If you are arrested for drunk driving in California, you face suspension of your drivers license even before the District Attorney files criminal charges against you, and you must request a Department of Motor Vehicles hearing within ten days to get it back. It is essential to seek immediate legal counsel from an attorney. Adam has the experience and the skills necessary to effectively represent you against criminal drunk driving charges and at the DMV administrative hearing.

Prior drunk driving offenses within the last 10 years enhance the punishment for a new offense. A 4th DUI offense is a felony, carrying mandatory jail time and possibly state prison time. An effective DUI defense questions every step of the arrest, including whether the arresting officer had probable cause for the stop, whether the field sobriety test was correctly performed and supported the officers conclusion, whether the breath test was correctly administered and the equipment properly maintained and inspected, and whether the chemical test was lawfully performed and accurate.

Adam will thoroughly evaluate your case and advise you as to your legal options and the best course of action to follow. Adam will schedule the DMV hearing, help you prepare for it, and appear with you. Adam will attend your initial appearance at arraignment, file suppression motions, and negotiate with the prosecution regarding pleas. If the case goes to trial, Adam will aggressively defend your rights in court.
