The penalties for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) are harsh, particularly if you leave yourself to the mercy of the court. There are many potential punishments for a DUI charge, any one of which could have a serious impact on your lifestyle.
If you have been charged with a DUI, your first move should be to call the Law Offices of Jeffery K. Rubenstein for a free consultation – (310) 477-2100.
DUI Client Testimonial:
We never expect to get in trouble, but things can change very fast and get out of control. Recently I got arrested for a DUI. The officer upon arresting me told me that I should not even bother getting an attorney. He told me that all a lawyer will do is charge you a lot of money and that there is no way to win. I didn’t listen to him and you should not think that way either. From the moment I spoke with Mr. Rubenstein he made me feel comfortable. He listened, was concerned, asked smart questions and gave me hope. As it turned out the DUI got reduced to a Dry Reckless, so much for what the officer said. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and I highly recommend him if you find that trouble has found you.
There Is Hope
Many times, police won’t properly follow protocol when booking someone for a DUI. This isn’t just a mistake in paperwork — it means that your rights have been violated. If you were not treated fairly in the process, we can move to get your case thrown out of court so that you don’t face any punishments.
Even if your charging officer did everything by the book, it’s a great help to have an aggressive lawyer by your side when it comes to charging or sentencing. It is often up to the discretion of the court how severe your punishment is. Having great lawyers like Jeff Rubenstein and his firm’s attorneys on your side can sometimes get your name cleared, but even if the charges stick, we can fight so that the punishment has a lesser impact on your life.
