Why Hire a Lawyer with Local Experience?
Our legal team works with clients and courts all over Southern California. The more lawyers deal with specific courts, the more they understand the dynamics of that particular court. They establish relationships with the employees there and get to understand the best way to handle cases. They can even get to know the prosecutors that work in that particular court and what kind of results they can expect from them.
In Ventura County, for example, the DMV reports that zero DUI cases resulted in reckless driving charges in 2010 as opposed to 12% in San Diego for that same period. If you have a case in San Diego, an experienced attorney would know to push for a reduced charge. DUI sentencing is not always fair, so having a lawyer who is knowledgeable about your particular situation is always a good idea.
For example, some courts are more likely to offer plea bargains of reduced sentencing like reckless driving and other courts will never allow this. If an attorney knows that this is possible, they will work to get their clients plea bargains instead of pursing a trial.
This is beneficial to the client in many ways as they are given a realistic picture of their case by an attorney who understands because of experience. They are also most likely to get the best results working with a lawyer who knows a lot about the court you are being charged in.
Our legal team is made up of many attorneys. Each has their own established relationships and strengths. We work as a team to provide superior care to every one of our clients. Having a team of professionals means that we are able to have experience in many courts all through the region.

Immediate action is required in order to save your driver's license and get you the results that you want. If you are driving and are stopped by police and are found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or more, you will be arrested and charged with DUI. A DUI charge can be a different experience depending on the court that you are being charged in. Some courts treat DUI offenses more seriously than others. For example, in 2010 96.8% of all first time DUI offenders in Riverside County were sentenced to at least some jail time. During that same period, 38.2% of all first time offenders in Orange County received jail time. There are a number of reasons for these differences such as number of DUI cases seen in the court or even a bias on the part of the judge or D.A.
We strive to make the entire process as easy for you as we can. That is why we have offices all over the state so you do not have to worry about a long commute to see your California DUI attorney.
