Our founding attorney, Richard Lawson has a background as a former DUI prosecutor and therefore has a wealth of experience with jury trials and DUI motions. he has been handling DUI cases for 18 years.

We are prepared to aggressively defend our clients and walk you through the many components of a DUI charge.

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence crimes such as drugs & DUI, marijuana cases, minor in possession of alcohol or DUI under 21, your attorney needs to be able to fight not only your DUI charges, but additional related charges that make the penalties upon conviction worse. For example, a minor in possession of alcohol charge will automatically include a one-year suspended license penalty. If you have prior DUI convictions, you need the help of a lawyer when you go to court. A skilled legal mind might be able to nullify the charges for failed blood & breath tests or field sobriety tests, and can present a strong defense for your case at your ALS Hearing. It may be necessary for you to appear in a hearing for your DUI charge even if you are from out of state.
