Leading San Diego DUI Defense Attorney


California has some of the toughest driving under the influence laws in the country. A DUI conviction could subject you to jail or prison confinement, heavy fines, suspension or revocation of your driving privileges for anywhere from six months to up to 10 years, and installation of an ignition interlock device on any vehicle you operate. Imagine trying to get to work, go to school or go about your daily routine without the ability to drive a car. A DUI conviction can irreparably harm your personal and professional life by taking away your driver’s license and saddling you with a criminal record.

When the consequences are so high, you want an attorney who can aggressively fight on your behalf.
