DUI or Criminal Offence

If you've been charged with DUI or a criminal offense, you are faced with a broad range of possible outcomes. You could be acquitted, or end up entering into a plea agreement, that results in no jail time. Conversely, you could be convicted, and sentenced to serve time in a state prison, or your resolution could fall somewhere in between. Having a criminal defense lawyer to guide you through the legal process is vital. We will advocate for your rights. The criminal justice system is designed to give you a chance to get back on the right track after your first offense. To take full advantage of this second chance, it's important to start taking steps immediately to ensure that your first offense will be your last offense. If you have been charged with DUI, enroll in a substance abuse treatment program, even if you don't feel like you have a problem. Find transportation so you can keep your job. Stay in school. Show that you are taking responsibility and are taking action to avoid becoming a repeat offender. If you're involved in a criminal investigation, do not speak to law enforcement without a criminal defense lawyer present, even if you haven't done anything wrong. Your lawyer is your guide through the legal system, and will have valuable advice about the options available to you.

Sometimes people are overcharged by the police with multiple misdemeanors and felonies added on. Your lawyer serves as the go-between, negotiating with the District Attorney's office to eliminate extra charges and work out a resolution. We have a good relationship with the District Attorney's office, and our experience gives us unique insight into the possibilities available in terms of dismissed charges and sentencing. We are well aware of how expensive a DUI or criminal charge can be, and our fees are set with that in mind. All fees will be discussed in advance.
