Arrested for DUI? What are your defenses?

If you've recently been arrested for DUI, you need to contact The Castillo Law Office for a strong and capable defense. Oakland DUI Attorney, Ernesto Castillo has years of experience in the field of criminal law, and has defended even the most complex of DUI cases. He is selected for inclusion in California's Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list for 2013, and he was awarded the Client Distinction Award by Martindale-Hubbell®.

DUI is one offense that ordinary people get arrested for every day, thereby placing normally law-abiding citizens in a tough situation where they face the possibility of license suspension, skyrocketing insurance premiums, and a criminal record which could affect their ability to find gainful employment.

In the face of DUI charges, it's critical that you do not give up the fight and you exercise every available DUI defense at your disposal!

DUI Defenses that Actually Work

It's common for people who are arrested for DUI to immediately think their situation is hopeless. This is a mistake! There are always ways to win a DUI case, but it takes a seasoned DUI attorney who knows how to successfully fight a DUI case.

Did the police officer have probable cause to stop you? Was the DUI checkpoint set up legally? Were the field sobriety tests performed in accordance with federal guidelines? Was the chemical test analyzed correctly? Do you have a medical condition that could have affected your blood alcohol reading?

At The Castillo Law Office, we know how to challenge the computer programs that are used to run breath testing instruments. In the past, DUI attorneys have exposed deceit and fraudulent record keeping at major forensic laboratories, resulting in the overturning of thousands of DUI cases across the nation. Even police officer misconduct has led to getting DUI evidence thrown out of court.

Hear it From A Few
Of Our Clients

  • I can't thank Ernie enough for investing his time and sincere efforts to helping my family out. He truly is a master of his craft.

    “A few years back, Ernie Castillo represented a family member of mine who was charged with a vehicular offense. Although minor compared to the high profile cases Ernie is accustomed to, Ernie took the case with the utmost professionalism and was able to reduce the charge so that my family member's record was not affected. I can't thank Ernie enough for investing his time and sincere efforts to helping my family out. He truly is a master of his craft.”


  • I would recommend Mr. Castillo without any reservation.

    “Ernie Castillo was highly recommended to us. I researched and interviewed a few attorneys before making a decision of who we were going to select. It's so tough selecting when you're skeptical with the horror stories of attorney's not feeling the passion for their work but the money. After long conversations my husband and I decided to go with Ernie to represent our son in a serious case with multiple charges. We were not disappointed at all. Mr. Castillo expertise exceeded our expectations. His was thorough, he kept us up to date on the case, answered all our questions, returned our calls in a timely manner, he's truly a genuine and sincere person. Most of all his knowledge in handling the case was remarkable. I can't express thanks enough to Ernie for the spectacular job he did defending my son who was facing years in jail. He took a stressful situation and relieved it with a positive outcome. I would recommend Mr. Castillo without any reservation.”


  • I would highly recommend Mr Castillo to anyone.

    “Mr Castillo represented me on a criminal case in which I was falsely accused in 2012. He took over the case from a previous lawyer who was less aggressive and not actively pursing my defense. Mr Castillo is a confident, aggressive and very persistent lawyer. He kept my family and I up to date on the case and also returned our calls on time. Mr Castillo persuaded me not to take any deal and wanted take the case to trial because he was confident that he would win. With the Lord's guidance and Ernie's aggressiveness my case was dismissed. I would highly recommend Mr Castillo to anyone.”
