Choose an Experienced DUI Defense Attorney

If you have previous DUI convictions and you are now facing an additional DUI charge, you may have to endure serious penalties enforced by the criminal justice system. California comes down extremely hard on those convicted of DUIs. This is even more severe for those who are considered to be multiple DUI offenders. In addition, the court often assumes you are guilty because of your prior record.
