DUI and Criminal Defense

The law firm of Hoffman & Associates helps people in Los Angeles, Orange County, and throughout Southern California who have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) or other criminal offenses.

A DUI is a Serious Matter

Penalties for a DUI conviction can include considerable fines and even a jail sentence. Other court-imposed surcharges and assessments can make a conviction a very costly matter. In addition, you may be required to complete an alcohol education program, and an ignition interlock device may be installed in your car. The potential penalties increase considerably if you have one or more previous DUI convictions. In addition to any criminal charges, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will automatically suspend or revoke your driver’s license, unless you act quickly and request a hearing within ten days of the arrest.

At Hoffman & Associates, we work to find the unique solution that best meets the needs of each individual client. The answer may lie in questioning the lawfulness or validity of the arrest and other search and seizure issues, as well as challenging the accuracy of the testing procedures and testing equipment used. In addition to providing a strong defense, our office is adept at negotiating favorable alternatives to trial or pursuing alternative sentencing that minimizes the negative impact of a DUI conviction.

Help With Other Offenses

With 18 years of experience in the courtroom, Hoffman & Associates can also assist in a wide variety of other criminal matters. From traffic infractions to misdemeanors to serious drug charges ranging from possession to trafficking in narcotics, our firm can help you every step of the way, from your initial arrest to trial and beyond. You may not have ever had contact with the criminal justice system before; we are in court every day, fighting for the rights of our clients. Having a skilled, experienced attorney to provide you with sound advice at every stage of the proceeding ensures that you achieve the best outcome possible in your given circumstances.

Experienced, Affordable Legal Representation

An arrest or conviction, even for a minor offense, can have serious repercussions in your personal and professional life, including damage to your reputation and difficulty in getting or keeping a good job. Keeping you out of jail is only one of many functions of a criminal defense attorney. Your lawyer can also work to keep your record clear, by seeking a dismissal of charges or having records sealed or expunged, where appropriate.

At Hoffman & Associates, we approach every case with the goal of finding a creative and innovative solution to your particular legal problem. We also understand the perception that legal services are expensive, and we make every effort to provide quality representation in the most affordable manner. We never charge more than what is necessary to achieve your goal.
