Westlake Village Dui Lawyers
Getting pulled over for having old registration or failing to use a turning signal may seem expensive, but nothing compares to the long-term consequences of a DUI. California maintains some of the strictest DUI laws within the country, and even a single conviction could change a driver’s life for years on end. Our team of Westlake Village DUI lawyers here at H&M understands just how overwhelming these legal battles can be, and this is why we are devoted to investing an overwhelming amount of time and energy into every single case that we take on so that our clients can protect their finances, their time, and their record.
The Immediate Consequences of a DUI
While there are countless reasons to never get behind the wheel of a vehicle while under the influence, many drives do not know exactly how far-reaching the consequences can be. This begins with the initial arrest, a night behind bars, and an impounding of the vehicle that will immediately cost upwards of a few hundred dollars out of one’s pocket. The license will also be suspended until the hearing which will disrupt the driver’s work and social life. Drivers without one of our experienced legal representatives will then have to navigate through this complicated process alone, unsure of where to even begin when it comes to formalizing a defense.
The Importance of Professional Legal Assistance
There are countless factors that take place immediately after a DUI, and many drivers do not realize just how important some of the smallest pieces of information can be. In addition to helping our clients ensure paperwork is filed, requesting information from the arrest, and potentially even getting a restricted license for the time being, we will relentlessly pursue every facet of the case until we have collected the information that we need in order to go into the hearing as prepared as possible. This type of information will include the client’s driving history, chemical BAC results, and information on the arresting officer(s).
Creating a Winning Strategy
Many drivers may feel as if their own case is hopeless, but there are countless dynamics taking place under the surface that will affect the final outcome. Some do not realize their own personal rights during these cases, and it is this kind of knowledge that helps us reduce or completely remove charges in many cases. Those without this type of representation could be looking at long-term expenses of $10,000 or more for first-time offenders in addition to traffic school, a suspended license, and the potential for time in jail.
Relying on Experience
When it comes to a DUI, there is quite a big risk for drivers that are convicted, and this is what makes an experienced legal team so invaluable. Here at H&M, we have years of experience for DUI charges levels at underage drivers, first-time offenders, and repeat offenders. We understand exactly what must take place and the order it must take place in, and this takes some of the pressure off of our clients. If you or someone you know has recently been arrested and charged with a DUI, our team is ready to take an uncompromising stand on your behalf.
