Unlawful Police Stops in San Diego
Each and every day in San Diego, drivers are pulled over by police officers unlawfully. In order for the police stop to be considered a “legal”, the police officer must first have probable cause to believe that you are breaking the law and to pull you over to further investigate the situation. If an officer does not have a legitimate reason to believe you are breaking the law, it is considered to be a violation of your constitutional rights and your case could be dismissed.
If you or someone you know has been pulled over unlawfully by a police officer, and it resulted in being charged for DUI, a knowledgable defense attorney from DUI Crew will fight to protect your constitutional rights. In order to have a successful case, your attorney will need to prove that the stop was unwarranted and the officer violated your rights by pulling you over. The attorneys at DUI Crew will do everything possible to try to prove the police stop was unlawful.
When an Unlawful Police Stop Results in a DUI Arrest
In order for a police stop to be considered lawful, the police officer must observe irregular driving behavior that could indicate that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs before they pull them over. When observed, the following behaviors may give the officer reasonable cause to pull you over:
- Reckless driving
- Driving too slow
- Disobeying traffic laws, signs, signals or lights
- Weaving between lanes
- Not having headlights on after dark
- If you feel that your constitutional rights have been violated because a police officer pulled you over unreasonably and it resulted in DUI charges, you need to speak to one of the attorneys at DUI Crew to find out what we can do to help. Your San Diego DUI lawyer will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case in efforts to prove that the officer did not have reasonable cause to stop you for driving under the influence, which could possibly result in the dismissal of 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.
