How To Select a DUI Lawyer

From the moment you are pulled over and charged with DUI, you face challenging decisions. Should you submit to the breath test? Do you admit to drinking? Do you say anything to the police or prosecutor? The most important decision you face is which lawyer to you hire to represent you.

When It Comes to DUI Charges, It Is All About Experience

The phone book and Internet are filled with hundreds of attorneys and law firms who practice in the area of DUI defense. When deciding which attorney is right for you, consider these factors:

  • Do the lawyers have the right experience? At The Law Offices of Michael L. Davidson, in San Mateo, California, our attorneys have more than 40 years of DUI defense experience, negotiating the best possible outcome with a focus on helping our clients avoid a conviction, and successful trial experience, securing acquittals in jury trials.
  • Do the lawyers listen to your concerns? Every client has special circumstances and no two DUI arrests are ever the same. We start your defense by listening to your needs and concerns. When we can put a human face to your circumstances, we are able to work with the prosecutor and are able to prepare a solid, effective defense.
  • Does the lawyer know the local court system? We serve clients in courts throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California, including people charged with DUI in Alameda County, San Mateo County, Contra Costa County and Santa Clara County.
  • Does the attorney handle complex cases? We are not a ‘plea bargain’ DUI defense firm. Our attorneys handle complex cases involving enhanced charges, DUI accidents and repeat DUI charges and felony DUI. We have handled thousands of cases, always with a focus on fighting aggressively for the best possible outcome.
  • Does the attorney handle everything? Our DUI lawyers are with you from the moment you retain us, including arraignment and getting you out of jail, the DMV hearing to protect your driver’s license and every step throughout the legal process. We are able to handle many legal procedures without making it necessary for your presence in the court room.

At The Law Offices of Michael L. Davidson, you won’t pay for inexperience. We know the legal process and understand how to challenge everything to help you protect your freedom and our future.
