DUI

Zonder Law Group provides the confidence you need to face your charges head-on, so you do not have to suffer the anxiety of the unknown, while we prepare your case. As accomplished DUI lawyers, we provide straightforward legal solutions, so you know exactly where your case stands at all times while we work tirelessly to mitigate the charges against you, so you can move forward with your life and put the stress behind you.

If you have been arrested on drunk driving charges, the anxiety of the charges will reveal themselves quickly, causing dizzying stress that is hard to overcome until you contact a DUI attorney and have answers. While our law firm never condones driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, we understand that it does happen and when our clients are arrested as a result, we must ensure their rights are protected and that they receive the best criminal defense available for their unique case.

California laws take a strong stance against driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, and marijuana. Even a first offense can result in detrimental consequences. At Zonder Law Group, we have close knowledge of the laws, your rights, and DUI penalties, and we employ our experience for the benefit of each client who turns to us for help when faced with drunk driving charges in Los Angeles, Ventura, or Santa Barbara Counties.

The penalties for a drunk driving charge depend on the details of your individual case, your age, the number of previous convictions on your record and other factors.

Some of the potential penalties include:

  • Fines
  • Administrative license suspension
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Community service
  • Alcohol education classes
  • Probation
  • Jail time

Administrative and criminal penalties are not the only ways a DUI can affect you. For some professionals, a DUI can affect the standing of your professional license. College students may find a DUI impacts their ability to retain scholarships, enter educational programs and continue with extracurricular activities.

From your personal reputation to your personal freedom, we are committed to protecting your future and fighting to minimize the impact that this type of criminal charge can have on your life.

The first step in countering each of our client’s unique DUI charges is to review the arrest and the evidence against you. At Zonder Law Group we will:

  • Review the probable cause the led to our client being pulled over
  • Assess the Constitutionality of the arrest, rights, and due process
  • Analyze the procedures used to determine intoxication, including field sobriety tests, breathalyzers, and the officer’s ability to conduct both properly

A DUI can negatively impact your life in ways that might surprise you. From the expensive fines and the threat of jail to the loss of your professional license or educational opportunities, you know it is important to protect yourself against the consequences of drunk driving. It is possible to fight back, and we know-how. Whether it is your first offense, or you have previous convictions on your record, the Zonder Law Group can help.
