I can appear in court for you, so in most cases you will never have to take time off work to go to court for the MULTIPLE court dates that take up hours at a time; and in this economy not only will you be saving money from lost wages by having me go to court for you, but taking time off work for several court appearances may cost you your job. I file forms with the courts in Oakland, Pleasanton, Richmond, San Francisco, San Jose, Walnut Creek, and all other Bay Area Cities that allow me to appear for you in most cases. At the same time, I will be handling your DMV case for your driver's license that the police took. Depending on your case, I may not need you to take time off for this hearing either.
You don't know the law. The police have already taken advantage of this fact while having you answer questions and do field sobriety tests (FSTs) in the street; which you didn't have to do, and now these answers and FSTs will be used against you. I have been appearing in all of the Bay Area courts for 20 years on a regular basis successfully defending people just like you. Remember, every person has certain likes and dislikes. Through my many years of appearing in all of the Bay Area courts, I have learned what the likes and dislikes are for each of the Judges and Deputy District Attorneys that I have to deal with on your behalf to help get the best results in your case.
I have never had a client go to jail on a 1st time DUI charge, and at the same time, I have saved a lot of client's driver's licenses at the DMV hearings all over the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area. In addition, I have had many of these criminal charges reduced and dismissed. Even people who have had 2nd time DUI charges, and they carry penalties of up to one (1) year in the county jail, in 99% of the cases, I have kept them out of jail, and saved their driver's license. In fact, I have had some clients with 3rd time DUI charges, and that carries a mandatory four (4) months in jail, and up to one (1) year in jail, convicted as a 2nd time DUI without jail time. These are just some of the reasons you should use my skillful DUI defense experience in your case at very affordable rates. Call now (510) 346-6666.
The legal process is confusing, so you need an experienced DUI lawyer to not only work through the criminal process to keep you out of jail, but handle your DMV hearing to try and save your driving privilege. This is a long process which is why we take the time to explain this process to you as I understand your anxiety of not wanting to return to jail, lose your job, and keep your driving privilege.
Yes, it is your first DUI, but that is the time to fight when the penalties will be the smallest of any DUI charge should you lose. Your case may be dismissed, reduced or even go to trial, but you need all of this information to protect you, and a good DUI lawyer knows what to look for and how to get it for your case; remember, all lawyers are not equal.
You are probably asking yourself, what will happen to me? That will depend on your particular circumstances of your stop, information that you gave to the officer, the test you took, how the tests were administered, and the maintenance of the machines used for your test. I don't know what the exact facts are in your case, but I can tell you that in almost two (2) decades of defending people with DUI charges in San Francisco, Oakland, Pleasanton, Richmond, Fremont, San Jose, Walnut Creek, Hayward, and the other cities of the Bay Area, I have never had a client go to jail on a first time DUI. Many of the cases that I have handled have been reduced in charge and penalty. Some have been dismissed, and others have gone to trial with acquittals. There is a list of general penalties, but remember, in every case, there is a human factor, and that makes the difference. In addition to everything above, I have also saved the driving privilege at the DMV hearing for many of my clients. Call me now for a FREE Consultation at: (510) 346-6666 or Toll Free 1(800) 690-4DUI) When you call I will contact the DMV for you at NO CHARGE to make sure that you do not go pass the ten (10) day time limit you have to request the hearing.
