The lawyer serves as the skilled negotiator with prosecutors as sentencing or charges for DUI can be reduced to the following:


  • Wet and Reckless Driving ‘ which basically means that drinking was the cause for arrest. The benefits with this charge include lesser fines and penalties. In addition, defendants will not be subject to an automatic suspension of their driver’s license.


  • Dry Reckless Driving ‘ essentially means that the driver will be charged as driving in an irresponsible or careless manner. This charge is not considered to be a priorable DUI offense. Other benefits include no car insurance hikes, in addition to the obvious lower sentencing.


  • Exhibition of Speed ‘ a skilled lawyer may be able to bargain a misdemeanor DUI into a mere California Vehicle Code 23109 offense. The penalties include jail time and fines, however most first time offenders will be subject to probation and lowered fines alone.
