DUI Attorney in Long Beach CA

Getting a DUI is always upsetting. After all, your ability to drive hangs in the balance–you could lose your license due to DMV penalties within 30 days and you could face an additional license suspension if convicted in criminal court. You may feel like there’s nothing you can do to address this potentially unfair situation. But in reality, you can fight for a better outcome to your case with help from an experienced DUI attorney in Long Beach CA. At The Mattern Law Firm, we will fight aggressively to protect you from any undeserved or unduly harsh penalties.
We have ample experience defending against all kinds of DUI charges:

We Can Help with Your DMV Hearing
Following an arrest for DUI of alcohol, you have 10 days to request a DMV hearing and contest their administrative suspension of your license. The DMV hearing is not a criminal proceeding, but you are still entitled to bring a DUI attorney in Long Beach CA with you. At The Mattern Law Firm, we have an excellent track record of success in convincing DMV officials not to impose automatic suspensions on our clients. You can trust us to find and exploit every possible strategy for winning the hearing.
Sobriety Tests Can Be Challenged
If you have failed a sobriety test, you might assume you must plead guilty to your DUI charge. This is not true! Sobriety tests are actually vulnerable to all kinds of flaws and errors that could invalidate or at least cast doubt upon their results.
For example, you might have failed a balance or coordination test because you were nervous or scared, not because you were drunk. Or, you might have blown over .08 on a breathalyzer test because you have a medical condition that can put alcohol-compounds on your breath.
Thanks to over 20 years of experience as a DUI attorney in Long Beach CA, Lisa Mattern knows about all the possible flaws in sobriety testing. You can rely on her to explore every possible argument for undermining the results of your failed tests.
The Mattern Law Firm Will Fight for You
No matter how daunting the case against you may seem, your DUI attorney in Long Beach CA can and will help. While we always try to formulate a strategy for avoiding conviction first, if this is not possible given the evidence of the case we can still help by negotiating for a plea deal. We know how the local courts work and we are often able to strike deals that keep our clients out of jail.
