Board-Certified San Francisco Criminal Law Specialist

California DWI- DUI lawyer. Fighting Drunk Driving Charges with the Help of a DUI Attorney in San Francisco - Marin - Contra Costa - Alameda - Santa Clara - San Mateo Counties

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Charges

If you have been charged with DUI, you need to act quickly to save your license. As a California board-certified criminal law specialist, Attorney Christoper F. Morales has handled thousands of these cases. DUI cases are complicated because you are fighting your case in criminal court AND at the DMV.

Sentencing for a DUI conviction varies, depending on your blood alcohol level and whether it was your first DUI offense or a repeat offense. For a first offense in California, sentences may include:

  • 3-5 years of probation
  • a fine of $1,000 to $2,000
  • mandatory enrollment in an alcohol treatment program
  • jail time
  • suspension of your drivers license

A DUI conviction will also cause your car insurance rates to skyrocket, and can hurt your chances of future employment. With each additional DUI offense, the penalties become much more severe.

Hiring a lawyer like Mr. Morales, who has vast experience with DUI defenses, makes a huge difference in the outcome of your case. A knowledgeable DUI lawyer like Mr. Morales can examine the evidence in your case, build a solid defense and keep you out of jail.
