DUI Arrests and Defense

Defend Your Rights

It is a common misconception that you must plead guilty to any DUI charges in the state of California. In fact, many people plead guilty simply because they are unaware of their rights in a DUI case. No matter what the details may be in  your DUI case, you still have rights and may benefit from legal representation. Defeating DUI charges are well within the realm of possibility. We have been able to reduce charges and even get charges dismissed after failed or refused field sobriety tests for certain cases. Timing is of the essence to successfully defending a DUI charge in the state of California.

At Koch, Degn & Gomez we have the experience and aggressive advocacy that it takes to defend you in a DUI case – protecting your rights, driver’s license, and reputation. Our top DUI defense attorney is a former trial deputy district attorney, serving the Tulare County District Attorney office. In this position, Thomas W.
