Years of Experience
Years as a Prosecutor
Primary Practice Areas
DUI cases combine factual issues with legal issues with scientific issues and thus require an experienced, skilled attorney to defend against them.
Rather than getting an attorney who has a catchy jingle and will go for a quick settlement. Focus on getting an attorney who will get you what you deserve and take it to court if needed.
If you have 3 prior convictions and are facing certain types of a new felony, the penalties are even higher. You could receive a sentence of life without the possibility of parole, life with parole after serving 10 years, or 25 years in prison, with a 10 years minimum before parole eligibility.
If your afraid one bad night could affect the rest of your life don’t hesitate on hiring an experienced attorney. Unlike other law firms, I meet with all clients and you will not be getting some associate who has just gotten their law degree.
