Preeminent Bakersfield DUI Defense Attorney

Top-Rated DUI Lawyer in Kern County - Hands Down

When facing a DUI arrest or charge, it is a serious matter and deserves to be handled by a dedicated and aggressive attorney. At Middlebrook & Associates, our primary goal is to present an honest and ethical defense based solely on reliable scientific research and results. Our Bakersfield DUI lawyer, Richard Middlebrook, has handled thousands of DUI cases in this manner with unmatched results that are rooted in an insightful, educated, intelligent and truthful approach.

Any DUI conviction can bring severe penalties, including the suspension of your driver's license, jail time, steep fines, and tremendous increases in insurance rates. Many DUI charges are dismissed or reduced when handled by the right attorney. In most cases, we can appear on your behalf for the entire process, meaning you never need to step inside a courthouse.

Only 10 Days to Save Your License!

When facing a DUI charge, there are several important actions that need to be addressed immediately. The first one is the DMV hearing. This hearing will determine the outcome of your driver's license. You have only 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing. Failure to request that hearing within the first 10 days waives any right to contest the suspension, even if you are clearly not guilty. While this hearing is completely separate from your court case, it is an important part of the DUI defense process.

Protecting Your Rights & Your Reputation in Kern County

A thorough and effective DUI defense begins as soon as you have been arrested. There are often good options in your defense that will not be obvious except to an experienced Bakersfield Kern County DUI defense attorney. When seeking a lawyer, one wants dedication, ability, experience and a track record of success in DUI defense. At our law firm, our team makes your case a priority and is relentless in aggressively fighting all types of charges. When an exceptional DUI defense team is fighting for you, it can minimize the damage to your life and your future.

Contact Mr. Middlebrook if you are looking for an experienced, aggressive and dedicated lawyer to handle your case.
