When The Stakes Are High, Turn To Us
Facing charges for driving under the influence (DUI) in Southern California is difficult under any circumstances. However, the majority of the clients who hire our firm are concerned not just with consequences from the court, but with consequences impacting other areas of their lives. This could include, but is certainly not limited, to clients maintaining professional licenses, those with military consequences, security clearances, employment consequences and immigration consequences. If those or any other potentially devastating consequences apply to you, you’re going to need a lawyer who understands not only what is at stake for you, but also knows how to structure your case to minimize those consequences.
At The Law Offices of G. Cole Casey, we practice 100% in DUI defense, and we focus this practice on the most difficult cases. Our results speak for themselves, which is why most of our cases come from referrals from prior clients, other attorneys and court personnel, including judges, bailiffs and court reporters, all who have witnessed firsthand our firm’s ability to effectively handle complicated cases.
Situations That Can Enhance Your Punishment
Certain circumstances will automatically increase your penalties or even raise your charges to a felony level. Those include:
- Having a BAC of .15% or higher
- Driving under the influence at an excessive speed
- Driving under the influence with a child in the car
- Driving under the influence in a construction zone
- Driving under the influence in an accident injuring or killing another person
- Having prior DUI convictions
- Being on probation for a prior DUI
In addition, if you reach a fourth DUI conviction within 10 years, your charge will be bumped to a felony. Your prior record is a key component to your penalties, which is why defending yourself against a DUI charge is critical.
