Anyone charged with DUI—whether it is a first, second, or third DUI—is facing serious penalties, including the suspension of your driving privileges, imprisonment, probation, mandatory DUI education programs, and hefty fines. This is because the moment a drunk driver gets behind the wheel they are putting their life and the lives of others at risk. Do not expect any leniency if you are arrested or charged with a DUI. California law enforcement and state prosecutors work hard to convict those suspected of driving under the influence.
Leaving the scene of a DUI accident is one of the worst things an individual can do. We understand you may feel an irrational need to flee because you are worried about what will happen if you are arrested. We also know that a hit and run charge, in addition to a DUI charge, means you will be facing harsher penalties and put your freedom, future, and livelihood at risk. If this has happened to you, we strongly urge you contact the legal team at our firm immediately. Our attorneys can act quickly to evaluate your case, analyze accident and police reports, review eyewitness statements, verify that field sobriety, breath, and blood tests were administered properly, and more—all in order to build an effective and aggressive defense for you.
