DUI Defense

If you have been arrested for a DUI, you are not alone. The early intervention and advice by an experienced DUI attorney can minimize or even eliminate this offense from tarnishing your good record.  We aggressively defend DUI charges both in court and at DMV hearings, by strategizing with clients to develop an effective defense.

What is the legal limit?

California state law prohibits persons from driving a motor vehicle when their blood alcohol level (BAC) is a .08% or more. It is not necessary for a prosecutor to prove that the driver was even impaired, but merely that he or she met or exceeded the .08% level limit.

Drivers under the Age of 21

Underage drivers even face lower legal BAC limits. The DMV has also taken an extremely hard stance in requiring a one-year license suspension for all drivers under the age of twenty-one charged with having an alcohol level of .01% (BAC) or more.

DMV Hearing

If you have been charged with a DUI you may not have to lose your license.  Timing is essential to protecting your driving privileges.  Within 10 days of being charged with a DUI a DMV hearing must be requested.  Our firm will make this request on your behalf.  There are many factors that are taken into account when the DMV decides whether or not to suspend your driving privileges.  Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to present your best defense to DMV.

Expungement Hearing

An Expungement is a process by which a conviction or plea of either Guilty or No Contest in a criminal case is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves you the defendant of certain penalties and disabilities that result from a criminal action. You can file an Expungement petition after you have fulfilled all terms of probation, or have been discharged from the original term of probation, or have not been placed on probation and all your sentence terms have been completed.
