Handling DUI Charges in Kern County

When facing a DUI arrest or charge, it is a serious matter and deserves to be handled by a dedicated and aggressive attorney who focuses their practice on these types of cases. At Middlebrook & Brehmer, LLP our primary goal is to present an honest and ethical defense based solely on reliable scientific research and results. We have handled thousands of DUI cases in this manner with unmatched results that are rooted in an insightful, educated, intelligent and truthful approach.

Any DUI conviction can bring severe penalties, including the suspension of your driver's license, jail time, steep fines, and tremendous increases in insurance rates. Many DUI charges are dismissed or reduced when handled by the right attorney. Deciding who that attorney is can make all the difference. In most cases, we can appear on your behalf for the entire process, meaning you never need to step inside a courthouse.

At the Law Offices of Middlebrook & Brehmer, our legal team will aggressively pursue your defense in any DUI charge and provide you with any information regarding your recent arrest. We are here to help you understand what to expect in the DUI court process. When you come to us, we explain how breath and blood tests work and how we can challenge these in court. We are skilled in handling drunk driving cases for underage drivers (who are under the age of 21) and can assist out of state drivers who have been arrested in the Bakersfield area.

Our Bakersfield DUI defense lawyers handle legal matters involving the following:

We not only address cases that involve standard, first-offense DUI charges but also multiple DUI offenses, DUI cases involving drugs and DUI with injury cases involving a driver who stands accused of causing a serious car accident while DUI.

Protecting Your Rights & Your Reputation

When facing a DUI charge, there are several important actions that need to be addressed immediately. The first one is the DMV hearing. This hearing will determine the outcome of your driver's license. You have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing. Failure to request that hearing within the first 10 days waives any right to contest the suspension, even if you are clearly not guilty. While this hearing is completely separate from your court case, it is an important part of the DUI defense process.

A thorough and effective DUI defense begins as soon as you have been arrested. There are often good options in your defense that will not be obvious except to an experienced DUI defense attorney. When seeking a lawyer, one wants dedication, ability, experience and a track record of success in DUI defense. At our law firm, our team makes your case a priority and is relentless in aggressively fighting all types of charges. When an exceptional DUI defense team is fighting for you it can minimize the damage to your life and your future.
