The Law Firm of Sean F. Leslie has a great deal of experience representing clients in Carlsbad, San Diego, Vista, Escondido, Encinitas, Vista, Oceanside and the other cities of San Diego County in matters involving driving under the influence (DUI), driving on a suspended license, and all other traffic violations. My law firm also represents many clients who live outside San Diego County and outside California that come to visit our many local attractions and find themselves, unfortunately, being arrested in this county.
I have a special insight when it comes to representing those accused of driving under the influence and other traffic violations because of my previous law enforcement patrol officer background. Also, having practiced criminal law in San Diego County since 1993, my law firm is extremely knowledgeable about the law enforcement agencies and the individual police officers that conduct the majority of DUI and traffic arrests within San Diego County.
The penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or under the influence of a prescribed medication or a controlled substance can be very severe—even if this is your first arrest and charge for a DUI offense. Penalties can include:
- Enormous fines
- Mandatory license suspension
- Jail time
- Participation in programs for alcohol treatment
- Work projects
- Community service
DUI and other traffic offenses can affect you financially—not only with expensive fines and program fees, but your insurance carrier could dramatically increase your premiums for a number of years if you are arrested and/or convicted of a DUI or another kind of traffic violation.
If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence (drunk driving), driving on a suspended license, or any other traffic violation, my Law Firm can and will protect your interests. I am an experienced criminal defense attorney, and I can help you avoid getting your license suspended or—at the very least—help you get "restricted" status so that you can drive to your place of work.
My law firm is committed to excellence, and we will fight for your rights in court and at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). We will offer you experienced counsel regarding the way the legal system works. My law firm will also use solid & proven strategies that work so that you can resume driving while ensuring that your insurance premiums and license status are only minimally affected—if at all.
