Let Us Fight for You

We have a long history of protecting our clients' reputations and we have our own reputation for success with DUI defense. We know how to protect your rights, your privacy and your image. And our Pasadena DUI defense attorneys know how to defend your freedom in even the most serious criminal cases including felony DUI, vehicular manslaughter and even DUI murder. But even for a first time DUI, we bring the same level of commitment to the defense of our clients' rights.

You Have Options

When charged with DUI or driving under the influence of drugs (DUID) in California, you have many options. You can call a gigantic law firm that floods the airwaves with advertising and treats clients like a number. You can accept a bad plea deal. You can beg for the mercy of the court, or you can try to defend yourself without the assistance of a lawyer. Hutton & Khalaf has other suggestions. Our Pasadena DUI defense lawyers have represented thousands of clients. Because of our extensive experience, we have many options for your defense. We can reach a settlement before trial, plea to a lesser charge such as a non-alcohol related reckless driving charge or a speed charge, or seek to get your original DUI charges dismissed by meticulously analyzing the evidence involved. Without a lawyer on your side, you may be unaware of all the options you have.
