You always want a competent DUI attorney to review your case. Although there are not always issues that rise to the level that we can get the case dismissed, there are plenty of cases where we are able to do just that. DUI cases are unique in that there are two fronts to fight: 1. Criminal Charges in Court; 2. DMV. There are ways to win your DMV hearing that don’t apply to your court case and ways to win your court case that don’t apply to the DMV. It can get very complicated as they are not related and operate independently of each other.

DUI Penalties

DUI penalties vary according to a number of factors including but not limited to: 1. Prior Offenses; 2. BAC level; 3. Collision; 4. Injury. A skilled attorney can help lessen the charges or have them dismissed.

First Offense

First Offense DUI (Misdemeanor) may result in a loss of license for six to ten months and loss of commercial license for one year. That is why it is critical to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you waive your right to a hearing which will result in a license suspension thirty-one days after your arrest. Mr. Price has successfully defended many people at the DMV and kept them driving.

In Court, penalties of a first offense DUI range from a three to nine-month alcohol class, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) class, Public Work Service, up to six months in jail, possible interlock ignition device installation, and fines.

Second Offense

Second Offense DUI within ten years from your first offense (Misdemeanor) may result in a loss of license for two years and loss of commercial license for life. That is why it is critical to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you waive your right to a hearing which will result in a license suspension thirty-one days after your arrest. Mr. Price has successfully defended many people at the DMV and kept them driving.

In Court, penalties of a second offense DUI range from an eighteen-month alcohol class, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) class, Public Work Service, up to one year in jail, possible interlock ignition device installation, and fines.

Third Offense

Third Offense DUI within ten years from your first offense (Misdemeanor) may result in a loss of license for three to ten years and loss of commercial license for life. That is why it is critical to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you waive your right to a hearing which will result in a license suspension thirty-one days after your arrest. Mr. Price has successfully defended many people at the DMV and kept them driving.

In Court, penalties of a third offense DUI range from an eighteen to thirty-month alcohol class, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) class, Public Work Service, up to one year in jail, possible interlock ignition device installation, and fines.

Fourth Offense

Fourth Offense DUI within ten years from your first offense elevates an otherwise standard DUI to a felony offense. It may result in a loss of license for four to ten years and loss of commercial license for life. That is why it is critical to request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you waive your right to a hearing which will result in a license suspension thirty-one days after your arrest. Mr. Price has successfully defended many people at the DMV and kept them driving.

In Court, penalties of a fourth offense DUI range from an eighteen-month alcohol class, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) class, Public Work Service, up to three years in prison, possible interlock ignition device installation, and fines.

You Need to Request a DMV Hearing

You must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest date. The arresting officer likely confiscated your California driver’s license and served you with a pink DMV Temporary license. This Pink Temporary license allows you to drive for 30 days, as long as you had a valid license prior to this incident. However, if you fail to request a hearing within 10 days, you lose your ability to fight against a license suspension and the DMV will automatically suspend your license after 30 days. The length of suspension varies depending on the number of prior DUI offenses and the circumstances at the time of your arrest.

How Long Will My DUI Case Take?

DUI cases can be extremely complex and difficult to navigate. With our expertise, we will guide you through the process and advise you of every option along the way. It is such a game of speculation until we get the police report(s), calibration records, lab packets and all of the necessary information we need to fully advise you. Oftentimes, this is a long process (at least 4-9 months), and it can take a while to receive all of the relevant material. We ask for your patience as we gather all of the necessary information to properly defend your case. It could take up to a month or two to even get the police report(s).

Philosophy

Why do our clients choose us?

I center my full service DUI practice around each individual client.  No one client is more important than the other and every single client gets 110% of my attention on their case.  My high rate of DUI dismissals and DMV wins is based on the individual attention that every case gets from me personally.

 Every single type of DUI case can be won:  no matter if you have a .30 BAC or were involved in a bad collision.  Too many people look at the negatives of these cases and give up.  I personally guarantee that I will fight to do everything possible to have your case dismissed!
