After an arrest for driving under the influence, you must act quickly to protect yourself. Specifically, we only have 10 days after a DUI arrest to notify the DMV that you will be fighting the suspension of your drivers license. If you fail to obtain the counsel of an experienced attorney, you place your rights and your future at risk.
Since 1980, Casciola & Galambos, LLP has represented persons accused of DUI and other criminal charges in San Luis Obispo County. We understand the many issues that an arrest raises, and how to deal with them using the law and the facts. We will work to provide strong representation to minimize the consequences of your arrest.
Call us at 1.800.892.3489 or 1.805.541.4135 for a free consultation. We can evaluate your situation, explain your legal options, and discuss what we can do to protect your rights and your freedom.
The Two Sides of a DUI Arrest
A drunk driving arrest triggers two parallel legal actions — a criminal proceeding that determines your guilt or innocence of the charge, and a DMV administrative proceeding that could result in the loss of your driver’s license. A person facing a DUI charge needs effective representation in both proceedings to fully protect their rights.
Casciola & Galambos, LLP has successfully represented thousands of clients in both legal proceedings. In the administrative hearing, we fight to save your driver’s license, and use the hearing to strengthen your defense on the criminal side.
Success Is Possible
Contrary to what you may have heard, a successful defense of a DUI charge is possible, even if the results of the blood alcohol test exceeded .08 percent. The police may not have had a valid reason to stop your vehicle. The arresting officer may not have followed proper procedures. The breath test may not have been conducted properly. There may be biological or physical reasons for an inaccurate reading of your breath or blood test.
Minimizing the Consequences You Face
In some cases, the State’s evidence is strong. It may make sense in these circumstances to obtain the best plea offer possible, so that you can put the event behind you and move forward in your life. The attorneys at Casciola & Galambos, LLP have had great success obtaining alternative sentencing outcomes for our clients.
