If you, a loved one, or a friend has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) also known as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), it can be agreed that they are not usually who we think of when we think of a “criminal.” However, a DUI is in fact a serious charge that often involves the suspension of the person’s license, a large fine, probation, a criminal record and even jail time. In California, an estimated 200,000 DUI arrests take place each year.
Our Santa Rosa DUI Attorneys know that your typical first-time DUI arrestee is not a “criminal” at all, yet the criminal justice process treats them like any other person charged with a serious crime. This can be an extremely frightening, stressful and disconcerting experience. Wilber Law Offices ensures you are treated with dignity, respect, compassion, and candidness while assisting you through the confusing legal system. In fact, unless your DUI is charged as a felony, we can usually ensure you never have to step foot in the courtroom and you are free to carry on with your day-to-day routines.
A typical DUI involves navigating not only the court system, but also the potential consequences of the Department of Motor Vehicles. An experienced Santa Rosa DUI lawyer is necessary to make sure you handle both systems in a way that minimizes your consequences to the greatest extent possible. From the fines, the cost of the DUI education classes, the potential loss of your driving privilege, and the increase in insurance premiums, it is important you call Wilber Law Offices as soon as possible after your arrest to ensure all of your rights are protected and all possible avenues of defense are traveled.
