Appreciate the response. How much should I expect to spend going to trial? Most of the work has been done (discovery, DMV hearing, etc) at this point. I am moving to Sacramento in a couple weeks for work so not sure how easy it will be for me to get back for trial. Thanks again.

The range depends on the attorney. Anywhere from 5-10K, but worth every penny with what's on the line. Also, if your attorney lost the DMV hearing, a not guilty jury trial verdict on the 23152(b) charge will reverse the suspension once DMV is properly notified.

This is the most sage advice you have been offered. If your present attorney "has bigger fish to fry" then he is not giving you and your case his utmost attention. He has a fiduciary duty to YOU, to give his best efforts on YOUR case. If you hired the wrong attorney, you need to find the right one. You need an attorney with expertise in DUI, the skills to take your case to trial and the passion to win. Your case has numerous good facts that a skilled DUI trial attorney could use to compromise the Prosecution’s case and create reasonable doubt. I would be happy to discuss your case with you.
