DUI Overview

At the law offices of the Fresno DUI attorney, we understand that getting arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a scary thing. If you or your loved one has been arrested for DUI in the Fresno area, please do not panic. By seeking out legal advice, you are already ahead of the curve.

Most DUIs occur as a result of drunk driving, but you can be charged with DUI for being under the influence of drugs and medicines as well. The state of California treats DUI offenses very seriously. If you are facing such a charge one of our Fresno DUI attorneys can help.

There are two justice processes that will spring from a DUI arrest---a court proceeding and a DMV proceeding. While you can represent yourself in either of these proceedings, it is completely inadvisable for a number of reasons.

First, a Fresno based DUI attorney will have ample experience dealing with the Fresno courts as well as the Fresno DMV. It is not uncommon for a good attorney to get a DUI case dismissed before it even goes to trial using legal methods unfamiliar to the public. Even if your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level was above the legal limit, we can still help you and possibly get your case dismissed.

Legally, you have 10 calendar days from the date of your DUI arrest to request a hearing with the DMV. If you do not request this hearing, your license will be automatically suspended. By appointing a skilled Fresno DUI lawyer, you can avoid having your license taken away and many other consequences that result from a DUI arrest such as jail time, heavy fines, and a criminal record.
