DUI / IRP Defense Lawyer in Surrey, BC
DUI Trial & Roadside Suspension Appeals Experts
WARNING! Under British Columbia DUI Laws for Immediate Roadside & Administrative Driving Prohibitions and Suspensions, you can be detained and prohibited from driving on the spot for a BAC as low as .05!
You’re certainly not driving impaired or drunk driving, but the police officer pulls you over for no apparent reason. The Officer is now investigator, detainer, fact finder, judge, jury and instant executioner. You’re told to blow into a machine.
Your car is now towed for 30 days, you can’t drive for at least 90 days and you have no right to a lawyer – despite not being impaired. You call a cab to get home. How will you get to work tomorrow? How will the kids get to school? Want 3 months of the Bus and bumming rides while you wait to get your license back? Don’t think so. Facing DUI or impaired driving charges? What do you do next?
First, go to the Responsible Driver Program (RDP) at over $900. Second, install an Ignition Interlock into any car ($1,500) you will be driving, for at least 1 year. The interlock tests the driver’s breath sample each time you start the car. You will have to complete both RDP and the Ignition Interlock Program before you can even get your license. Recent article that cites delays of 2-6 weeks just to get the machine. So your 90 day DUI suspension may potentially become a 4-5 month delay! We understand the stress, hardship and bewilderment that you are experiencing.
When you receive a DUI, the chips are stacked against you. YOU NEED TO GET THE BEST DEFENSE YOU CAN. The OSMV does NOT consider hardship or compassionate grounds. How to deal with it? What are your chances of winning the appeal or review? Forget about sifting through ads for the top DUI lawyer. The only thing that will work are refined legal arguments with facts attacking the narrow enumerated grounds within the legal framework of the statute. This requires honed skills that D. Gosal & Associates have acquired over the last decade representing clients in DUI Criminal Trials.
