The Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman provide criminal and dui defense in Los Angeles, CA. We offer a free consultation for anyone that is facing DUI or criminal charges. Call today to schedule your free initial consultation.

Firm Overview

We work closely with our clients to expand their opportunities for a favorable result and work diligently to protect them from punishment whenever possible. In some cases, that means presenting a strong defense at trial. In many cases, we protect our clients by finding a way to keep their case out of the criminal justice system altogether through diversion or treatment alternatives.

With past experience as a prosecutor, attorney Daniel Perlman understands what the district attorney needs to see to give the defendant a break or to back away from serious felony charges. It is usually up to the defense to find a solution that both sides can live with whenever a trial on the merits would be more risk to you than it is worth. His creativity in finding those solutions can give you a powerful advantage.

For a free initial consultation about your options for resolving a Los Angeles DUI charge, contact us at the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman in Los Angeles online or call 213-514-8324 or 213-514-8324. Mr. Perlman will determine the right defense strategy based on the facts of your specific case. We handle all types of DUI cases, including:

First-offense DUI: Contrary to the rumor mill, nearly 80 percent of our first offender clients' cases are resolved without a DUI conviction.

Underage DUI: Alleged juvenile DUI offenders face unique challenges when facing such charges. We are prepared to respond to those challenges.

Felony DUI: These are serious charges that require urgent attention. Felony charges include DUI causing an injury or a fourth offense within 10 years.

DUI involving drugs, whether prescription drugs or banned substances ("street drugs"), carries the same penalties as DUI involving alcohol.

Multiple DUI charges will result in higher penalties based on how many times you have been previously convicted. We are often successful in minimizing statutory jail sentences by seeking treatment options.

DUI involving an accident causing property damage, injury and/or death requires a knowledgeable, experienced defense attorney. This is as serious as it gets, involving the possibility of state prison, so it is important to hire a diligent and skilled lawyer.

Boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs can have the same negative consequences as driving a vehicle while intoxicated.

DMV hearing: Act promptly to protect your driving privileges. We must request your hearing within 10 days of your release or your license will be automatically suspended.
