When you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), impounding your vehicle can be a potential repercussion. The California Office of Traffic Safety supports and manages the state’s vehicle impoundment program in an effort to keep drug drivers from harming other people on the road. Your vehicle could be impounded for 30 days, depending on the severity of your charges.
At the Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, an experienced and knowledgeable Pasadena DUI defense attorney can provide the assistance you need to fight for your innocence in your legal matter. You have legal rights and we can help you protect them.
Besides Losing Your Vehicle, You Could Be Facing Sever Consequences
Besides vehicle impoundment, if you are facing allegations for DUI, and wind up being convicted, you could be penalized by:
- Jail or prison time
- Large fines
- Mandatory alcohol classes or treatment
- Community service
- Ignition interlock device
- Criminal record, which may count as a strike under California’s Three Strikes laws, and may not be eligible for DUI expungement in the future
Like any legal matter, the best results will come from having effective and aggressive representation to fight your charges. We will scrupulously go over the details of your arrest and build a defense strategy to try and avoid or minimize the penalties you could face. Do not answer questions or provide statements to police, investigators or prosecutors without consulting your lawyer first, as this could be damaging to your case. You have the legal right to have your legal representation present for any questioning. We will guide you through the legal system and inform you of your options, based on your particular circumstances.
