Are DUI Drivers a Threat to the Power Grid?

Most drivers arrested for a Los Angeles DUI prefer keeping the legal proceedings quiet to avoid possible employment and social repercussions. But when an alleged DUI driver hits a utility pole, knocking out power to hundreds or thousands of people, it can…

Getting caught driving after you’ve had a few too many drinks could land you in jail on a charge of DUI in Los Angeles. But apparently you could also be in trouble, at least as far as your driving abilities, if you drink too few non-alcoholic beverages…

Professional, attentive, concerned and caring, Attorney Michael Kraut, has demonstrated trust, integrity insight in his knowledge of the law and his knowledge of my particular goals. No short cuts or hesitation in finding conclusions resulting in appropriate direction for me, his client; always handled with integrity and respect for the me. He is direct, and very precise in establishing a way forward, always clear and crisp in communication. His ability to handle the large to mundane issues of legal issues is without question. I would recommend Attorney Michael Kraut without hesitation.

I am extremely pleased with my experience with Kraut Law Group. Mike Kraut is extremely knowledgeable, well connected and personable. He was able to get both of my charges dismissed without me ever having to go to court. I would not hesitate to contact him again if I was ever to run into future misfortune.

I recently was arrested for a DUI in Pasadena. After researching many of the top DUI defense attorneys I set up interviews with several of the best. As soon as I met with Pasadena DUI defense attorney Michael Kraut, I knew I wanted him to represent me. Most law firms have an intake staff member and don’t let you talk to the DUI attorney. But Michael Kraut personally met with me and gave me the confidence that I needed. As a professional with a license that could be suspended I knew I needed the best. Mr. Kraut handled the DMV hearing and the court case. The result was amazing. I had entered a DUI checkpoint and blew a .17 on the test. Michael Kraut got me a dry reckless, and in a year the case will be expunged off my record. If you have a DUI in Pasadena I strongly suggest that you hire Michael Kraut.

Michael Kraut saved & changed my life. Here is my experience with him. I was driving with my dog from Los Angeles to Long Beach for a weekend with my girl friend. I was only a few miles away from her place when my night and life went to Hell. I was pulled over by the CHP for reckless driving and arrested for driving under the influence of narcotics. I went to Jail, my dog to the local pound & my car impounded. The previous six months before my arrest, I was suffering from a painful case of Sciatica. I saw several doctors. Each of them trying to find the root of my problem along with giving me some immediate relief for my pain. I received epidurals, steroids and physical therapy but the pain wouldn't go away. I was prescribed MS Contin (morphine), Vicodin, Norco, Percoset, Soma, Flexiril, Xanax and others. I also take Ambien and Adderall. Over time I slowly built up a tolerance and never thought twice that I should of stopped driving. I had the meds in my travel bag in the car. The mistake was I had one prescription bottle with a few different kinds of pills inside but I have the correct label or proof I was prescribed these. Some of the medications back at my home came in bulk size containers, so while staying at her house every few weeks, it was more convenient putting them in one bottle. I told the officer there is zero alcohol in me or any illegal drugs in my system other than what I was prescribed. But after some sobriety tests, I was placed under arrest for a driving under the influence of a narcotic. I received a DUI 6 years ago when I used to drink, so if convicted this would of been my second. A second DUI is more than double the costs, twice the school and possible jail time, so I knew I had to find someone with experience to represent me. I called & met a few of the well known DUI Los Angeles attorneys but every time I hung up or walked out of their office, I felt like they were trying to sell me a used car. I was helpless, depressed and still in tremendous back pain. I continued surfing the web looking for information when I found someone who was also arrested for a prescription drug DUI. He was praising his attorney Michael Kraut. I gave him a call early the next morning and an hour later met with Michael in his Hollywood office. I explained my situation and within minutes I saw a difference from him and the previous attorneys. He could see I was rattled and assured me that he could help, not to worry and focus on my health. I walked out of his office feeling I was in good hands. Within a few days, he handled my DMV hearing, explained how the system works, be patient and stay positive. I received a letter stating the Long Beach Court was charging me with a felony DUI. I called Michael up and he explained the severity of a felony, but assured me we can still get through this. First we need to get it out of the felony court until we worry about fighting the misdemeanor. At my arraignment, there were a few other lawyers representing other cases but none of them had the professionalism and confidence that he carried in the courtroom. It was easy to see his good reputation with the prosecutors, court clerks & the Judge. After he briefly explained the circumstances and my clean criminal record, the judge approved his request for an extension. I felt confident knowing I was in good hands with Michael on my side. At the next hearing, Michael walked in with copies of the prescriptions along with the matching medical records. I could see him relentlessly going back and forth with the Prosecutor fighting for me. Minutes later when my name was called, I stepped up to the Judge with Michael. The Prosecutor told the Judge the medications matched up with my blood from the arrest and asked the judge to dismiss the case. The Judge approved. DISMISSED! My life was changed thanks to Michael Kraut. He is my attorney for life & I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DUI attorney. Its nice to have the best on your side.

Mike Kraut is truly an incredible lawyer!! My brother was falsely charged with domestic violence and could have been charged with a felony if Mike hadn’t intervened. I hired Mike the day after my brother was sent to jail, and within an hour of hiring him, my brother was released on his own recognizance thanks to Mike. I was impressed, but still not sure if he would live up to the recommendations I read online. My brother’s ex-girlfriend also filed a restraining order to prevent my brother from seeing his son. A few weeks later at my brother’s hearing, Mike provided a line of questioning that gave my brother a lot of credibility, and exposed the ex-girlfriend’s lies. He was a genius in the courtroom!! The judge dropped all the charges on the spot… My brother picked up his son the same evening… Amazing! The outcome was much better than we had hoped for. We avoided criminal charges, future court battles, countless hours worrying about a possible criminal record and loss of custody, and probably spent less money than we would have if we had hired a less capable lawyer. I’m so glad we hired Mike Kraut!!
