California DUI Penalty Enhancements
If getting charged with a DUI isn’t bad enough, the legislature has defined certain situations where courts are authorized and encouraged to enhance the penalties associated with a DUI conviction. The following “Special Allegations” define these exact circumstances. If you have been charged with any of these special allegations, remember, the prosecutor has the same burden of proving these beyond a reasonable doubt that they have for the elements of the initial offense.
High BAC Under CVC § 23578
Under this code section, the court is allowed to and encouraged to increase the fines, public work service, and other consequences when the defendant’s BAC is above .15% by volume.
Child Endangerment Under CVC § 23572
If someone accused of DUI had a child under the age of 14 in the vehicle at the time of of the offense, may be subject to mandatory custody time even on the first offense.
Reckless Driving + DUI Under CVC § 25582
A person who drives recklessly while under the influence may be subject to significant mandatory jail time even on the first offense. Driving recklessly is specifically defined as going 30 mph over the speed limit on a freeway or 20 mph over the speed limit on the surface streets.
Successfully defending a misdemeanor case may include the following procedures:
- Court Appearances
- DMV “Admin Per Se” Hearing
- DMV License Status Hearing
- Motion Hearings on discovery and evidence admissibility/suppression
- Prosecutor Negotiation
- Judge or Jury Trial
- Plea Bargaining
Some of the strategies we employ may include the following:
- Discovery Sanctions
- Subpoenaing Documents
- Trial Continuances
- Pitchess Motions
- Witness 402 Hearings
- and others…

Keep shopping, this "service" will not help u save one single dollar. U will lose time, energy, & $ with these guys. I provided dash cam footage on a special Zip drive and he didn't even use it. I could've asked the officer that wrote my ticket to dismiss it and asked my judge for leniency/a reduction, without paying $149. I still owe the full fine $401. I should've just set the 149 dollars that Scott charged me on fire. Even after years of law school, my representation put in as little effort as humanly possible. Waste of so much time, energy, & money.
These Guys are Awesome. ..got my Tix dismissed today.... purely professional every step of the way.....thank You
Not sure how you guys did it. I was doing 86 in a 65 going north on the 15. Motorcycle Cop busted me on radar. Pretty clear if you ask me. $450 ticket. This process couldnt have been simpler. Didn’t have to do anything other than scan the ticket and give a brief description of what happened and email it. Got this today in my email 🙂 ---------------------- Dear Kenan, I am pleased to inform you that we successfully dismissed your ticket. I've attached a copy of the court docket for your records. You don't need to do anything further. Thank you for using our services. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
