Experienced Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout the Bay Area
When possible, we work to keep you out of court altogether, exploring and negotiating alternative sentences, including going to programs, being in a halfway house or weekend jail time. This helps our clients avoid the embarrassment of a courtroom exhibition. Without legal representation on your side, it is unlikely you could achieve such a discreet resolution to your case.
On many occasions, we have proven the DUI testing equipment and tests to be fallible. Through calling into question the means by which they were found to be under the influence, we have helped many clients avoid or minimize consequences of their charges.
Understanding Multiple DUI Violation Charges
For first- and second-time offenders, the goal is often simply to keep the driver’s license. With a suspended driver’s license, your DUI conviction becomes much costlier, as it is increasingly difficult to get to work and earn income.
If this charge is your fourth in 10 years, the consequences become much more serious. Rather than misdemeanor charges, you are up against felony charges, lengthy prison time and a record that will follow you the rest of your life. Since the potential consequences carry such a high risk, we will tirelessly fight the charge on your behalf. We will also review the evidence against you to determine if there is a factual or legal defense, in which case we can prepare a strategy for reducing the charges to a lesser defense.
Were You Involved In A DUI And A Resulting Car Accident?
Get our knowledgeable DUI defense team on your side right away if you are facing charges of DUI after your car accident. If someone died because of the car accident you were involved in, you could be up against vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide charges.
The stakes are even higher in the aftermath of a death following your car accident. The laws are complex with penalties ranging from one year in jail to six years in state prison, depending on the facts in your case and the charges against you. From misdemeanor to felony charges, fighting charges of vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide, we have the experience you need for the best possible outcome.
Our lawyers are also experienced working with immigration issues that may come into play in your case. After being charged with a DUI or vehicular homicide, you could be deported. Rather than risking a deportation, turn to our skilled attorneys who are experienced in immigration issues and helping clients avoid deportation.
