Dedicated DUI Defense Attorney Backed by More Than 20 Years of Legal Experience

What To Do First

Being arrested for driving under the influence or DUI in Marin County is a life changing experience. Good people are unprepared when stopped by a police officer, Marin County Sheriff's deputy or California Highway Patrol officer and investigated for suspicion of drunk driving. Following an arrest for driving under the influence and faced with DUI charges, many intelligent people make critical mistakes in the days which follow which can increase the damaging consequences flowing from a Marin County DUI arrest.

The most common mistakes can increase the time and ultimate cost of managing a DUI and its many consequences. Additionally, mishandling a Marin County DUI case can lead to a loss of freedom, long (or longer) license suspension, ignition interlock device installation in your vehicle and an additional arrest with its own consequences. The fact is, most lawyers are not familiar with California DUI law, and do not have the specialized legal experience to avoid making critical mistakes.

If you have been charged with or arrested for DUI in Marin County, the first thing you should do is contact an experienced local attorney specializing in Marin County DUI cases and California DMV hearings. From the very beginning of the legal process, your attorney should provide you with accurate information and advice to protect your interests.

An experienced DUI lawyer can do many things for their DUI clients that their clients cannot do for themselves.

If you are committed to winning your Marin County DUI case, your attorney should visit the scene of the stop, investigate conditions where your field sobriety tests were performed, investigate the circumstances surrounding the administration and results of your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test and negotiate with prosecutors to have the consequences of your Marin County DUI reduced or dismissed. Additionally, your attorney should consider questioning the arresting officer, questioning all witnesses in a Pretrial Motion or at the Department of Motor Vehicles license suspension Hearing.

Because hiring an attorney can lead to a better result in a driving under the influence case, it is critical for a person who has been arrested for DUI to consult with a Marin County attorney within the first few days after having been arrested for DUI. A person convicted of DUI in Marin County, will face a variety of harsh legal consequences including the possibility of jail, large fines, driver's license suspension, probation, and a DUI School. If a person has a prior DUI conviction (or more than one conviction), the consequences of a Marin County driving under the influence case may be enhanced and lead to actual jail time.

The risks are far too great. For that reason, a person arrested for drunk driving needs an experienced Marin County DUI lawyer working on the case.
