DUI Defense Lawyer in Walnut Creek
Protect Your Rights & Driving Privileges
A DUI can happen to anyone at the worst possible time. It seems so normal for many people to have a couple beers and then hop in their car and drive. Before you know it there is a police officer pulling you over, asking you to do Field Sobriety Tests, and arresting you for DUI. It happens in the blink of an eye and can be one of the scariest times in your life. At Thomas Daly Law, A Professional Corporation, we understand the stakes in these cases for our clients and do everything we can to minimize the impact of these charges.
If you've been charged with DUI, time is of the essence. Call our firm at (925) 208-4801 today to start exploring your options.
Consequences of a DUI Conviction
The consequences of a first-time DUI conviction can be serious and in some instances could even include jail time. Most first time DUI sentences generally include a period of informal probation, a short jail sentence which is satisfied with a work furlough program, DUI educational classes, fines and fees, and possibly the required installation of an ignition interlock device.
"What Happens to Me Now?"
If you are arrested for a DUI you will probably be released without posting bail. If there are other circumstances which don’t allow for your release then you will either be able to post bail or you will be taken to court for your arraignment.
At Thomas Daly Law, A Professional Corporation we routinely assist clients who are being held in jail. If you have a family member or friend in jail who wants assistance quickly call our firm for help. Attorney Daly will instantly get to work to have your family member or friend bailed out, if possible.
If you’re out of jail, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Thomas Daly can help you through the DMV and court processes for an affordable rate.
