Driving Under Influence (DUI) is a punishable offense. A conviction in a DUI case has significant consequences. In the least case, the convicted person can have his driving right revoked.
If you hire a competent DUI attorney to defend your case, you will probably be able to get your charges reduced or even dropped. Depending upon your past history and the specific circumstances of your case, your attorney might be able to negotiate a lesser penalty.
A DUI charge can change your future. Even if there are strong evidences against you, you should still consult a Los Angeles DUI attorney. This will improve your chances of obtaining a favorable verdict.
The talented team of attorneys at Kosnett Law Firm has defended numerous individuals facing DUI charges. We are adept at finding the flaws in the prosecution’s case. If you are facing a DUI charge, don’t try to resolve it on your own. This may result in fines, jail time, community service, or other penalties.
In Los Angeles, a DUI conviction carries serious penalties. Therefore, it is imperative that you hire an experienced DUI defense lawyer to defend your case.
Penalties for DUI include:
- Community service
- Public work service
- Home arrest
- Suspension of License
- Revocation of License
- Alcohol treatment ordered by the court
- Alcohol education ordered by the court
A DUI charge will result in the immediate suspension of your license. This will happen even before your case reaches the court. If you don’t challenge this suspension within a specific period of time, you will lose your right to keep your license. Our DUI lawyers can represent your case and challenge the license suspension.
We have handled hundreds of DUI cases and hence we know how to defend your case aggressively. Aggressive representation is crucial in cases where someone was killed or injured. DUI cases that result in injury or death are treated as felony cases. If you get convicted in a felony DUI case, you may face imprisonment.
Our DUI attorney will approach the DMV and request a hearing to prevent the automatic suspension of your license. This request has to be made within ten days of your arrest or citation. If the request for the hearing is made by an attorney, there is a good chance that the date of hearing will be scheduled later. This will buy you time and your attorney will be able to conduct a detailed investigation into the evidences against you. Our attorneys will attend the hearing for you so that you can get on with your life.

I am an alumni adviser for a fraternity at USC. The chapter was involved in a disciplinary action with the university. After receiving unusually harsh and unfair sanctions from a student/faculty review committee, our chapter sought counsel from James Kosnett. He attended a hearing with USC administrators, and prepared a compelling written appeal.
