San Diego DUI Defense Lawyers


San Diego County Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys


There is no question that community police throughout San Diego County take DUI seriously. In fact, California state law includes some of the harshest penalties in the nation for alcohol- and drug-related driving offenses. A conviction on a first offense could result in mandatory jail time, a possible fine up to $10,000 and the loss of your driver's license for up to six months. An experienced San Diego County DUI attorney will make a significant difference in the charges you face and the penalties that result if you are convicted.


If you are facing a first offense DUI in San Diego County, it may be of some comfort to know that prosecutors are typically willing to work with experienced attorneys to find a solution that will not result in the heaviest penalties. At the Law Offices of Arena & Schnitzer, APLC, we are proud of the reputation we have earned over more than 20 years of working with prosecutors. Our firm was built on intelligent strategies and hard work, and we continue to value the relationships we have built with legal professionals in our community.


We Listen to What You Need Out of Your DWI Defense Case.


The truth is, the majority of DUI arrests are the result of mistakes made by good, hardworking people. The reality, though, is that DUI is a serious criminal offense and you will not walk away with a slap on the wrist if you were guilty of driving over the legal BAC limit of .08. But it is not in the prosecutor's or the communities' best interests to strip you of your ability to get to your job or help your family.


We start every DUI case by listening to your concerns and what you and your family need as a satisfactory resolution to your case. When we work up a proposal, the prosecutor knows that the resolution will be based on meeting everyone's needs.


We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case. Our attorneys' fees are reasonable, and we accept all major credit cards for your convenience.
