Driving under the influence is a very serious criminal offense. If you are arrested and charged for DUI you will face severe penalties that can last for many months or even years after your conviction. California has extremely strict laws regarding DUI and holds a zero tolerance policy for intoxicated driving. The prosecution will always pursue the harshest, fullest punishment the law will allow, which can result in many years in jail or prison and extremely costly fines.

In the event of an accident caused by a drunk driver the situation become much more serious and an arrested driver could face felony charges, especially if someone else is seriously injured or killed. If you are facing these criminal charges, a San Francisco DUI lawyer can offer you the best chance at fighting your charges and avoiding a conviction.

When an intoxicated driver operates their vehicle on the road their abilities are impaired, which can cause them to have erratic and dangerous driving behaviors. These dangerous conditions can cause severe accidents with other drivers, pedestrians or even people inside their homes if the car is going at a high enough speed. The resulting collision from a drunk driving accident can be very deadly. Every year many people are injured or killed in drunk driving accidents, so laws are constantly revised to make penalties harsher to deter drunk driving.
