Los Angeles and San Diego DUI Defense Attorneys

If you have been arrested for a DUI in California, you need the experienced DUI attorneys at Hoffman & Associates on your side. With over 30 years of daily courtroom experience, our Los Angeles DUI Lawyers have the knowledge to skillfully and aggressively defend you - whether this is your first DUI, or you have had prior offenses.

Police officers frequently make mistakes, breathalyzer machines malfunction, and technical errors occur after a blood draw. These inaccuracies in DUI testing are more common than you can imagine. Did you know that state law mandates each breathalyzer machine be calibrated and serviced routinely? Records may exist to show the machine used to test you during a DUI stop was not maintained properly and may have provided inaccurate test results. We uncover these mistakes and discrepancies and use them to cast reasonable doubt on your guilt. Examples of how we challenge the prosecution's case against you include:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to believe you were driving under the influence when he stopped you?
  • What was the officer's training on field sobriety tests?
  • How accurate was the breathalyzer test that was performed?
  • Was the blood alcohol content test performed properly?
  • Did your blood alcohol exceed .08% on either test?
An Aggressive DUI Defense

A criminal conviction for DUI carries serious consequences that may include fines in excess of $1,500, mandatory attendance at an alcohol treatment program, or a loss of driving privileges. Don’t take a chance on having any of these outcomes affect your life. Consulting with an experienced San Diego DUI attorney is the smartest move you can make after a DUI arrest. The lawyers at Hoffman & Associates are committed to successfully resolve drunk driving charges for clients in Los Angeles, San Diego and throughout California - regardless of the facts or circumstances of your case.

Our DUI attorneys in San Diego and Los Angeles prepare a strong defense strategy and search to find technical errors, mistakes made by law enforcement, or examples of police misconduct. This type of information about your DUI arrest is then used in negotiations with the prosecutor or at trial. As a result of our preparation and perseverance, we are often able to have drunk driving charges reduced or dismissed. However, when a conviction is unavoidable, we always seek alternatives to jail, such as alcohol treatment and community service.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time...
★★★★★
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
★★★★★
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown
★★★★★
I have been working with Mr. Hoffman for over 11 years. I have seen first hand his genuine dedication to his clients, and how his experience, knowledge and passion have gotten clients fantastic results. He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.
★★★★★
I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him... Manuel Gomez
★★★★★
Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call... Teri A.
★★★★★
Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.
★★★★★
I didn't hire a lawyer for my first DUI... What a mistake! Ronald goes above and beyond with his art and knowledge of custom strategy according to your case. lawyer of the year (every year)... Adam R.
★★★★★
I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
