Helping Pilots Facing DUI Or Other Alcohol/Drug-Related Charges

Pilots facing DUI convictions or accused of alcohol or drug abuse/dependence face aggressive FAA investigation, and often are at risk of losing their ability to fly. It is never too early to contact me when you are facing this situation, as acting on your behalf early in the process allows me to create a stronger criminal defense strategy and protect your interests as both a citizen and a pilot.

I help clients in La Jolla, Del Mar and throughout the San Diego area and will consult with criminal defense attorneys throughout California who are not pilots to help you navigate the criminal system and protect your flying privileges.

Don’t compromise your license and medical certification by working with a criminal defense attorney who doesn’t understand the processes involved in FAA reviews.

If your driving license is canceled, suspended or revoked because of a DUI, you are required to report this to the FAA. If you are charged with a DUI (with or without license restrictions), this incident must be reported to the FAA separately. Both reports must be done separately, and both have different requirements and deadlines.

I will guide you through both this process and the criminal defense process, working on these issues in tandem. I will prepare these reports with you, making sure every detail is covered so you can be confident that everything that can be done is accomplished to help you.

There Is No Time To Lose

As an aviation lawyer and a pilot myself, I have an intimate understanding of how the criminal justice system can wreak havoc on a pilot’s career. Get in touch with my office today by calling 858-401-9882 and protect your livelihood.
