Los Angeles Aggravated DUI Lawyers

Helping Clients Throughout LA County

Being charged with a DUI can be a scary experience. From the moment you are pulled over, law enforcement are looking to make a case against you and ensure you face the maximum penalty of the law. In some cases, aggravating factors can be added to your charges to make the consequences worse. If this happened to you, call the Los Angeles aggravated DUI lawyers at Gibbons & Gibbons to schedule a free consultation and get started planning your defense.

Any time a person is caught driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) reading of more than .08 percent, they can be charged with DUI, leading to criminal penalties of a license suspension of 6 months, mandatory treatment programs, and possible vehicle confiscation. However, if there are aggravating factors involved, sentencing can be worse.
