Glendale DUI Lawyer
600 East Broadway
Glendale, CA 91206
Over the past twenty-five years, I have handled thousands of driving under the influence (DUI) cases and have had much success in the Glendale courthouse.
Glendale is part of the Los Angeles court system and, like most of the courts in Los Angeles County, has its way of dispensing justice when it comes to a DUI case.
In my opinion, your best strategy is to hire an attorney who has been down the road you are about to travel and had success. There are no “cookie-cutter” solutions when it comes to DUI cases.
They spin on their facts, and there are several factors that the prosecutor and judge will evaluate when deciding what their position will be on any given case.
Many of these factors can sit in a grey area and need to be explained to the powers that be by a seasoned, savvy DUI defense attorney who is on your side and can fight for your rights!
Drunk Driving Factors
Some of the factors that the prosecutor and judge will consider in making their minds up are – your blood alcohol level (the higher it is, the harsher it will be), how you were driving at the time of your arrest (if you were going fast or driving recklessly then they will harshly punish you), both your criminal and driving record and precisely what happened in your case.
If someone was injured during your DUI arrest, then this will be something they consider in how they deal with you. If, on the other hand, you we simply arrested for a minor traffic offense and were cooperative with the police, then you stand the best chance of coming out on the other end with the least amount of damage possible.
Much of the DUI defense is damage control and finding problems with the prosecutor's case.

One of the most significant factors that the police, prosecutors, and judges are looking at in a DUI case is how dangerous you were to the community during your DUI arrest.
They see it as part of their job to protect the public and punish those who break the law and jeopardize public safety.
If it can be successfully argued that you were not a danger to the public at large during your DUI arrest, then many of the consequences associated with DUI cases in Los Angeles can be avoided.
Once again, each case spins on its' facts, and I encourage you to come in to meet with us so we can evaluate your case and begin the process of resolving it and putting the court system behind you!
A DUI conviction in California can result in expensive fines, jail time, and a suspended driver's license. You could also be ordered to perform community service and work with convicts to clean up the highways. Any drunk driving charges need to be addressed immediately by an experienced DUI attorney because you only have ten days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing.
If you do not schedule a hearing, your California driver's license will be automatically suspended. In California, only the Department of Motor Vehicles has the legal right to suspend or revoke your driver's license. This DMV hearing is an integral part of your DUI arrest, and a skilled attorney must handle it.
