Serving Monterey & the Surrounding Counties

Have you or a loved one been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol?

Our attorneys, Mr. Pernik and Mr. Soltesz, have represented thousands of clients charged with Driving Under Influence of alcohol or drugs. They have obtained many favorable outcomes through both negotiation and trial.

While some law firms only accept simple misdemeanor DUI cases, we possess the necessary skill and experience to defend you in some of the most serious situations, including those where someone has been seriously injured or killed. We regularly work with forensic toxicologists, accident reconstructionists, and other experts in order to bring you the most qualified defense possible in your case.

After an arrest, it is important that you contact our office and schedule a free case evaluation right away.

Remember, you only have 10 days from the day of your arrest to request a DMV hearing in order to challenge the suspension action against your driving privilege.

  • Investigate the methods used to determine your breath or blood alcohol levels and challenge
  • Discuss your rights and options so you can make informed decisions moving forward

Many people do not know that they can challenge a DUI case and that there are many defenses available to help protect you against serious legal action.
