DUIs are not a big deal: In fact, a DUI conviction can substantially change your life. Fines,
license suspension, possible imprisonment, DUI classes, and a criminal record can be the consequences of a conviction. If there were injuries involved or you have
multiple DUI offenses on your record, you are looking at a possible felony charge and time in a state prison. Additionally, you may be required to pay restitution for those injured. The right attorney can be essential in protecting your rights and future when facing these serious charges.

DUI defense. An experienced DUI attorney is a must in these cases.
- In order to successfully fight a DUI charge, an accused will have to go to trial: Less than 10% of all DUI cases end up in trial. We are highly experienced litigators however, in the event your case did need a trial.
- The penalties for driving while under the influence of a legal or illegal drug are less severe than penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol (with a BAC of .08% or more ): The reality is that, depending on the circumstances, the penalties for driving under the influence of drugs can be just as severe as those for alcohol-related DUI.
