Berkeley DUI Attorney

When Charged with a DUI, You are Faced with the Challenge of Defending your Freedom

If convicted of a DUI, your freedom can be limited, and your future becomes uncertain. You could lose your driver’s license, your job, or worse. You could lose time in a legal battle or while sitting in jail. Time is the most precious commodity, as it’s the one thing you can never get back.

Finding legal representation that will do everything necessary to prepare your case and ultimately dismiss or reduce the charges against you is paramount. An excellent attorney can help to save you time in preparation by handling everything for you and ensuring your case is handled correctly.

As your legal representative, I will relentlessly advocate preserving your freedom so you don’t spend any unnecessary time in jail or risk losing your license. To obtain this goal takes experience, sincerity, tenacity, and attention to detail. I proudly embody these qualities and bring them to the table each time I defend a client. My clients are my passion, and each case is handled with the utmost care.

Second Chances

If you make a mistake, it does not mean your life is over. Many good people find themselves in situations where a moment of poor judgment turns their world upside down. An arrest does not have to be the beginning of the end. It can be a new beginning. It can sometimes even help you build a road to a better life.

I want to work with you to show the Judge and DA that you are not someone who should spend time in jail or lose your right to drive. There are many choices and legal rights that most people are unaware of. I am here to present you with those options and help you obtain them.

As a former Deputy District Attorney and experienced Alameda County Criminal Defense Lawyer, I can help you understand and exercise your Constitutional Rights.

You should know that hiring an experienced attorney can bring clarity to an otherwise confusing situation. I can relieve your frustration and cut a clear path to the best possible solution with knowledge and experience. I can act as a buffer between you and the court system, reducing the need for you to appear and work with a schedule that better suits your needs. Helping you avoid unnecessary jail time and sentencing schemes is also a priority. I have a proven record of success in this area.

Guiding you Through the Process

Office consultations or phone information are free of charge. Please call the office for information or to set up a personal interview. You will be provided with a written statement of fees to take home, consider, and discuss with your family before you decide on hiring me or any other attorney. There is absolutely no obligation, and I guarantee that you will know far more about your case and, as a result, have much greater peace of mind after we talk.

How Louis J. Goodman Can Help to Alleviate Your Fears

I have been in the same easily accessible location for the past 30 years. Additionally, I have 30 years of experience and am a former Alameda County District Attorney. This level of professional legal experience is evident in most of my cases, where charges have been dismissed or get plea-bargained away. The Judge or DA sees that the client is not the kind of person that should be jailed.
