When is it legal for your car to be searched?

California residents who get pulled over on suspicion of a DUI may end up in a situation where the police ask to search the car, or go ahead with a search regardless of your permission. But is it legal for them to search without a warrant? Just when the police search your vehicle?

How do I know if I should sue?

When faced with a legal issue in California, an attorney will encourage a consultation, either by phone or in-person, not to convince you that you should sue but to ascertain the nature of the dispute and the strength of your position. To do so, the attorney must obtain necessary facts and evaluate whether it would be prudent and in your best interests to litigate the issue. If your case does not involve a criminal complaint against you, then you are most likely facing an issue that will be handled in a division of the civil courts.
