Santa Barbara DUI Attorney

Aggressive Defense Against DUI Charges

A person charged with DUI is facing serious consequences if they are convicted. Depending on the circumstances of the case and the driver's DUI history, a conviction can result in the loss of driving privileges, heavy fines and jail time.

Given that so much is at stake in a DUI case, it is important to hire a Santa Barbara criminal defense attorney experienced in DUI cases. A skilled lawyer can competently guide you through your legal proceedings, including your DMV hearing.

You must schedule a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest or your license will be automatically suspended, and possibly revoked. DMV hearings can be extremely technical, and the chances of a person winning without legal help are very low. Even the documentation that is given to a person who is arrested for DUI can be confusing.

My name is Adam L. Pearlman and I represent individuals in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties who have been charged with DUI or DWI. I have considerable knowledge and experience in DUI and DWI cases, and will work aggressively to protect your rights in municipal or criminal court. My firm can also provide capable legal representation at your DUI hearing to help prevent the immediate loss of your driving privileges.

  • Having a child under the age of 14 in the car at the time of the DUI
  • Having a blood-alcohol reading of over .20%

If you have been arrested for a DUI, it is imperative that you contact me regarding your case. I can provide competent counsel regarding the laws pertaining to your particular legal situation, and will skillfully challenge the evidence against you.
