DUI: Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
Most people do not realize the severity of a DUI conviction in the State of California. If you are convicted of driving under the influence, you could face:
Thousands of Dollars in Fines
Loss of your drivers license
Incarceration in either county jail or state prison
If you are arrested for driving under the influence, contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately. You only have 10 days from the date of arrest, including weekends and holidays, to schedule your DMV hearing. If you fail to schedule your hearing, you risk having your license suspended.
