It is difficult to negotiate a deal with prosecutors because the DUI laws have mandatory conditions of probation that are difficult to have deferred or stricken. But do not plead guilty or accept a plea bargain without consulting an attorney.
A good DUI defense lawyer will give you a clear, honest and practical evaluation of your case and what you can expect. If your case falls outside the guidelines rendering you eligible for probation, a knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer will be able to develop a defense strategy to minimize the negative consequences.
If you are facing drunk driving charges in San Diego, Temecula, Murrieta or elsewhere in Southern California, contact me, defense attorney Keith H. Rutman, for aggressive representation on your DUI charges.
Experienced DUI Defense Lawyer
I have been defending people facing DUI/DWI, underage drinking and other alcohol-related charges in San Diego County since 1989. In that time, I have developed a reputation as an honest and hardworking criminal defense lawyer who uses every means at my disposal to get results for my clients, no matter what the charges:
- First, second or third misdemeanor DUI arrests
- Felony drunk driving charges
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Reckless driving offenses
