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. Contact the firm today to schedule
your free initial consultation!
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.
