DUI fine in Los Angeles, CA

Question: I was charged with a DUI in San Feranndo after being arrested a couple nights ago.  I see those signs that say a DUI costs like $10,000.  I am trying to limit this situation as much as I can.  What is the best way to lower a DUI fine in Los Angeles, CA?  Will going to AA meetings help me show the Judge that I am taking things seriously and maybe there would not be a fine at all?

Answer: I would recommend consulting with a DUI attorney that handles DUI cases in San Fernando, CA to discuss your case in more detail in an effort to minimize consequences, including potential fines. It may be possible to have your DUI charges lowered to a lesser charge or completely dismissed.

The best way to avoid DUI fines is to avoid getting convicted all together.  The best chance of getting that to happen is to hire a DUI attorney to review and defend your case.  Along with fines that come along with a DUI conviction, there are other costs.  A mandatory alcohol program if you are convicted of a DUI attorney, increased car insurance premiums, costs for Interlock Device for your car. etc, not to mention your criminal record and a Driver License suspension.

That being said, it is possible to minimize DUI fines in the event you are convicted of a DUI.  This can be done through doing community labor or community service.  Feel free to call me at 818-336-1DUI and we can discuss your case as well as what to expect with your DUI case.

Also, if you are not already aware, you or yoru DUI attorney only has 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing in order to fight a driver license suspension from the DMV seperate and apart from the DUI criminal case.

I look forward to speaking to you about your situation.
