Once on Fullerton roads, however, those driving with a blood alcohol level above .08 will experience the road differently. Not only will their surroundings seem hazy, but their reaction time to their surrounding environment will significantly decrease.

With such debilitations to deal with while on the road, being pulled over by a police officer is bound to happen. Although choosing to drive after drinking may seem like a perfectly rational choice, it has led many to be charged with a DUI.

Being charged with a DUI, Driving while Under the Influence, can irrevocably affect your entire future. A DUI will follow you with every job application and background check.

Being charged with a felony or misdemeanor can be terrifying. How will this charge impact your life? Even worse, how will a conviction impact your life? When you feel the full emotional weight of a felony or misdemeanor on your shoulders, it can be difficult to know what the next steps are and how to protect yourself. In such moments, you only need to think of three words: criminal defense lawyer. Without the right representation, the odds of getting convicted are already stacked against you.

During a trial, the judge and jury will be determining your innocence based on the facts presented to them.

There is a distinction between the evidence itself and the way in which the judge and jury will interpret that evidence. This is where having an experienced criminal defense attorney in Fullerton becomes crucial.

And, as is a part of being a prosecution attorney, they can be very persuasive. It is in the power of your criminal defense attorney to prove your innocence.

Our seasoned attorneys at Fullerton Family Law have the expertise to let the truth speak louder than any story the prosecution can tell. With a compassionate and tailored approach, they will use the facts of the case to maintain your innocence.
