If you’re arrested for a DUI in Ventura County, you need the assistance of an experienced DUI lawyer like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend practices criminal defense and takes cases in Ventura County and throughout Southern California.

An intoxicated driving charge is serious because a conviction can significantly impact your life. Although prosecutors charge most drunk driving suspects with misdemeanors, under the right circumstances, you could face one or more felony counts.
In addition to working through the criminal process, drivers accused of drunk driving will also face a DMV process. Administrative sanctions include an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. They differ from those that can be applied in a criminal court.
Aside from license suspension, you can also face jail time, fines, fees, driver retraining requirements, expensive ignition interlock requirements, increased insurance costs and additional suspensions or restrictions on your driver’s license. Because a drunk driving arrest is a criminal matter, you need (and want) the assistance of a true criminal defense professional.
