Sometimes the most innocent person may make a terrible mistake and find themselves charged with a DUI offense. Unfortunately, DUI, or driving under the influence, is a most common offense, yet it is also one of the most complicated, intricate and difficult to defend against – especially in California. It is in your best interest to assert your rights immediately and to get the best and most experienced DUI attorney Pasadena has: Mark Khalaf.

Mark Khalaf is an experienced criminal defense attorney with a specialty in DUI. Mark was born and raised in Pasadena, still resides there, and practices law there as well. He has an intricate familiarity with the Pasadena and Los Angeles court systems and has developed a valuable working relationship with the district attorney’s office.

This experience and knowledge is of tremendous benefit as Mark defends his clients because it provides him with the practical background and experience necessary to experience the greater perspective.

DUI’s are often a result of successfully proving various categories of evidence against the accused, including driving patterns, physical signs of driver impairment, field sobriety test results, and chemical test results. If any of these aspects are successfully challenged, the case may deteriorate. Mark Khalaf knows how to successfully pursue the investigation and how to obtain a dismissal or other beneficial result, including a reduced charge.

A successful drunk driving defense requires specialized knowledge and skills. For example, it is sometimes possible to get the client’s drivers license suspension or revocation delayed until the resolution of the DMV issue. This will allow the client to drive to work or school or to go to essential appointments.
