Attorneys William R. Christoph & Nicholas W. Christoph

Experienced and Effective DUI Defense

If your license was taken when you were arrested for DUI, you should have been given a pink temporary license and notice of suspension which starts 30 days from your arrest. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) must be contacted within 10 days of your arrest to delay and challenge any suspension or you lose the right to challenge the suspension. Just setting your DMV hearing extends your driver’s license for about 60 to 90 days or until after the DMV hearing results.

There is no charge for the initial consultation. We service Vista and surrounding areas Oceanside, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, Fallbrook, Encinitas, and all of North County. We can set and handle your DMV hearing and make all the court appearances without you. Call us for your free consultation at 760-670-3885. You can also contact us online to schedule your appointment.

DMV and DUI Criminal Case Representation

Christoph Law Offices will give you an honest appraisal of your case, review all possible defenses, and advise you concerning what can be done to help achieve the best result in your individual case. For over 40 years located across from Vista Courts, we have worked on a daily basis with local judges, prosecutors, court personnel, and law enforcement and can provide the highest level of personal and professional representation.

Nicholas Christoph and William Christoph have represented clients in more than 4,000 DUI cases. Many of our clients have first offenses, or DUIs with priors, accidents, injuries and even death.

We give you an honest, realistic appraisal of your case and provide the highest level of individual professional representation to achieve the best possible result in your case. The Christophs will work with you to assert defenses and negotiate lesser charges or penalties.

Working to Minimize the Impact of These Charges on Your Life

We review your case for all possible defenses and for any facts that may lessen the legal consequences you face. We review the stop, search, seizure, lab testing and drug/alcohol metabolism. It is important to learn about you as a person, how this charge occurred and how it will affect you in the future.

We feel it is important in discussions with the district attorney to personalize the offense. Criminal convictions can stay with you for the rest of your life. A DUI can affect your employment, your career and your future. Potential consequences include license suspension, jail time, large fines and time-consuming education programs. Let the Christoph Law Offices take control and guide your case to the best possible conclusion.
