The DUI defense attorneys at Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin, LLP, are former Senior DUI prosecutors with extensive experience in courtroom litigation and in developing successful DUI defense strategies.

In a DUI misdemeanor or felony case, the burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. To defend your case, our expert Ventura County and Simi Valley DUI attorneys will search for problems of proof in the state’s courtroom evidence. The defense lawyers examine the following issues:
• The legality of the traffic stop
• The lawfulness of the search, if any, of your car or person
• Your performance on the Field Sobriety Tests
• Whether or not a Drug Recognition Expert was employed by law enforcement
• If chemical testing was conducted within all the proper guidelines specified in Title 17 of the California Regulations
• Whether the blood-alcohol machines used were properly calibrated or had previous malfunction issues
• Many symptoms that police officers believe to be symptoms of intoxication are merely signs of illness. In many cases, the officers lack the knowledge needed to distinguish between an illness and intoxication, as they have never previously met the person being arrested
• Overall errors and misstatements made by officers in the police reports
• Prior complaints, if any, that officers have in their personnel file
