California DUI penalties

Our Pismo Beach DUI Attorney provides comprehensive driving under the influence (DUI) defense representation. California DUI penalties match the serious nature of the criminal charge. As a lawyer dedicated to helping those charged with DUI, we understand the difficult legal issues you may be facing.

Comprehensive Criminal Defense Representation

Our San Luis Obispo DUI attorney takes a proactive approach to DUI cases. We understand the social stigma and harsh consequences associated with DUI charges. We dissect every detail of your case, from the stop and detention to your breath test and blood test when building your defense. Our goal is to minimize your consequences and provide creative solutions based on your unique situation.

Don't let the shame of a DUI charge prevent you from seeking help. Please call us at 805-546-8797 or contact us online. You are entitled to your constitutional rights.

California DUI License Suspensions

Driving is considered a privilege, not a right, in California. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) oversees California DUI driver's license suspensions. The department imposes mandatory suspensions for DUI charges. Depending on your record, a DUI conviction could result in a three year revocation of your driving privileges.

I provide comprehensive DUI defense representation. I can represent you at the DMV Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing and obtain a restricted license. These special licenses allow you to drive only to and from specific locations. If you are under the age of 21, you can only obtain a restricted license for critical needs. It is important to contact an experienced San Luis Obispo DUI lawyer. Restricted licenses carry complex guidelines and time constraints. You must also complete a mandatory first-time offender program.

Court-Ordered Penalties

DUI charges carry substantial penalties. Our law firm is dedicated to minimizing your consequences through proactive criminal defense strategies. We can provide in-depth, straightforward guidance for your DUI case. We understand the implications of your penalties and strive to protect your rights at every level of your case.

California DUI penalties include:

  • Mandatory jail time
  • Mandatory license suspensions
  • Mandatory fines
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Mandatory DUI Programs 

Negotiations And Trial

Paso Robles driving under the influence attorney Earl E. Conaway, III takes a proactive approach with cases. When it is in your best interest, we will vindicate your rights at trial. 

We understand that trial, at times, may provide the best chance for a favorable outcome. Our goal is to obtain the best possible results under your particular circumstances. If trial is not in your best interest, we attempt to negotiate for reduced charges, such as wet and reckless driving charges, which carry fewer overall penalties.

Probation Violations

Probation includes a strict set of guidelines. If you violate any one rule, you could face probation revocation and time in jail. We can step in and protect your rights when you are accused of being in violation of your probation. We can also attempt to get the terms of your probation modified to minimize your consequences.

We are available to discuss your case and your particular needs at a free initial consultation. Please call us at 805-546-8797 or contact us online.
