What Type Of DUI Charge Are You Facing?

Driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08 is the most basic DUI charge you can face. We routinely defend against those charges aggressively. Our firm can also take action to protect, preserve or regain your driving privileges when authorities try to suspend your license. This includes representation at DMV licensing hearings.

Depending on the facts of your case, there may be a variety of DUI charges and consequences under California law. These can include drugged driving, prescription medication DUI, DUI with passenger for hire , DUI with an injury or death or DUI involving a commercial license.

For clients who are under the legal drinking age, there is also the possibility of alternative consequences when an underage driver is below the .08 blood alcohol level legal limit. We also handle juvenile court DUIs.

Attorney Wisehart is widely considered one of the Central Valley’s premier trial lawyers not only by his clients but also by his adversaries, his peers, law enforcement officers, and judges and court staff.

How We Push Back Against The Charges For You

Attorney Wisehart has a clear understanding of the strategies and tactics of prosecutors due to his time spent as a deputy district attorney. We often challenge the validity of the initial stop and the validity of the breath and blood tests, and fight to suppress the evidence.

We have built a strong reputation for effective and knowledgeable representation in driving under the influence (DUI) cases, as part of a criminal defense practice that has a proven record of results.
