Client Reviews From DUI - EtG Test Cases

“Got my DUI charged dropped!!! Very honest and experienced! Very easy to talk too! Saved my CDL license! Tulsa's #1 DUI Attorney, Truly the best!!!! P.C. 1/24/19

“This was my second DUI charge. I don’t believe I was impaired either time. The first time I paid a bundle and ended up having to do probation, classes, and have an interlock. This time I hired Boeheim Freeman Law and they fought the officer’s claim I was intoxicated and it ended up getting dismissed. They also fought the revocation of my license and won. The best part is they cost half of what I paid last time.” A.B. 10/15/19

  1. If you have been falsely accused of drinking we need to have you take an EtG test as soon as possible,

  2. you only have 15 days to challenge the suspension of your license,

  3. early subpoenaing of dash cam video and chemical breath testing service logs makes for a quicker resolution,

  4. depending on your immigration status receiving a reasonable bond from the state may make all the difference between sitting in jail or at home awaiting resolution of your case.

EtG Urine Alcohol Test

The ethyl glucuronide (EtG) test is widely used to detect the presence of ethyl glucuronide in your urine. EtG is a breakdown product of ethanol, the intoxicating agent in alcohol. EtG can be found in your blood, hair, and nails, but the urine test is the most widely used. This test will detect ingestion of Ethyl Alcohol within the past 80 hours.  EtG is a metabolite of Ethyl Alcohol, and can be detected for longer periods of time after ingestion than simply testing for Ethyl Alcohol, which is why it is important to get this test done as soon as possible.

After consuming alcohol only about 0.5 percent to 1.5 percent of it is eliminated in your urine. That's after it undergoes a process called glucuronidation to form the breakdown product EtG.  The EtG test is quite sensitive and can detect even low levels of alcohol. In fact, the test can detect alcohol in the urine up to five days after consumption.
