Defense Against DUI Charges
With drunk driving charges, there is always more than one thing at stake. Possible criminal penalties are one thing. The loss of your driver’s license in an administrative proceeding is another.
Some DUI cases involve yet another important consideration. Federal immigration authorities could categorize certain drunk driving offenses as crimes of “moral turpitude,” leading to deportation proceedings.

What Are the Relevant Facts in Your DUI Case?
A first-time arrest at just over the limit is not the same as multiple convictions over a period of time.
Most DUI offenses are misdemeanors. But in California, if you are arrested for DUI and have three or more prior drunk driving convictions on your record, you can be charged with felony DUI.
There are also certain circumstances other than those of repeat offenses in which you could face felony DUI charges. If you committed a traffic violation, such as speeding or running a red light, and that infraction injured a third party, you might be charged with felony DUI.
Our firm not only provides a skilled DUI defense attorney. We know how to handle these cases with an eye toward protecting the immigration status of our noncitizen clients wherever possible.
