I’ve received my undergraduate degree from UCLA where I was part of the honors program. I then went on to attend Loyola Law School in Los Angeles where I was a mock trial judge. After finishing law school, I joined the Riverside Public Defender’s Office. As a deputy public defender, I counseled clients on their legal rights and appeared with them at their court hearings. I prepared any necessary legal documents and motions and argued them before the judge. I then left the public defender’s office to go on and open up my own practice. I wanted to be able to give each client more time and attention. Having been a public defender now and a private defense attorney for over 10 years, I have gained a lot of training and experience, especially in DUIs.
When facing a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), DWI (Driving While Intoxicated), or any other drunk driving-related offense, you need a competent and assertive attorney by your side. A drunk driving offense can be one of the most intimidating charges one faces. It can impact your life in more ways than one. A DUI conviction can result in jail time, suspension of your driver’s license, increased insurance rates and exorbitant fines and fees. In addition to all these, a drunk driving conviction can also threaten your reputation and career.
An effective DUI defense plan begins right when you’re arrested. We begin your defense strategy by securing a date for the DMV hearing within the first ten days of your arrest. Representing you at this hearing is a crucial first step in your defense. License suspension is automatic unless you preserve your right to a DMV hearing. In order to secure your driving privileges, we subpoena and question the officers involved in the incident and attack their reasons to stop you in the first place. We then proceed to represent your interests at arraignment in criminal court.
Defending a DUI case requires expertise in the law since the law is complicated and constantly changing. I have been practicing DUI law since 2006. My passion lies in defending those who have been accused of a crime, especially DUIs. I understand good people make mistakes or get caught in bad circumstances or are even wrongfully accused at times. I make it my mission to give each client the smartest and best possible defense by closely analyzing the facts of the case.
I have handled countless misdemeanor and felony DUI cases. I have extensive knowledge in DUI investigations and the issues that commonly come up with blood and breath testing for alcohol, prescription medication and drugs.
My team and I diligently work on your behalf to come up with a strong and effective defense strategy to get you the most favorable resolution. We closely analyze the police report to find any loopholes. Finding problems with the government’s case and presenting reasonable defenses on your behalf is our job and it’s what we do best. We talk to witnesses, cross-examine police officers and lab technicians, and offer our own expert witnesses to refute test results. These are only some of the tactics we use to minimize the evidence against you. Depending on what’s necessary, we either fight the case at trial or negotiate a reasonable disposition for you or get your charges reduced. Either way we make sure your rights are protected and you have peace of mind along the way. We fight to earn your trust and protect your rights.
You need someone on your side who will fight hard. Without a lawyer, you have to face a complicated legal process on your own. I have knowledge and familiarity with the criminal justice system since I was a public defender and have been a criminal defense attorney for over 10 years. When you hire me, you can be sure that you have a skilled professional fighting for you. Don’t risk your license or your freedom! Give us a call.
