South San Diego DUI county cases means you are heading to Chula Vista for court

A San Diego DUI can mean a DUI charge all over the county.   The South Bay county court in Chula Vista is where criminal cases occurring in the south county are heard.   It is important to find a knowledgeable attorney when dealing with the South Bay court.  If you have a court date at 500 Third Ave., Chula Vista , California, you need more than a DUI criminal defense attorney who handles cases in that South County Division of the Superior Court of San Diego County.  You need someone who can connect with the jury pool.  Someone who can read the variety of police reports (not all police reports are the same).  Several attorneys are barely familiar with SDPD reports.  The best defense points are often found in a San Diego DUI report.  You have to be familiar with that report to know what is in it (or MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT IS NOT IN THERE).  

Chula Vista DUI and South Bay cases were the reasons I made sure my office was just up the freeway for their convenience (in Mission Valley, with a convenient exit off I-15).


Never forget the completely separate & independent DMV deadline.  Your lawyer must contact DMV within 10 days of your arrest in order to have the right to an administrative hearing whether or not to keep your driver’s license or privilege to drive if out of state license.  

From border crossings at San Ysidro to Chula Vista DUI checkpoints, southern San Diego county drivers face the seriousness of having to appear in South Bay for a drunk driving case.  

Folks coming from Tijuana Mexico to drivers stopped in Bonita, National City, Otay Mesa, Chula Vista, finding the right DUI attorney is important.  Knowledge of the local Chula Vista court and the DMV process is essential.

Coronado Island is a great place to visit but the police there will not hesitate to arrest a person for a San Diego DUI, whether civilian or military.

Imperial Beach has lots of character.  The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department arrests people for San Diego DUI (county) there all the time.

All these cases end up in South Bay.  The South County Division Superior Court is located at 500 Third Ave., Chula Vista, CA 91910.  We know the court and can usually go for you, saving you from taking your day off to attend court.

Hire a Proactive, affordable, and quality defense when you are facing San Diego DUI charges.  Whether you have been charged of a San Diego DUI, Poway DUI, La Mesa DUI, Santee DUI, Mission Valley DUI, Clairemont DUI, Point Loma DUI, La Jolla DUI, Carmel Valley DUI, Mira Mesa DUI, Pacific Beach DUI, Del Mar DUI, Carmel Valley DUI, Encinitas DUI, Oceanside DUI, Ocean Beach DUI, Escondido DUI, Vista DUI, San Marcos DUI, Carlsbad DUI, El Cajon DUI it is vital you need to hire an attorney who knows how to defend your rights and can determine if the government can prove their case.  Contact the Law Office of Mark Deniz now for a free case evaluation.
