When the Party Is Really Over
A California driving under the influence (DUI) arrest is no laughing matter. If it results in a conviction, it can devastate a person's finances, diminish employment prospects and damage family relationships. If a motor vehicle accident is involved, the stakes only get higher.
I am Los Angeles DUI defense attorney Edward J. Blum. For more than 15 years, my law firm has worked extensively with motorists accused of driving while intoxicated in the Los Angeles County area. To date, The Law Office of Edward J. Blum has successfully represented hundreds of clients, saving people like you money, embarrassment and jail time.
Why You Need an Experienced Los Angeles DUI Lawyer
If you are arrested for drunk driving, it may be tempting to just pay the fine and let the legal process have its way. Unfortunately, California's court system, its Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and its system of laws come down hard on those who plead guilty.
If you are accused of driving while intoxicated in California, call me immediately, because the sooner I can begin building a defense, the better the likely outcome.
- Deadlines: If you do not respond properly to a DUI ticket in 10 days, your license can be suspended or revoked — even if it is your first offense.
- Procedure: Defending yourself against a DUI charge can be procedurally complicated and technical. It is not a job for a novice attorney, let alone a lay person who is unfamiliar with Los Angeles-area court procedures and California law.
- Penalties: California imposes strict penalties for all convicted DUI offenders, regardless of age, the number of DUI convictions or whether they live in or out of state. A good DUI attorney can help you avoid or limit these penalties to a greater degree than you could do on your own.
