DUIs are serious charges not to be taken lightly. They can lead to serious consequences against one’s record, possible driver’s license suspensions, revocations, being on probation and in some cases, the possibility of jail time. We are well aware of the substantive and technical defenses to these charges, which with the help of our criminalist can assist in achieving the best results possible for our clients. These results can include reduction and/or dismissal of charges, as well as substantial mitigation of the most serious consequences, including avoiding actual time in jail. In order to establish probable cause Police Officers can rely on field sobriety tests; however, such tests are not completely reliable and a knowledgeable attorney can expose errors where applicable in a way that the tests were performed and interpreted. In addition, chemical tests, like breath, blood, or urine are not always error-proof. Blood testing advices will give erroneous results due to improper calibration and maintenance. Certainly we thoroughly review all evidence of the prosecution and make every effort to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, as well as the testing procedure, which can frequently lead to reduced consequences to the client.

Don’t face a DUI charge alone. We are highly experienced and can skillfully aid you in resolving your charges as favorably as possible to your satisfaction.

Our results include the following:

  • For Felony DUI cases, with great bodily injury the results include the dismissal of felonies and charges reduced to misdemeanor with no actual jail time.
  • For a third DUI offense we obtained no actual jail time at all.
  • For a second time DUI in five years we got the charges reduced to a wet reckless with the DUI charges dismissed. No license suspension and home confinement only.
  • Third time DUI District Attorney wanted 300 days in jail but we obtained a reduction of 40% jail time.
  • Second DUI within one month of the first, no actual jail time with a rehab program.

Criminal Law

It is critically important that people charged, rightly or wrongly with criminal matters consult a highly experienced, skilled attorney to protect their constitutional rights, including their presumption of innocence and the right not to incriminate one’s self to the authorities. It is highly important to remember that criminal proceedings are adversarial in nature. The other side primarily there to build a case against the prospective defendant and has no hesitation in attempting to get the prospective defendant to incriminate one’s self to the authorities. This applies whether the client feels he or she may be guilty. When a client is faced with criminal charges in Orange County, they need an attorney who will tenaciously represent him to the fullest extent possible in obtaining dismissals and/or reduction of charges and consequences. We have won numerous cases with our years of experience and well-honed courtroom skills and the tactics necessary to obtain the best results for our clients.

  • Prospective defendants do not need to help the prosecution build a case against them! Thus, it is critical to consult an experienced, knowledgeable attorney to defend one’s constitutional rights and act as a buffer between the accused and the adversarial authority. Do not help the prosecution make a case against you!
  • Sample results in criminal matters include felony assault with deadly weapon, with a strike allegation resolved for a misdemeanor with dismissal of the felony and strike allegation.
  • Embezzlement and false ID charges dismissed on completion of appropriate program.
  • Two felony sexual assault charges dismissed with a plea to misdemeanors with no actual jail time.
  • We were able to intervene in a timely fashion on alleged domestic violence charges and avoid the filing of charges against the defendant.
  • We were able to intervene in a timely fashion in alleged hit-and-run charges and avoid the filing of any charges against the defendant.

Juvenile Law

Juvenile court proceedings are a critically important area of our practice. This is an excellent opportunity to nip present and possible future problems in the bud. We have long term quality and successful experience in Juvenile Court and can expertly guide clients through the Juvenile Court process. It is critical that a skillful and experienced attorney be consulted for Juvenile Court matters to provide the assistance needed to successfully resolve Juvenile Court proceedings. Our Juvenile Court results include many reductions and dismissals of the primary charges with avoidance of time in custody in Juvenile Hall.

Traffic & Motor Vehicle Offenses

Traffic and motor vehicle and DMV matters are not to be taken lightly. If not properly and skillfully handled the chances are more likely to involved adverse consequences against one’s driver’s license and cost of insurance. Multiple convictions and more serious offenses against one’s record can result in negligent operator hearings by the Department of Motor Vehicles where the DMV will pursue possible suspensions of driving privileges.

  • We can use our experience and skill to favorably resolve a great percentage of traffic charges.
  • Our results include many dismissals and avoidance of points against our client’s multiple records. This is critical, particularly where there may be prior charges and points against the client’s record, even if they were sustained in other states.
