Everyone makes mistakes. Choosing to get behind the wheel after drinking can lead to a host of bad consequences.

A Lawyer Who Will Fight To Protect Your Legal Rights And Best Interests
Here in California, a DUI conviction could mean time in jail, expensive fines and court costs and license suspension. Although they are not criminal penalties, you could also face skyrocketing insurance rates. A criminal conviction could also cost you your job.
It is important to work with an attorney to explore your options before pleading guilty. An attempt to put the whole episode behind you could end up having negative effects for years to come.
As your lawyer, I can investigate all of the details of your arrest, including if breath or blood testing equipment was working properly, if police had probable cause to pull you over and if you were the victim of an illegal search and seizure.
I also have experience with alternative punishments, such as alcohol treatment, that can keep your arrest record clean, allowing you to truly move on with your life.
