Experienced DUI Defense Attorney Serving Clients Throughout Marin County

San Rafael DUI Lawyer

DUI arrests are a priority for the San Rafael Police Department, Marin County Sheriff's Office and California Highway Patrol. A DUI arrest in Marin County is serious criminal case which initiates a separate California Department of Motor Vehicles driver's license suspension action. For that reason, you should read the information contained in this website and seriously consider hiring an attorney specializing in representing good people who have made the mistake of driving after drinking in Marin County.

After reading the information in the pages which follow, feel free to call Robert Tayac if you have any questions or want an attorney for yourself, a family member or anyone you know who has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in San Rafael or any other Marin County community.

Marin County DUI arrests initiate two separate cases. The first DUI case is a criminal case and will be prosecuted by the Marin County District Attorney's office at the Marin County courthouse in San Rafael. The second DUI case is a DMV license suspension action which will be prosecuted by the California DMV Driver Safety Office located at 1377 Fell Street in San Francisco.

The consequences of a Marin County DUI conviction are severe and may result in a driver's license suspension, probation, mandatory DUI school attendance, fines, and increased insurance premiums. Additional consequence may be imposed if you work in law enforcement, are a fire fighter, nurse, physician or lawyer. A second Marin County DUI conviction will result in jail and mandatory impound of the driver's car. Although Robert Tayac's goal is to win the Marin County DUI case, as an experienced DUI lawyer he will minimize the impact of a conviction to the full extent possible and ensure the case is properly handled.
