First Time Option

If the DUI arrest and charges you or a loved one faces are your first experience with the criminal court system, you might be asking yourself, “Are there special options for people who have never had any run-ins with the law?”

Our job as experienced DUI defense attorneys is to minimize if not altogether eliminate the consequences you face following an arrest on suspicion of DUI. We know that even having to be booked in jail and appear before a judge in court can be nerve-wracking for someone who’s never had to go through it before — to say nothing of the actual criminal consequences that can result from a conviction. We have answers to your questions about your legal options — and more importantly, we’re ready to help you fight your DUI charges in California.

In addition to our main offices in Irvine and Riverside, we have a network of offices across Southern California to help you no matter where you are. Call 888.998.6938 now for a free consultation.

  • First, we’ll look for any way to get your charges dropped entirely. The best way to keep your record clean is to keep the government from having the chance to convict you on criminal charges in the first place. Circumstances from faulty sobriety tests to police misconduct can doom a DUI case, even if the government’s evidence looks to be strong at the outset. Keeping our clients out of the criminal court system is always our highest priority.
  • Next, we’ll determine if there’s any way to get your charges reduced. In most cases, a charge of reckless driving is going to cause less long-term damage than a DUI charge. If it is possible to get a DUI charge reduced to something more minor, we’ll do everything possible to make it happen.
  • If a criminal conviction is unavoidable, we’ll still work to minimize the consequences you face. Even a first-time DUI conviction can result in up to six months in jail, $1,000-plus in fines and, in some cases, required installation of an ignition interlock device. We advocate for the most lenient sentences in every case we handle. Whenever our clients are eligible for a restricted license so they can get to and from work or school, we help them through the administrative side of the process as well.
  • If you’re looking to move beyond a mistake from your past, we can help. Even if you’ve served your time and paid your fines, the effects of a criminal record can linger for years after a conviction. If you’re a one-time DUI offender who wants to make a clean break with the past, we can help you explore your options for expungements in California.
