DUI & Misdemeanor Defense


The attorneys at McElfish Law Firm will fight to protect your rights and prevent a DUI conviction from going on your criminal record. The consequences for even a first time DUI arrest can be severe.

We know what the prosecution and the DMV’s weaknesses often are and work aggressively to uncover them. We provide a comprehensive defense by attacking all forms of evidence. Our vigorous approach to defending DUIs often reveals that the
