Pasadena BUI Attorney

Boating Under the Influence (BUI)

BUI stands for boating under the influence, the crime of operating a watercraft under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  Whether you are operating a yacht, sailboat, fishing boat, personal watercraft or sailboard, you can be charged with BUI.  It is important that you contact a Pasadena DUI lawyer immediately, as there can be heavy consequences involved, such as:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Increased boater and auto insurance
  • Boating license suspension or revocation
  • Ramifications affecting your driver's license
  • Mandatory drug counseling
  • A criminal record

More severe penalties may be leveled at repeat offenders, those who had minors on board at the time of the incident, or those who gave drugs or alcohol to minors on board.

Pasadena DUI Attorney in Altadena, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, San Marino & Sierra Madre

At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we are familiar with the intricacies of BUI cases and can therefore address your charges with great competence.  We consolidate our knowledge and skill by regularly attending seminars on such matters.  We are passionate about defending your rights and will begin with a thorough review of your case. 

A watercraft may not be operated with a BAC of .08% or higher, or .01% or higher for those under 21.  Despite the existence of these legal BAC limits, you may be charged with BUI without a chemical test if an officer deems you impaired by drugs or alcohol.  Field sobriety tests are often used to determine this, yet they can be administered or judged inappropriately and incorrectly.  At times, certain circumstances can invalidate evidence against you and possibly save you from such harsh consequences.  Whatever the situation, we will approach your case with the intention of achieving the best possible outcome for you.

Contact a Pasadena BUI Attorney if you have been charged with boating under the influence.
