The San Francisco Bay Area is a beautiful place to visit – and more than 15.4 million people visit the Bay Area each year. Unfortunately, a night out with friends or a day spent in Napa could lead to a DUI arrest. Even worse, California has some of the strictest DUI laws in the country. If you are arrested for DUI in Oakland or anywhere in the Bay Area, you will need an experienced Oakland DUI attorney to help.
Immediately after your arrest, contact an experienced Oakland DUI attorney. Your lawyer can even meet you at the jail and walk you through what you can expect following your arrest. Your license will likely be revoked and this will mean that you will not be able to drive in California or even in your own state. Having a DUI attorney that is experienced in California DUI law during this time is critical. In many cases, you will need a lawyer to fight on your behalf and attend DUI suspension hearings, arraignments, and trials—especially if you cannot attend in person.
Unfortunately, when you are arrested for DUI on vacation, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Before you choose a lawyer to represent you in a DUI case, be certain he or she has the experience you need to handle your case. Not all criminal defense lawyers have the resources or time to handle out-of-town DUI cases. Also, be sure you ask upfront about fees and expenses. Not all criminal defense lawyers charge the same – and it is best to know how much your attorney's services will cost – especially if your case proceeds to trial.
