Williams & Javellana, LLP
Driving a car is a serious responsibility that should be considered a privilege. At any time, this privilege can be taken away from you if you don’t obey the laws. Perhaps the strictest law of all is driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
There is no excuse for driving under the influence. Although you may have driven under the influence before, remember that once is all it takes, and your life can change forever. No more parties at the Chico club, or road trips across the CA area.
If you have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, you will need a very good DUI attorney. All of us understand what’s at stake, and it hurts even worse if you have a family that relies on you for financial support. The minimum penalty you’ll face is losing your driving privileges for a specified time. However, you could face jail time if you harbor a worse accident under the influence.
Whether or not an accident took place you will still need the services of a DUI attorney. The goal here is to have someone explain the laws, your rights, and what you can do to minimize the charges and fines against you. At this point, you’re working with an attorney to help lessen the punishment.
Either way it is going to cost you. You may lose your drivers license depending on the situation, or you may be able to get special license that allows you to only drive to and from work. Your attorney will try to get that for you if you are the sole earner in the household.
Once all of this is over, you should learn that drinking and driving doesn’t pay. And if you find yourself needing to pay, best pay for a good DUI attorney rather than suffer the consequences.
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
