Drunk Driving FAQ

Riverside DUI Attorney

DUI is one of the most commonly charged criminal offenses in the Riverside area. Our legal team at Grech & Packer has provided professional and aggressive defense to our clients and have garnered a reputation throughout the legal community as the highest quality defense team in all types of DUI charges, from a first time DUI through to vehicular manslaughter or other felony DUI cases.

Will I go to jail?
Most DUI convictions include some number of days in jail. DUI penalties are determined by the judge in the case, and some are extremely tough and will choose to give the maximum sentence. Never appear in court without the representation of a skilled lawyer from our firm to protect you and fight to avoid the penalties that a conviction will bring.

Will I lose my license?
You will lose your license unless you take action to avoid it. The license suspension is addressed by the DMV, and is separate from the criminal case. In order to avoid a suspension of your license, you have 10 days in which to arrange a DMV hearing. Our legal team at the firm has extensive experience in representing clients at these hearings and taking action to assist them in avoiding a license suspension. A restricted license may be sought in cases when that action is necessary.

How do you defend a DUI case?
Each case is unique with regard to the evidence and what could be challenged in court. Many cases, upon review, have excellent defense possibilities, including incorrect testing procedures, a failure to have probable cause to pull over our client, or problems with testing devices or other evidence that can be successfully challenged in court.

What are the costs of a defense attorney?
You will likely discover that your hidden costs after a conviction are more than getting a defense attorney from the firm. Fines, transportation costs, court fees, increased insurance rates and even job loss are some of the common ramifications of a conviction.

What types of cases does your firm defend?
We defense all types of DUI cases, including multiple DUI, underage DUI, out of state DUI, DUI with injury, felony DUI, first time DUI, and vehicular manslaughter. We are highly qualified and aggressive in defending our clients.
