DUI Attorneys need to point out all the things the person did correctly on the field sobriety tests in California drunk driving cases

San Diego or California DUI Field Sobriety Tests, also known as FST's, are used regularly by officers in determining to make an arrest, but more importantly, as evidence gathered with the intent to write a report which will support a drunk driving conviction.

So California criminal defense lawyers face the task of figuring out what exactly is missing from the officer's report or testimony in a California DUI case.

The last thing drunk driving defense attorneys want to focus on is the things the driver did wrong.

What happens is the California officer notes all the wrong things but leaves out all the good things. So it is up to the lawyers to point out all the things the person did correct.

Because when you add up the things the person did correct, there's alot more there than the things the person supposedly did wrong.
