The DUI Man saved my life! Thank you Mr. Bialys for all you did, I am eternally grateful! W.M.
I got my 2nd DUI in Los Angeles, and was scared out of my mind. Out of everyone I spoke with, the DUI Man was the most knowledgeable and sincere lawyer I spoke with. He got my charges reduced to a wet reckless, and saved my drivers license and my job! Thank you Michael!! S.Y.
I was very scared after getting my first DUI in October, but the DUI Man took care of everything from start to finish, and got my charges dismissed! No clue what I would have done without him, I will refer him to anyone I know that gets a DUI". F.D.

|What to do if Charged or Arrested with DUI|
What to do if Charged or Arrested with Driving Under the Influence (DUI)The first thing is CALL US! It is always a good idea to consult with a lawyer when confronting any legal issue. Remember in this case you are being charged with a criminal offense. You could be doing yourself a great disservice by operating within a system that you don’t understand. At least a basic consultation with a licensed experienced Los Angeles DUI lawyer will help you level the playing field a bit as you can begin to understand some of the rules and rights that apply in this situation.
Secondly, if you have been arrested or charged for California Drunk Driving, you MUST request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest to contest any suspension of your license. If you do not request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest, your license will be automatically suspended or revoked 30 days after your arrest. Very often the defendant isn’t properly informed of these rights, and by the time they have their first court date they have missed the 10 day window and unfortunately they lose their license. This is a prefect example of how not understanding the system can seriously hurt you or your case.
When you consider that California DUI penalties can result in any combination of probation, jail, fines, alcohol education classes, an ignition interlock device being installed in your car, community service, Cal-Trans, vehicle impound, increased automobile insurance, it would be irresponsible not to at least contact our firm to discuss how we can best help you avoid these penalties.
