If you or someone you care about has been arrested for a DWI or DUI in California, the penalties could be severe. Having representation that is committed to protecting your interests could be key to the success attainable for your case, and time is of the essence – requesting a Department of Motor Vehicles administrative hearing within ten days of your arrest is vital.
Over 20,000 people are arrested annually for DUI in California. Thousands of them will go to court without legal representation even though DUIs carry serious consequences – sometimes even for first offenders. Substantial fines, the loss of your driver’s license, and other penalties could apply to your case if you are convicted.
Possible penalties include:
- Installation of an interlock ignition system
- Completion of a Level I DUI educational course
- Driver’s license suspension
- 3 year’s formal or informal probation
- Up to $3500 in fines, fees, and assessments
- Two or more days in jail, with a maximum sentence of six months

If you have been accused of a traffic violation that is classified as a misdemeanor or felony, it’s important to speak with an attorney to be sure that you understand the potential consequences, and what your rights are.
Serious traffic violations could include, but are not limited to:
- “Hit and Run”
- Street Racing/Exhibition of Speed
- Driving without a license or with a suspended license
- Failure to stop for a peace officer
- Reckless driving
- Speeding over 100 mph
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Vehicular homicide
The enforcement of safe driving is important, and many traffic offenses are considered minor, involving only the payment of a fine. If you have been charged with a violation concerning harm to a person or property, however, it is important that you speak with an experienced attorney.
It could be possible to avoid fines or points on your license, and clean up your driving record, with the proper representation.
