Fight a DUI Charge in San Diego

Aggressive DMV & Criminal Court Representation

There are two aspects to any driving under the influence (DUI) charge in Southern California. The first involves the suspension of one’s license, and these proceedings will be automatically initiated if you are arrested on suspicion of DUI and refuse or fail a test to determine your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The second involves criminal charges for DUI, with penalties such as jail time and fines if you are convicted. You need to act immediately to request a hearing to challenge your license suspension and will require a San Diego DUI defense lawyer’s counsel in criminal court.

Premier Criminal Defense, LLC provides unrelenting, experienced legal representation for both sides of DUI cases in San Diego and across California. We fight for our clients at their hearings with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and in criminal court, working diligently to protect their licenses and their freedom. Both are of extreme importance, and we spare no effort in seeking the best outcome possible. Whether you are facing charges for underage DUI, felony DUI, or a first DUI offense, we are confident in our ability to help.

What do I do if I’m stopped for a DUI in California?

In the event that you’re pulled over for suspicion of a DUI, it’s imperative that you take the necessary precautions to defend your rights. Being pulled over or even placed under arrest is not a conviction, and there is still hope to protect your freedoms. Apart from using common sense, there are several tips to keep in mind when interacting with police when pulled over.

  • Do not answer any potentially incriminating questions
  • Refuse a field sobriety test
  • Refuse the hand-held breathalyzer
  • Take a chemical test at the police station

Developing Winning DUI Defense Strategies

Many clients that approach our firm are unsure of their rights and options in the face of DUI charges. They may assume that they have no chance of avoiding a conviction because they “failed” field sobriety tests and a breath test or blood test. What they do not know is that there are ways a skilled San Diego DUI defense attorney can effectively challenge such tests, or expose evidence or constitutional rights violations that could turn an entire case around.

Our founding attorney, Thomas Slattery, is a former prosecutor. He has 17 years of experience in criminal law and has helped literally thousands of clients. Leading our team with his knowledge and resolve, Mr. Slattery is not afraid to think outside the box when it comes to challenging DUI charges.
