Being convicted of a DUI subjects you to a variety of potential consequences, both from the court and the DMV. For this reason, if you are facing DUI charges, you need to do everything you can to prevent a conviction. To protect yourself in court, you need representation from a Fullerton DUI Attorney who understands these charges and can help you build a strong defense.
About DUI in Fullerton
If a law enforcement official suspects that you may be operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will be charged with driving under the influence, or DUI. You may be charged with this offense if your blood alcohol content is greater than 0.08 percent, or if the officer has another reason to believe you may be intoxicated while driving.
The penalties for a DUI conviction vary based on several factors but may include time in jail or prison, fines, the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license and/or the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device. Previous DUI convictions typically result in harsher consequences for subsequent charges. For example, 2nd time DUI convictions usually have more significant sentences than a first conviction.
Hiring a DUI Lawyer
If you are facing DUI charges in Fullerton, having a qualified DUI attorney on your side is essential. I have 18 years of DUI defense experience dealing with both the courts and the DMV in Fullerton. Many lawyers in the field neglect the DMV process and fail to properly protect a client’s license. I understand that proper DUI defense involves dealing with both the court and the DMV, and I will fight your case on both of these fronts.
I know that winning means keeping your license and staying out of jail. I fight every license suspension every time. If I beat the DMV, your license stays valid. If I fight and lose at the DMV and your license gets taken away, my job is not complete until I help you get your suspended license back.
