If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a DUI, then you need to contact Attorney Cook right away.


A DUI arrest is a serious allegation and it must not be taken lightly. Those arrested for DUI are usually charged with two separate violations . Driving under the influence in California violates Vehicle Code section 23152, subdivision (a). Driving under the influence may also entail  driving with a Blood Alcohol level of .08% or higher.

Requesting an APS Hearing

You have only 10 calendar days to contact the DMV to request an Administrative Per Se Hearing (APS).  If you fail to effectively request an APS Hearing, then your license will be suspended.   An APS Hearing is entirely separate from your criminal case and different rules and standards of proof apply.

DUI Penalties

Pleading “Guilty” or “No Contest” to a DUI or DUI-related offense may result in severe penalties that may extend beyond the court system.  For example, if you plead No Contest to a DUI, you may lose your ability to keep your trucking job.  Anyone who drives as part of their job needs to be very careful when hiring an attorney to deal with a DUI.

Multiple DUI Convictions

Being convicted of multiple DUI will guarantee you time in jail.  Certain courthouse are give lighter DUI penalties while other courthouses and counties have a reputation for being more punitive.  Having an experienced DUI attorney can be  of tremendous help, regardless of whether it’s your first DUI or your 3rd or 4th DUI.
