Also Respected As San Diego DUI/DWI Defense Attorneys

One of the criminal areas we are known for in San Diego is in defending those charged with drunk driving or driving while under the influence of drugs. We have gotten our clients superb results in this area of charges.

It is not uncommon for drivers to seek professional DUI lawyers when they are charged with DUI by enforcement officers anytime across San Diego County.

Driving under the Influence or DUI is a serious offense in the eyes of the law in the state of California. The state laws on DUI are extremely severe and encompassing with a strict enforcement to protect all road users.

It is a known fact that California is the king when it comes to DUI related cases in the country. According to, in 2011, three of the top five cities with the most drunk driver offenders are in California cities of San Diego,Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

The article also pointed out that San Diego ranked number one for  driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs offenses in 2011. It is also a well known fact that the cities that rank at the top for driving under the influence are not necessarily the cities with the most alcoholics. In most cases, it is because in those cities the police are more on the lookout for DUI behaviors more than in other cities.

Most defendants are not well versed with the state drink and driving laws to be easily intimidated by the charge imposed on them. However, instead of being confused and traumatized over the situation, they can engage a professional legal representation that is able to guide them through the complicated arena of dwi laws and penalties in California.

Be Properly Represented By Our Top Driving While Under The Influence Experts

We are well established in the legal arena with over 40 years of experience in San Diego DUI cases where our highly qualified and trained lawyers are meticulous and skilled in investigation and legal representation approaches to cause a favorable outcome for our drunk driving charged clients.

We are also familiar with the process and procedures of court hearing, bail bonds and mandatory DMV hearings. As a market reputed legal representative in driving while under the influence with a decade of experience and thousands of such cases in the state, we are confident of providing the best of advice and services to our DUI charged clients for a proper representation in court or DMV hearing.

Drinking & Driving Law Violations

Adrinking  charge in California can refer to:

  • driving while under the influence of alcohol or/and drugs (DUI)
  • driving while being intoxicated by alcohol or drugs (DWI)
  • operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (OUI)

We would be the best choice of firms that protect the defendant’s rights to ensure a proper execution of the laws without bias or prejudice. We have vigilant legal experts who stand up to the occasion for a favorable outcome that offers a second chance to DUI charged defendants regardless of their age and background.

The point is that you could have been one of the victims that got arrested or charged for driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence because the police are insistent on arresting and ticketing as many people with supposedly drunk driving behavior as possible even if those people are not drunk as claimed.
