Being arrested for driving under the influence can be frightening. Many California residents who are charged with a DUI offense are normally upstanding, law-abiding citizens. All it takes is a momentary lapse in judgment or unfortunate mistake for a person to find themselves treated as a criminal. If convicted, individuals can face a range of serious consequences, including years or incarceration, that may affect them for the rest of their lives.

By law, if you are arrested for driving under the influence then your driver’s license will automatically be suspended.

Your lawyer can help you plead your case in order to have your license reinstated. This can prevent a tremendous amount of hassle and inconvenience for you and ensure you continue to have access to your driving privileges so that you can get to and from work and around Los Angeles without issue.
