Question: Does my son need a DUI lawyer in San Fernando for his first DUI?

Answer: Yes. A DUI, even a 1st offense DUI is a criminal matter and can involve jail time, heavy fines, alcohol classes, loss of license, and other penalties. See for a more detailed explanation of the charge. An attorney may be able to get the charges dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge to mitigate any potential damages. Additionally, an attorney can handle your son in a DMV hearing as well in order to try to prevent the drivers license from being suspended. Note that you only have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing, or else the DMV will likely take action to suspend the license without a hearing on the matter. Feel free to contact me at 818-336-1DUI to discuss the case in more detail. I have had a lot of success getting DUI charges dismissed.
