San Anselmo DUI Defense Attorney

Marin County DUI Defense Lawyer

Burglin Law Offices, P.C. provides skilled and aggressive DUI defense and related legal services for clients in Marin County and throughout northern California. Attorney Paul Burglin co-authors California Drunk Driving Law, a legal work that is frequently relied upon by less-experienced lawyers in the state when they are defending a client for DUI. Paul is one of only five California attorneys that is Board-Certified by the National College of DUI Defense, as approved by the American Bar Association, and he is the "go to" attorney for DMV hearing officers, judges, and prosecutors when someone close to them is facing a DUI charge.

Practice Area Overview

Attorney Burglin represents clients in the following practice areas:

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Defense: Attorney Burglin handles first-time DUIs, second and multiple DUI arrests, underage DUIs, misdemeanor DUIs, and felony DUIs often involving accidents and other aggravated circumstances. He can represent you at your DMV hearing, and he utilizes the most effective defense strategies during your criminal proceeding to minimize or avoid jail time and mitigate the situation as much as possible.

DUI Defense for Out-of-State Residents: For tourists visiting California who are pulled over and arrested for DUI, dealing with the case remotely is an uphill battle. Attorney Burglin's depth of knowledge of the court system and how the California DUI process works give out-of-state residents a major advantage in fighting the charges against them.

DUI Defense for Members of the Military: The military diversion program gives qualifying current and former members of the U.S. military who are charged with misdemeanor DUI the opportunity to receive the help they need for substance abuse and other issues, without the stigma of a criminal record. Attorney Burglin knows the ins and outs of this program, and what arguments to make to ensure the court recognizes an individual's eligibility to participate.

Professional License DUI Defense: When professionals, such as attorneys, pilots, medical doctors, and nurses are charged with DUI, they may face the loss of their professional license, and thus, the loss of their livelihood. Attorney Burglin has experience defending licensees, and he knows what California licensing boards want to see from individuals seeking to obtain or maintain their professional license after a DUI.

Commercial Driver's License (CDL) DUI Defense: If you hold a CDL and are arrested for DUI, the consequences are more severe and your CDL is at risk of driver's license suspension or revocation. Attorney Burglin can handle all aspects of your CDL DUI defense, including representation at physical & mental license revocation hearings and negligent operator suspension hearings.

Domestic Violence: Because domestic violence cases frequently involve the use of alcohol by one or both parties involved, attorney Burglin is often called upon to handle the defense of these cases. The consequences for domestic violence convictions in California can extend to things like loss of employment and spousal support. If you are facing a domestic violence charge, give attorney Burglin a call now before talking any further to the police about it.
