Former Veteran Prosecutor Dedicated To DUI And Criminal Defense
There should be no question that you need a DUI lawyer in San Diego to help you defend your case and minimize the negative effects of consequences. You're here looking for the right attorney for your case. Dedication, personal service, proactivity and overall value should be at the top of your list.
At The Law Offices of Mark Deniz APLC, I handle your case myself. I have over 10 years of experience handling DUI/DWI cases as a defense attorney and a former veteran prosecutor. As your attorney, we will take proactive steps together from day one to ensure that we build strong, mitigating evidence to present to the prosecution and to the judge at the time of your first court date, roughly six weeks following your arrest. The prosecutor is much more prone to reduce the charge(s) against you if we set the stage.
I offer free case evaluations and initial consultations to clients seeking drunk driving defense throughout the San Diego area, from Chula Vista to Encinitas. My fees are reasonable for the high level of service that I provide, and I offer affordable payment plans to all clients.
Protect Your Driver's License!
One of the worst parts of a DUI arrest is the potential to lose your driver's license. If you are convicted, your license will be suspended for at least six months — more if you have been convicted more than once within 10 years.
Defending your license in California effectively requires aggressive representation from a proactive San Diego DUI attorney. You must notify the DMV within 10 days of your arrest that you will contest the license suspension at a DMV administrative hearing (APS hearing). Your license is valid for 30 days following your arrest, but if you want to protect your driving privileges, you need an attorney now! A public defender will not assist you in this phase.
Full-Service DUI Counsel And Representation
I capitalize on opportunities in your case and develop unique strategies for each aspect of your case: all stages of the DMV administrative process and the criminal charge(s) process. Whether this is the first or fourth time you have been charged with DUI; whether you were charged with drunk driving or drugged driving — I will fight for your best interests and rights with efficiency and discretion.
