Why Do I Need An Experienced DUI Lawyer?

A DUI charge can result in thousands of dollars in fines, the loss of your license, and even your freedom. A DUI charge also affects your job, your career, your educational opportunities and even a security clearance. 

Defending DUI Charges

We aggressively defend DUI charges in criminal court and at DMV hearings; we specialize in developing a defense to DUI charges.

By law, a police officer must have probable cause to conduct a traffic stop. If they lacked probable cause for pulling you over, then the stop is unlawful and your arrest and any evidence collected after the stop could be inadmissible in court. Also, if a police officer improperly administered a roadside sobriety tests or mishandled a blood or other chemical tests, such as a urine sample, then this evidence can be excluded in court.

A variety of legal options are on your side and we will assess which approach will be most effective for you.

There are many different types of DUIs in California to include but not limited to:

  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Multiple DUI charges
  • Felony or Aggravated DUI
  • DMV Hearings
  • Underage DUI
  • Driving Under the Influence of Drugs

Mr. McMurray was my lawyer when I was arrested by the SB County Sheriff’s department. I won’t go into details, but I was in serious trouble… Mr. McMurray was truthful and helpful through the entire process. I ended up avoiding jail time all together and I haven’t looked back since.  I can happily say he got me a second chance.


I couldn’t recommend Elvia highly enough. When the legal system left me hurt and confused, she fought fiercely and got me results.

Elvia believes in what she does and her passion shines through in her work. She couldn’t have done a better job for me and I know she’ll fight just as successfully for you.


I met Mr. McMurray when I most needed help. He was not only knowledgeable and honest about my case, but most importantly he cared about my case. His staff is very friendly and attentive. I’ve had other attorneys that would not return my calls so I was glad to find his law office, as they were always on top of my case.


In a field that many people don’t know much about until circumstances force them to seek legal help, Elvia looks out for her client’s interests above her own. She responded quickly to my concerns and explained everything to me in a manner which I understood. Elvia is trustworthy and honest. I highly recommend Elvia!
