Drunk Driving Defense
If you have been charged with drunk driving, you will want the assistance of a Redwood City DUI lawyer. Drunk driving is a very serious charge that carries penalties that can include jail time, monetary fines, and license suspensions.
What to do if you are stopped on suspicion of DUI
You should know that there are defenses to a DUI charge even if you allegedly failed a field sobriety test or blood alcohol test. In addition, an experienced attorney might be able to help you negotiate a deal so that you can avoid the most serious penalties.
The criminal justice system can be a complex and confusing morass for someone unfamiliar with the process. Prosecutors and police officers may have the distinct advantage over you as they have been through this process many times before.
That is why it is critical to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Your attorney can help even the fight by explaining the charges you face and the options for your defense. Your attorney can also handle the discussions and negotiations with prosecutors to ensure that your rights are fairly represented.
Fighting Traffic Tickets
Almost everyone has received a traffic ticket at some point. While receiving a traffic ticket may seem like a minor offense, a ticket can have serious consequences such as monetary fines, increased insurance premiums, points on your driving record, and even potentially losing your driver’s license.
Hiring a traffic ticket attorney is often a wise decision as your attorney knows the arguments and tactics that work in traffic court. Mr. Silveira has successfully handled over 3,000 traffic ticket cases, with the vast majority resulting in dismissals or reductions to non-point violations.
Representation Before the DMV
If you have an upcoming DMV hearing, you may want to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to discuss your options. Mr. Silveira has extensive experience representing clients at the DMV for reasons such as negligent operator hearings, medical re-examinations, DUI admin per se hearings, and potential license suspensions.
