Temecula Courthouse Information

Find a DUI Defense Lawyer in Riverside County

The Temecula Courthouse

41002 County Center Drive #100

Temecula, CA

All DUI cases in and around Temecula, California are handled at the
Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.

Just because you are arrested for DUI with blood alcohol test results that appear to be beyond the legal limit does not mean you should give up and plead guilty. With legal help from a skilled Temecula DUI defense attorney, you do have a chance of beating your DUI charge completely or of receiving lesser penalties. If you plead guilty or no contest to charges of driving under the influence without a strong fight, you may face the following penalties:

  • Driver's license suspension
  • High DUI fines and fees
  • Higher auto insurance rates
  • Loss of income
  • A DUI criminal record
  • Incarceration in county jail

Many accused DUI offenders simply go with the flow and do not exercise their right to retain a specialized DUI attorney. While opting for legal representation from an appointed Public Defender may seem viable, the dedication, experience and personal attention received from a qualified Riverside DUI lawyer could make all the difference.

When charged with driving under the influence there are two defense cases you must contend with: the DUI criminal case and DMV administrative hearing.  Once you are charged with DUI, your court appearance citation starts the criminal case rolling. If you were stopped for drunk driving in Temecula, CA your case hearing will be at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.
