DUI Attorney in San Diego

If You’ve Been Charged with Drunk Driving in San Diego, Here are the 5 Vital Things to Take Into Consideration When Looking to Protect Your Future:

1. You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to schedule your DMV hearing. If you haven’t done this already, we can handle this for you.

2. If convicted of a DUI, you could lose your drivers license, end up in jail, pay substantial fines and other court-ordered consequences, and your auto insurance rates will certainly go up.

3. When charged with a DUI in San Diego, you don’t have to be guilty. There are always legal methods to mitigate the consequences or get your charges dropped altogether. Whether it be a technicality in the way the officer handled the stop or a negotiation tactic used in court, a seasoned DUI attorney can help you.

4. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for a public defender. If you want to show the judge & the court that you are serious about your defense and you want to have an entire law firm’s resources dedicated to your case, we recommend that you hire private attorney to represent you.

5. We strongly believe that the costs of being convicted of a DUI far outweigh the price of having an experienced DUI attorney represent you. We always work with our clients to setup payment plans that work for them, and if you are our client, we will do everything we can to get you the best result possible.

I found myself facing criminal charges after my DUI. It was the single most costly mistake that I could have made. My marriage, career, and freedom were in jeopardy. I retained Erik Friis on the matter and after our initial consultation I was very relieved to have his experience on my side. He represented me in a courteous and professional manner. I was informed of my rights and responsibilities every step of the way. He even offered me a payment plan. I was able to breathe easy thanks to Erik Friis. I would recommend him to anyone facing a DUI charge."
