Skilled DUI Defense Representation In San Francisco

Being pulled over for a traffic violation can be disheartening. If police suspect that alcohol or drugs may be involved, a traffic stop can quickly turn into a DUI investigation. When a traffic stop leads to a drunk driving charge, the stakes are raised. The laws that govern DUI charges and your driving privileges are complex. It can take years for an attorney to grasp the nuances of the law in any legal situation. With the complexity of California's DUI laws, it is critical that your defense lawyer has the experience and knowledge to fully protect your rights.

Put More Than 40 Years Of Experience Behind Your DUI Defense

At the Law Offices of Bill Fazio in San Francisco, you will find that I am well-versed in all aspects of California DUI laws. With more than 40 years of experience in criminal law, I have substantial experience in effectively protecting the rights of clients who have been charged with drunk driving. As a former prosecutor, I know how the state builds its cases, and I know how to find the flaws and weaknesses to present an aggressive DUI defense.

People from any background and any walk of life can face DUI charges in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is vital for you to know that a DUI charge is more than a glorified traffic ticket. The consequences can be harsh — even for a first-time offense. Many people are concerned about their driver's license. A DUI arrest essentially triggers two separate legal procedures — the criminal DUI charge and a license suspension process. Drivers only have 10 days to request a DMV hearing (often called an Administrative Per Se Hearing) to challenge a DUI-related driver's license suspension or revocation.

Since 1995, I have provided zealous representation in DUI cases. I am fully prepared to protect clients' rights across the spectrum of serious driving offenses, including:

  • DUI first offense
  • DUI second offense or more
  • DUI refusal cases
  • Felony DUI, including vehicular manslaughter charges
