First-Time DUI Charges

A Riverside DUI Attorney can Fight for You

Our state laws prohibit an individual from driving a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol ( DUI). While the legal blood alcohol (BAC) limit is .08%, if under 21, the limit is .01% and for commercial drivers driving a commercial vehicle it is .04%. These are very stringent limits and it is easy for someone to make a mistake. Have you or a loved one been accused of a first time DUI? If so, please contact an experienced Riverside DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Thomas Wallin & Scott Henry. You can put your situation in the hands of their legal team and rest easy knowing that they will carefully evaluate the evidence, recommend a sound course of action and work hard to protect your rights.

The firm is fortunate to have as their lead attorney a former Riverside County Public Defender with a proven track record of DUI-client representation. Mr. Wallin's case results, both as a Public Defender and as a private defense attorney are impressive and the respect that he has garnered from judges, district attorneys, police officers, expert witnesses and other private defense attorneys is remarkable.

Facing a first time DUI charge in Riverside?

A first time DUI should never be taken lightly. Although a first offense is usually charged as a misdemeanor, it may be charged as a felony DUI if there was an accident and someone was injured- an event that will change your life forever. There are two types of proceedings that you will go through: the criminal court process and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) process. At the criminal sentencing, you may be fined, serve jail time, and be penalized in other ways. In the DMV proceeding, you have only 10 days to request an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing to attempt to save you from a driver's license suspension. With the firm's 15 years of experience and 100% focus on DUI defense, they are skilled at challenging weak or flawed aspects of the prosecution's case to get for their clients the best possible resolution to their first time DUI cases, including dismissals and charge reductions.
