Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer
At The Law Office of Blackie Burak, I devote my legal practice almost exclusively to DUI / DWI defense in northern and central California. In my nearly 40 years of practicing law, I have gained an exceptional reputation for getting results on behalf of clients charged with drunk driving.

Northern and Central California DUI Defense
There are many excellent DUI attorneys in northern California but few practice in the rural counties. Thanks to my pilot’s license and V-Tail Bonanza, I can fly to you, wherever you are located in northern or central California. I have represented clients in practically every county in California. I charge no additional travel costs for these visits should we decide to work together on your DUI / DWI defense.
I am one of the most frequently quoted and called-upon DUI defense attorneys in the area. Law enforcement officials know my reputation for having evidence suppressed and for aggressively examining police officers in court. Judges know that I am effective, persuasive and prepared when I step into the courtroom. If you want to know who the good lawyers are, ask the court staff (bailiffs and clerks).
Nearly 40 Years of DUI / DWI Defense Experience
At The Law Office of Blackie Burak, I can advise you about any issue related to DWI / DUI defense and help you understand your options. In the nearly 40 years that I’ve been defending clients against DUI charges, the changes in this area of the law have been dramatic. However, I have never let stricter laws get in the way of my clients’ right to a fair defense. I won the first “not guilty” jury verdict in the Bay Area under the new .08 per se law.
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
I receive many referrals from legal professionals throughout the court system. I am the last to advocate drinking and driving. I know how dangerous drunk driving can be, especially to innocent third parties. However, people who are accused often get treated unfairly unless they have strong legal advocacy. I am passionate about protecting the constitutional rights of persons accused of any criminal offense.
