Los Angeles DUI Lawyer

Contest Drunk Driving Charges with a Professional Attorney

Looking for a lawyer for DUI in Los Angeles? If you are convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in California, you will likely lose your license and face criminal penalties including fines, jail time, community service and alcohol counseling. A Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer can help you avoid these penalties by offering you legal representation during the criminal process as well as at your DMV hearing.

In California, many things depend upon your ability to drive. Without a license, how will you get to work, to school or even to the doctor? If you do not work with a skilled attorney and end up losing your driving privileges, you could be stuck relying on public transportation or friends and family members to get anywhere you need to go.

Avoid the High Penalties of DUI Convictions

In California, a driving under the influence case typically consists of two separate charges: driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or above, and driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. This means that it is possible to be charged with driving under the influence even if your blood alcohol concentration was not tested or if your BAC was below the legal limit. If you are under 21, you cannot drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .01% or higher.

Some penalties you may experience upon your first DUI conviction in California include:

  • Up to $1800 in fines and assessments
  • Six months behind bars
  • Six months license suspension
  • Additional five month restriction license program
  • Mandatory rehabilitation
  • Ignition interlock breath testing device installed on your car

If you are facing conviction of a second or third DUI, you can expect the punishments to be escalated. If a traffic collision occurred while you were intoxicated behind the wheel, penalties will also be much higher.
