Santa Rosa DUI Attorney

My greatest source of business is referrals from former clients.

My clients are grateful for my dedication to their case and refer my services to friends and family on a regular basis.

Client testimonials and referrals are by far my greatest source of pride and continuing business.

No matter what crime or drinking-related violation you have been charged with, I can defend your rights and represent you in California. An experienced and aggressive trial lawyer can defend your case and fight for your vindication against the very toughest charges.

I am attorney Steven Taxman, and I have been representing people charged with all degrees of crimes for more than 20 years. My practice in Santa Rosa is focused on minimizing the potentially catastrophic consequences of criminal charges that could devastate your family, career, future job opportunities and finances.

A DUI charge, for instance, might not seem like the end of the world. With the right legal representation, it isn't. But the ramifications of conviction can be devastating:

  • Car insurance premiums will sky rocket.
  • Do you drive for a living? You are likely to lose your job.
  • Getting a job, especially in a tough economy, is nearly impossible.
  • Employers can see a DUI conviction on your permanent record in a background check.
  • Your driver's license will be suspended for at least four months, and in some cases one year without possibility for reinstatement, in addition to the steep fines, possible jail time and chemical dependency program enrollment you face.

If you have been arrested for DUI, don't take it sitting down!

I can help you fight the charges and protect your driving privileges. I will stand up for your rights! As a Santa Rosa DUI lawyer and criminal defense lawyer, I defend people arrested across Sonoma County, Napa Valley, Marin County, San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area.

Drunk driving arrest and license suspension are serious. From the date of your arrest, you have 10 calendar days to schedule a DMV hearing to protect your license. The onus is on the driver. If you do not schedule a hearing in time, license suspension is automatic. Contact me as soon as possible to minimize these damaging consequences and guide you through the process.

Sonoma County Criminal Defense Lawyer

I provide intelligent and practical defense, and I thoroughly examine each case. I am experienced at all levels of court, and I can appeal DMV decisions to higher courts such as California Superior Court and trial court decisions to the Court of Appeal. I fight to protect you constitutional rights and your fair treatment under the law.

Don't be taken advantage of by the process. You have options, and I will work to provide you with the most intelligent defense possible.

Call the Law Offices of Steven Taxman today at 707-304-5153 or contact me by email to discuss the details of your unique situation. Referrals from satisfied clients are my greatest source of new business.

I also have broad experience in several other legal areas, including general litigation, personal injury, landlord/tenant work, professional licensing, appeals and more.
