During the New Year’s Holiday DUI arrests tend to double due to a number of reasons. While there is an increased number of intoxicated drivers during this time, there is also an escalation in the attentiveness of police officers. As a result, though many DUI arrests around the New Year’s Holiday are genuine, the number of inaccurate arrests also tends to go up.

If you have been arrested under suspicion of DUI, it is easy to feel alone and helpless in face of the charges against you. But please understand that this isn’t the case. After practicing criminal law exclusively for the past 20 years, I and my staff have extensive experience in helping individuals who find themselves in the same situation you are currently in. 

If you have been charged with a crime in Alameda County, please feel free to contact us through our website or by phone at (510) 582-9090. Because of our tenure in criminal law we are in the unique position to fully meet your case’s needs and we can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Lastly, we at the Law Office of Louis J. Goodman would like to urge you to please be safe and responsible as the end of the year approaches. It can be difficult to remember while celebrating, but please make use of a designated driver or taxi service if you are intoxicated at the conclusion of your festivities to ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones and others.
