In California drunk driving cases, our goals are generally twofold: first, to protect you from the consequences of a DUI conviction; and next, to protect you from the risk of a driver’s license suspension. To learn how our experience can help you achieve both objectives, contact a DUI defense lawyer at The Worthington Law Centre in Salinas or San Francisco.
Tom Worthington has been certified since 1977 as a specialist in criminal law by the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization. His long experience with the investigation and defense of serious criminal charges can help protect you in a California DUI case.
Our law firm represents clients who face such charges as the following:
We first seek dismissal of the criminal charges by attacking the initial traffic stop, the officer’s probable cause to make the DUI arrest, the circumstances of the blood or breath test or the equipment used to get the results. In some cases, we can make an effective challenge to the evidence of intoxication through forensic toxicology experts.
If a plea agreement is necessary, we work closely with our clients to make sure that they are in full compliance with all court and DMV orders ensuring no further court proceedings or license consequences are instituted.
Meanwhile, our understanding of the driver’s license suspension process can protect your right to drive while your DUI case is pending. We continue to work on all aspects of the case in such a way as to minimize both punishment and collateral consequences on a driver’s license suspension.
DUI defense can be complicated, and our lawyers can explain your rights, risks, and most promising strategies in terms that you can understand.
