A Fresno DUI Attorney Can Help if You Are Charged with Drinking and Driving

Apr 13, 2016

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a serious charge. If there are no injuries, a first-time conviction for DUI in California can lead to thousands of dollars in fines and costs, plus a short jail sentence, followed by probation. Successive convictions carry steeper penalties and longer jail sentences, while convictions related to an accident that causes injuries can lead to years in prison.


If you have been charged with a DUI in the Central Valley area, you need a DUI attorney who can protect your rights. Your attorney can review the evidence in the case and help to determine whether you should plead guilty or not guilty. The rules regarding sobriety tests are complex; you need an attorney who can analyze the case and tell you how to move forward. Your attorney can also watch over the procedures used by the police and the courts to make sure that they treat you fairly.


If you are found guilty of DUI, your attorney can work with you to minimize penalties. Within limits, the court has the right to impose lighter or harsher penalties according to its impression of the defendant and the seriousness of the crime. Your attorney can work with you to present the court with reasons to impose the lightest appropriate penalties in your case.


Driving Under the Influence is a serious charge. It can generate penalties which include large fines, loss of your driver's license, and jail time. If you have been charged with a DUI, please contact us.
