(People v. J.T. (2012): LAX)
What began as a random and routine traffic stop turned into a full-blown DUI stop leading to our client’s arrest. In the beginning the City Attorney’s Office, who deals with misdemeanor DUI cases in Los Angeles County, refused to give anything but a DUI. Our office shed light on the probable cause regarding the stop as well as the efficacy of the breathalyzer test. After numerous negotiations between the attorneys of Margolin and Lawrence and the City Attorney assigned to the case, as well as supervising City Attorneys, the client go the result he was aiming for – a dry and reckless.
