About Us

Our experienced staff has been handling DUI cases for over 10 years throughout the Southern California area. We pride ourselves on successfully defending our clients in DUI cases by obtaining a high rate of acquittals or dismissals. Before we recommend pleading to a DUI, we research the facts of the particular case, identify all possible defenses, and chart a course for success. We are with you every step of the way, including dismissal or jury trial. Where most DUI lawyers have a high rate of guilty pleas, we have a high rate of dismissals.  


Attorney Mark A. Hover, is ideal for handling the complex issues in a DUI case. Mr. Hover worked as an engineer for over seventeen years from the age of just nineteen. He has a strong technical and scientific background that enables him to understand the scientific data in every DUI case. This is particularly advantageous to the client because it allows Mr. Hover to clearly understand the technical issues presented in DUI cases and to vigorously cross examine the state's expert. This results in a high success rate.



His abilities to practice law in complex legal matters was recognized by two California Judges who recommended to him that he go to law school to help others. He took their advice and has been practicing for over 10 years. Initially, Mr. Hover handled a broad spectrum of cases including Appeals, Civil, Criminal, Family Law, and Personal Injury. More recently, Mr. Hover has narrowed his practice to include primarily DUI and criminal cases in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange Counties.
