California Criminal Charge Attorney

Criminal charges need to be taken very seriously, as they can have a lasting impact on many aspects of your life. If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor in California, it is essential that you seek qualified legal representation from an experienced lawyer.

We at the Law Offices of William Ausman pride ourselves on offering a full range of services to clients in San Luis Obispo, Atascadero and the surrounding areas who are dealing with driver’s license issues. Since our firm’s founding in 1998, we have put our clients’ needs and goals at the forefront of every case. We understand how vital driving is to our clients’ everyday lives. We work to see that either your driver’s license is retained whenever possible or the suspension time is limited.
