Assertive Representation During Criminal and Administrative Proceedings

In California, when you are stopped for DUI/DWI, the arrest triggers a DMV administrative suspension proceeding. During the 10 days following your arrest, you can request an administrative hearing before the California Department of Motor Vehicles. We can represent you at this hearing, and work to help you avoid a lengthy license suspension.

As your criminal proceedings unfold, our staff will work to challenge the legal basis for your traffic stop and examine the evidence against you. Any information garnered during our investigation will then be used to exploit the weaknesses in the prosecution's case, empowering you throughout the plea negotiation process or during the ensuing court trial.
