My BAC level was .22 which is pretty high but he was able to reduce my charges in court to a wet reckless. I hope I don’t get another DUI but if I do, Howard would be my first call.
