Napa DUI Defense Law Firm
Our Napa DUI Attorneys are dedicated to helping those arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Our Napa DUI Lawyers handle all aspects of drunk-driving defense matters throughout Napa and Sonoma Counties.
If you have been charged with a DUI, then you are facing a host of legal problems. Known for its zealous prosecution of drunk-driving cases, the Napa County District Attorney's office is recognized for filing DUI charges even when one's blood-alcohol test results have fallen below California's .08% per se limit. All is not lost. As experienced Napa criminal defense attorneys, we have been able to successfully defend against such charges.
When you are arrested for drunk driving, you can be fined, have your license suspended or revoked, and possibly even imprisoned. Both civil and criminal DUI penalties can be quite severe and often include:
- Hefty Fines
- Community Service
- Mandatory rehabilitation classes
- Ignition Interlock devices
- Increased insurance rates
- Electronic monitoring
- Jail time

California DUI Laws
Following an arrest for driving-under-the-influence in California generally results in one being charged with violating California Vehicle Code section 23152(a) (driving under the influence) and possibly violation of section 23152(b) (driving with a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08 or higher). In addition, if you have a BAC level of .08% or greater or refuse to submit to testing, the arresting police officer will confiscate your license (unless you are an out-of-state license holder). The officer will provide you with a pink sheet that serves as a formal notice of potential license suspension. This notice serves only as a temporary driving license. You have only ten days in which to request a hearing with the Department of Vehicles; otherwise your driving privileges will be suspended automatically within 30 days. Additionally, if you injured someone while driving drunk, you may also be charged with a felony.
Hiring an experienced Napa DUI lawyer can help lessen the impact a drunk-driving charge can have on your life. A knowledgeable Napa criminal defense attorney can often get charges reduced, evidence thrown out, and possibly even the dismissal of the charge altogether.
