Defending Against Driving Under the Influence Charges

A conviction for DUI, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs – or a combination of both – has severe consequences in California. Additionally, second, third and subsequent offenses are treated even more harshly. There are numerous aspects of a DUI case that may be challenged, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Lack of probable cause – was there actual probable cause to suspect impaired driving?
  • Breath test issues – was the breath test properly administered; were the results of the breath machine accurate?
  • Roadside sobriety testing – test evaluations are completely subjective and often inaccurate
  • Refusal to take a chemical test – what constitutes a “refusal” to take a chemical test is subject to interpretation

DUI cases include commercial driver DUI’s, underage drinking and driving, open container violations, marijuana driving law, DMV hearings and more. Ask Attorney Sullivan about your particular case.

Theft Offenses

A theft offense may be a felony, or a misdemeanor. A theft offense conviction can result in jail or years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, a permanent criminal record and other serious consequences. Theft offenses include, but are not limited to, petty theft, grand theft, grand theft auto,  burglary, theft offenses with a firearm or weapon, fraud, embezzlement, identity theft and more. The Law Office of Kevin Sullivan represents clients in all theft-related offenses.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence exists when a threat of violence or actual violence occurs between specific parties, including married or previously married couples, those presently or previously in a sexual or intimate relationship, members of the same household, parents, step-parents and others. Violence may include sexual conduct, stalking, harassment, physical contact such as hitting, kicking, biting, restraining, slapping, and more. A conviction for domestic violence may result in jail or prison, a restraining order, court orders prohibiting the accused from entering their own home and/or interacting with their children, and other court sanctions.
