Have you been charged with a DUI in Fresno or Madera County?
The charge of a DUI can have many consequences far beyond criminal liability. The department of motor vehicles (DMV) can suspend your driver's license. Your employment can also be effected especially if your job requires a valid California driver's license. Hiring a criminal defense attorney that specializes in DUI cases may be the only way to mitigate the far reaching consequences of a DUI charge and conviction. The DMV can be very complicated to navigate by yourself, you will need an experienced attorney to help guide you through that process.

Can I get charged with a DUI for being under the influence of Marijuana?
Yes you can be charged for a DUI for marijuana. Having a valid medical marijuana card is not a defense to this charge. Fortunately, science may be on your side in these particular cases. Studies have been conducted that driving while under the influence of marijuana varies from person to person and unlike alcohol there is no measurable amount that would indicate whether or not you are under the influence.
