If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in California, you need an experienced lawyer looking out for you. In addition to possible jail time and fines, you can lose your driving privileges, be saddled with increased insurance premiums and maybe even lose your job if you are convicted.
At The Law Office of Marc A. Legget, I have decades of experience practicing law in the courts of Southern California. I handle each and every case myself, providing my clients with the personal attention they deserve and the skilled representation they need to protect their rights.

What Can I Do For You?
I handle all aspects of drunk driving defense, including:
- Misdemeanor DUI
- Felony DUI
- Hit and run
I work hard for my clients by investigating the events surrounding their arrest and talking to the district attorney on their behalf. While I strive to prevent your case from ever being filed, if it goes to trial, you can rest easy with my extensive trial experience on your side. I will never accept a deal that is not in your best interest.
You Must Act Quickly to Protect Your Driver’s License
It is important to get me involved early after your arrest. You have 10 days from the time of your arrest to file a request for a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you fail to do this, the interim driver’s license you received from the arresting agency will allow you to drive for 30 days only. After 30 days, your license, along with your privilege to drive will be suspended.
Once your suspension goes into effect for a first DUI offense, you will have to serve a minimum of 30 days of your suspension and register for an alcohol counseling program to be eligible for a five month restricted driver’s license. A restricted license will allow you to drive to work and to your alcohol classes only.
