Criminal Defense for DUI Charges

Santa Clarita DUI Attorneys with Decades of Experience

The offense of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) has criminal consequences. Individuals who are arrested for alleged DUI offenses can end up being charged with misdemeanor or felony DUI, depending on the circumstances of the case. This means that you will not only have to go to your DMV hearing to fight your driver's license suspension, but you will also have to appear in criminal court and argue your case before a judge. If you are found guilty, you will end up with a conviction that can result in serious penalties, such as jail or prison time, probation, fines and fees, the requirement to have an ignition interlock device installed, driver's license suspension, and more.

The DUI Defense Process

After you are arrested for DUI, you will need to show up in court and either plead guilty, not guilty, or no contest. If you decide to challenge your criminal charges, you will need to gather strong evidence to support your argument that you are undeserving of a conviction.

There are many cases in which the defendant has a strong case for his or her defense and doesn't even realize it. For example, there may be crucial flaws with the DUI evidence (such as the blood or breath test results), or perhaps unacceptable violations of the defendant's rights occurred. In these cases, the defense team has much more leverage for getting the case dismissed or the charges reduced.

At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we can fully investigate the facts related to your arrest and charges. We'll use our extensive knowledge in our legal field to determine how your defense can be strengthened. We may be able to help you receive a "not guilty" verdict, a case dismissal, a favorable plea bargain, or some other successful case result.
