Nevada County DUI Defense Lawyer

If you are facing DUI charges, it is important that you proactively and aggressively fight them. With serious consequences on the line following a DUI stop, you need an attorney on your side who has the experience and skill to fight to minimize the harsh impact a conviction could have on your life. The stakes are high, including a possible suspended or revoked license, as well as potential jail time. If you have prior offenses, the possible impact is even greater.

At Leupp & Woodall, we are committed to fighting for clients throughout California, helping them to keep their driving privileges and minimizing the impact on their lives. With more than 50 years' combined experience in law devoted to criminal defense, we have the skill and knowledge to confront the charges and achieve the best possible outcome in each case.

Nevada City Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

Prompt action is important following a DUI arrest. For example, the California Department of Motor Vehicles will automatically suspend your driver's license unless a hearing is requested within ten days of the date of your arrest.

We will immediately take steps to protect your interest, including arranging for a hearing with the DMV to contest its attempt to suspend your license. We will also thoroughly analyze the facts of your case, including the circumstances of the traffic stop, the field sobriety tests administered by the officer, and the breath or blood test procedure that were followed. Where appropriate we will file a motion to challenge the legality of your detention or arrest and seek to have the charges dismissed.

Felony DUI Charges and Third Strikes

We are also able to handle more complex DUI charges, including aggravated DUI charges and DUI with injury or death. We are also able to fight prior offense charges that require the skill and understanding of a veteran criminal defense lawyer to avoid or minimize potentially severe consequences.
