VEHICULAR CRIMES AND DUI
While often not a high-profile crime, being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can have a significant impact on a person's life and/or livelihood, particularly in the tragic event of an injury or fatality.
At the Law Office of John M. Runfola in San Francisco, California, we have extensive experience with DUIs and vehicular crimes and approach them vigorously. We understand that this experience is very upsetting for the individual involved. Our attorney will help you understand the consequences of a possible conviction, which typically range from a fine to the suspension or revocation of your license. In more serious cases, aggressive representation is even more critical. If you have been arrested in connection with an accident that resulted in grave injury or death, a DUI arrest may result in prosecution for aggravated assault, negligent homicide, vehicular manslaughter or even murder. It is important to begin to work on your defense as soon as possible after your arrest.
As with any criminal matter, cases related to driving under the influence require thoughtful consideration at every stage. We understand the particular stresses associated with this type of case, which can be a jarring introduction to the criminal justice system. We can explain your options and help you craft an effective defense. We can also fight the DMV ramifications that you will face as a result of your arrest.
