Most California DUI arrests begin with a traffic stop or a checkpoint. The officer asks you to perform a series of field sobriety tests and to blow twice into a handheld breathalyzer. After arrest, the cop usually will ask you to take a blood or breath test at the police station, jail or hospital (you’re required by law to take this test…refusing the chemical test may result in tougher California DUI penalties and a one-year drivers license suspension).

He’s been on the other side of the courtroom, and he knows what questions they’re going to ask before they even ask them. That gives him, and his clients and advantage that not all defense attorneys can provide.
There is no such thing as a “minor” criminal charge. This is particularly true if you are a permanent immigrant, non-immigrant, or an undocumented alien. A criminal charge, whether it a misdemeanor or a felony, can create serious consequences. The stakes can be high because a conviction will often include paying heavy fines, some local jail time or long term imprisonment.

You will personally meet with and speak with me throughout the duration of your case. If you have been arrested, please do not hesitate to contact me immediately to discuss your case at no charge!
