Walnut Creek DUI Lawyer

Being arrested for drunk driving or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) can be a confusing and frightening experience.  In order to protect yourself and your family from DUI charges you need to take the right steps immediately, so that you have the best possible defense.

The first steps you take after your DUI arrest can be vital to the final outcome of your trial. For that reason never use a general attorney for DUI cases.  DUI laws are complex and require an in-depth understanding of the legal system in a specific regard.  Mistakes made by an inexperienced general attorney can be extremely costly. Other lawyers may be able to represent you in court, but only a specialized DUI attorney can hope to gain you a favorable outcome.

Tom O'Connor was amazing. His office is nice and comfortable, his advice is sound and his rates were very reasonable. He helped my son out of a tough spot. I would definitely recommend this firm and Tom. I really appreciate that all of the information that I needed was emailed to me; my schedule is very hectic. I am very pleased with the results of my son's case and cannot thank Tom enough.
