Pasadena DUI Attorneys

Defending Drivers Since 1994

Being arrested for a DUI can be a very emotionally challenging and costly experience. If you simply plead guilty to a first time DUI charge, you may unnecessarily be convicted of a misdemeanor offense. It is wise to have an experienced DUI attorney represent you in order to challenge the evidence, advocate for the best result possible and guide you through the DMV process, the insurance issues and represent you at the court appearances.

Because the consequences of a DUI conviction are so severe, it is sensible to seek representation from a Pasadena DUI lawyer from Escovar & Avila, LLP as soon as possible after your arrest. We are here to defend your rights and challenge the alleged "evidence" against you.

When your rights are aggressively defended, defenses emerge. For example, on a significant number of cases, after aggressively questioning the arresting officer we have been able to prove that the detention of our client was unlawful, that the officer did not properly administer the breath testing protocol, and that the Field Sobriety Testing was unreliable. These revelations can completely change the result of your case. Call us now for a free consultation to see how we can help you.
