Help Resolving Drunk Driving Charges

If you are charged with DUI/DWI, you face serious consequences. In addition to heavy fines and possible jail time, you may also lose your license. At the Law Office of Philip DeJong in Ukiah, I am a DUI defense lawyer who is ready to protect your rights and help you keep your license. Many people charged with drunk driving have never faced criminal charges before. Luckily, you do not have to go through this process on your own; I will be there for you every step of the way.

Defending Those Accused Of Drunk Driving

For nearly 40 years, I have successfully defended people accused of alcohol and drug-related violations, as well as other crimes, in California state courts. I believe that it is important to give clients an honest evaluation of their chances immediately after reviewing the police report. Sitting down with you face to face, I will advise you on the merits of going to trial versus negotiating a plea agreement.

Many DUI/DWI cases cannot be successfully tried to a jury, and it is my job to help you understand if you can be treated fairly at trial. If your case can be successfully defended, I will prepare an aggressive defense for trial. If not, I will do everything possible to minimize the damages, such as reducing the length of any driver's license suspension and addressing court-imposed probation terms.

DMV And License Suspension Matters

If you have been charged with drunk driving, your license will be suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). My dedication to clients goes beyond the courtroom, as I will protect your rights in all administrative hearings. It is extremely important that you request a hearing in front of the DMV within 10 days of your arrest, or you will automatically lose your license.
