Fight a DUI Charge in Long Beach

Building a Strong Defense for Your DUI Charge

DUI penalties in California are amongst the stiffest in the nation. Driving under the influence of alcohol (.08% or greater) or drugs, or a combination thereof, is a misdemeanor offense that stays on your court records for ten years. A DUI charge is a serious offense since it will affect you now and in the future. Loss of your driving privilege may affect your ability to work, earn a living and support your family.

Contact a Long Beach DUI defense attorney if you have been charged with DUI. We can review your case and discuss defense strategies to help prevent a conviction.

The penalty for a first time driving while intoxicated offense can range from a suspension of your driver's license, fines and alcohol education program, to jail time. For second or third offenders, the punishment can be far greater, and can include loss of your driver's license for an extended period, completion of a long-term alcohol treatment program and incarceration for up to a year or longer.

You can also be arrested for DUI if you have been impaired by a drug or other chemical intoxicant such as:

  • LSD
  • Ecstasy
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Prescription drugs
  • Aerosol inhalation
  • Methamphetamines
  • Heroin
  • PCP
  • Glue-sniffing

The Law Office of Leonard Matsuk has handled hundreds of DUI cases over the years and is very familiar with the changing laws that apply to these cases. Inexperienced or "cheap" DUI lawyers will often plead you guilty without exploring possible defenses to your case. It pays to hire an experienced attorney who is a confident negotiator and knows the nuances in this evolving area of the law.

Contact a Long Beach DUI Attorney if you have been arrested for DUI to have your case reviewed and for skilled legal counsel.
