“Absolutely the best DUI LAWYER in all of California...Though it took some serious convincing, And a lot of hard work Damian was able to get Anthony's second time DUI criminal case reduced to an exhibition of speed - with reduced fines, no alcohol class, and no jail...his expertise in this field is definitely one of a kind and it's very hard to come across an honest, dedicated attorney to every single case.”

DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
Years of Experience
We have been fighting the most sophisticated DUI cases in Los Angeles for years. From misdemeanors to felony DUI with injury, we have fought them all across California. A DUI conviction can carry harsh penalties but it can further have life altering immigration, employment, and occupational license consequences as well. Call us, we can help.
FAILURE TO APPEAR BENCH WARRANTS
Let us be the buffer between you and the court system. Many people are too scared to return to court once they have failed to appear on their case for fear they will taken to jail when they return. We have an extensive history of success in getting our clients back on track without jail when we go to court on their behalf.
Getting pulled over for a suspended license is a nasty surprise: car impounded, fines, points and criminal charges. Many people don’t even know their license is suspended or why. That’s because there is a complicated relationship between the DMV and the traffic and criminal court systems. Call us, we understand how it all works.
Protect Your Record
Did you know paying your traffic ticket off without going to court is the same as pleading guilty? Convictions and points against your driving record are what insurance companies use to increase your premiums for several years. We have fought every type of traffic case there is in Southern California. Call us because every ticket is worth fighting in court.
Get What You Deserve
Being the victim of an auto accident is one of the most overwhelming things you can experience. Insurance companies are looking to settle cases quickly for the cheapest cost to their bottom line. So you need to fight to get the compensation you need and deserve. For compassionate and aggressive representation, call us for a free consultation.
Move On With Your Life
A criminal conviction can stand in the way of new career opportunities, school applications, and even traveling to other countries. It doesn’t have to be this way. We have helped thousands of clients sanitize their record and get their convictions dismissed to achieve their dreams. Call us and let us help you move on with your life.
Protect Your License
For every DUI arrest in California there is a separate DMV hearing where you can challenge the suspension of your driver’s license provided you claim it within 10 days of your arrest. We understand how these hearings work and which strategies are the most effective to employ in order to have the best chance at success.
