"I owe The Holley Criminal Defense Law Firm a debt of gratitude for getting my charges dismissed! Not only did I never step into a courtroom, I had direct access to my lawyers. I never once spoke to a secretary or legal aid. They were quick to respond to emails, answer questions, and perhaps most importantly, put my mind at ease during the whole ordeal.

​​You have likely been charged with one or more of the following crimes:  vc23152(a), vc23152(b), vc23152(e), or vc23152(f).  Maybe you were arrested at a Sacramento DUI checkpoint or for swerving your vehicle.  Possibly you were pulled over for something completely unrelated to driving under the influence.  In any event, you likely were given a breath test or blood test, and field sobriety test (FST).  Most DUIs are misdemeanors, however, DUIs with injury to another are commonly charged as felonies.  A DUI arrest does not mean a DUI conviction.  DUI's are highly technical and multifaceted crimes with numerous successful defenses. With harsh penalties and advances in the blood alcohol testing, it is more important than ever that you speak with an experienced Sacramento DUI lawyer to provide you with the best defense possible.
