Protecting Your Right to Stay on the Road

When you're arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs in California, your driver's license is automatically replaced by a temporary one that is good for only 30 days. However, if you do not schedule an appeal hearing within 10 days, you automatically lose your driving privileges for a mandatory 120 days.

With a smart criminal defense attorney, you may not have to give up those privileges at all.

At the Law Offices of Mark A. Thiel, we fight to protect your right to remain on the road. Attorney Mark Thiel has over 20 years of experience in criminal law. Drawing on his knowledge, experience and trial skills, he strives to provide the tough legal defense you need at a price you can afford. He works directly with you to help you make informed decisions that protect your freedom and your future.

You Have Alternative Options to Pleading Guilty

Before you plead guilty to a DUI offense, you should first explore your available options with our knowledgeable Stockton drunk driving lawyer. Depending on your circumstances, we can appeal to obtain a restricted driving permit, allowing you to drive to and from work, during work and for other defined reasons. If you are a first-time offender, we may also be able get your charges acquitted.

When you hire us, attorney Thiel will represent your interests before both the Department of Motor Vehicles and the criminal court. He will investigate the legality of your stop by asking questions like:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over?
  • Did the officer obtain your consent to administer a breath test or take a blood sample?
  • Was your breath alcohol or blood test handled correctly?
  • Were you informed of your rights?

The answers to these questions could mean the difference between conviction and acquittal. Occasionally, we will collaborate with professional experts to aid our investigation. Our attorney fights on both the civil and criminal fronts to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
