If you are seeking multiple offense DUI lawyers in Pasadena, turn to experienced attorneys who focus on this area of criminal defense. DUI defense lawyers in Southern California are plentiful. Many of them are excellent attorneys; Hutton & Khalaf, however, has been focused on DUI defense for decades. We have more than 65 years of experience.
We have a history of success in some of the most serious cases:
The stakes are high in multiple offense DUI cases and the penalties for conviction can be catastrophic. In California, repeat offenders may be sentenced to mandatory jail time, massive fines, and long-term probation, and face severe limitations on career prospects. Minimize your risks of these outcomes by having highly skilled and extremely experienced DUI attorneys in Pasadena on your side.
Hutton & Khalaf is recognized as one of the region's leading drunk driving defense firms. We are not a DUI defense mill. We are not a discount law firm. We have massive resources and extensive experience. We can find hope in even what may appear to be hopeless cases. This is why we prepare every case for trial.
In trials, we have an excellent track record of jury verdicts, but as we have with many of our clients, we may be able to achieve a favorable outcome for you without having to take your case to trial. Not all attorneys who focus on DUI have earned the right to call themselves criminal defense specialists. We have. Call us to have proven counsel on your side.
As experienced DUI defense lawyers, we know that a trial brings added risk for many of our clients. If you are sincere about finding a sobriety program, we are often able to work with the District Attorney to find an alternative probation sentence and diversion program that can help avoid a conviction upon successful completion. In all cases, we work hard to knock the charge down to an alcohol-related reckless driving or other 'wet' charge that doesn't carry the weight of a full DUI conviction. This is especially important in multiple offense or repeat DUI cases.
"We really do care about your alcohol and / or drug problem. Even a second offense is too many. If you are serious about getting sober, we will work with the prosecutor and the judge to find a program that is right for you. Our goal is to help you stay out of custody while you get the help you and your family needs." — Attorney Richard Hutton
If you have been arrested, call us for comprehensive DUI defense from experienced lawyers immediately. We can help you from the moment a law enforcement officer stops you to the resolution of your case. For many of our clients, the possible loss of their driver's license or CDL is the most serious consequence of a DUI conviction. For others, they may be facing years in prison. We handle all DUI matters as two cases — the driver's license suspension hearing and the criminal trial. We fight aggressively to help you maintain your driving privileges while your case progresses through the criminal justice system.
