DUI Attorney in Riverside, California
Driving under the influence charges are a serious matter and can result in severe penalties, including jail time, penalties and job loss. Our DUI attorneys focus on helping clients achieve the results they need, most importantly a reduction or elimination of the charges against them. Because a mismanaged case can easily change your life for the worse, you need a seasoned legal professional to guide you through the legal system and create a strong defense strategy on your behalf. Don’t let one bad decision negatively affect your career, reputation, and finances.
When someone has been arrested for drunk driving, their first question is usually, “Will I go to jail?” While the answer is different for each person, our firm will ask tough questions and examine every aspect of your charge, working tirelessly to get the best possible outcome for your case.
Protecting Your Rights
As your attorney, it’s our job to treat you with the respect and dignity that you deserve, regardless of the circumstances of your case.Together, our lawyers have more than 140 years of experience in criminal law. Our partner, Stephen Levine, has been honored with a board certification by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, a distinction only a few attorneys in the state receive. We combine skill, experience, and compassion to shield you from aggressive prosecutors.
Fighting License Suspension
In California, you have only 10 days after being arrested for a DUI to prevent your license from being either suspended or revoked. Our attorneys frequently represent clients at administrative hearings, including DMV. We have successfully defended a number of clients at those hearings, protecting their driving privileges and enabling them to continue to meet their daily obligations.
If you don’t act quickly to protect your license, you may face one or more of the following consequences as a result of a suspended or revoked license:
The stigma of a drunken driving arrest can have a negative impact on your career. If your job requires you to drive and your license is suspended or revoked, you also risk becoming unemployed.
Difficulty finding a job
Having a DUI on your record can affect your ability to get a new job. A potential employer may feel that you are too much of risk or liability to consider you for employment.
Increased cost of transportation
If you can’t drive, you must find other means of getting to work, losing both time and money. You may have to pay high fees for cab fare, or take public transportation which can cost you extra time.
Daily tasks become more challenging
What if you can’t fulfill your responsibilities such as driving the kids to school or participating in a carpool? What if you can’t respond to any emergency situation because you have to wait for a ride? Losing your license is a loss of independence.
You Don’t Have Time To Waste
Seeking legal assistance within 10 days of your arrest is important. The more time your lawyer has to prepare your case, the greater chance you have of a reduction of your sentence. Don’t let one mistake negatively affect your life.
