Proven Defense for Drunk Driving Cases
In the state of California, DUI (driving under the influence) is a criminal offense that involves serious legal consequences. The mistake that too many people make after being charged with DUI is taking their charges lightly.
When a person has been charged with DUI, he/she needs to be aware that a conviction can lead to life-altering legal consequences such as:
- Monetary fines
- Jail time
Additionally, a person may lose his/her driving privileges for a set period of time. With the legal penalties being so severe, it is never in a person’s best interest to make light of their DUI charges. Instead, people who have been charged with DUI need to place every effort into their defense, and that process begins with hiring the right DUI defense attorney.

If you do not act immediately, you could lose your right to drive.
“They answered all my collect calls from jail and went above and beyond what I expected.”
“I was finally treated fairly by the DMV because I had a competent and prepared attorney.”
“For those in need – give them a call”
“I’m really pleased with the outcome, especially the recent DMV decision.”
“She treated me like I was the most important call of the day. She listened carefully and respectfully.”
“She is great! I could have not picked a better attorney office to serve.”
When you are arrested for DUI, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver’s license and give you a “notice of suspension” that will serve as a temporary license. California law requires you to choose between a breath or blood test if lawfully arrested.
If you failed to complete or declined/refused a breath test or blood test, the DMV will begin suspension proceedings starting on the 31st day after your arrest.
You must contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest in order to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license, or it will be suspended regardless of the outcome of your case.
