Julia E. Simmons

About me

I am a licensed trial attorney in both California and Washington dedicated to serious automotive legal issues including DUIs, specifically, 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs and Felony DUIs. I also do medical DMV hearings, refusal hearings  lack of skill, negligent operator due to too many DMV points, DMV wrongful death actions, and civil recovery for automotive injury claims. I also handle felony and misdemeanor motions for expungement.

I have spent years in the DUI industry and have numerous contacts within the DMV system.

 I fight aggressively on your behalf while making sure I maintain weekly contact with everyone of my clients. I promise that everything that can be done for your case, will be done.
