Serious problems require serious solutions. Whether you are facing criminal charges, specifically a DUI charge or must resolve a civil matter, the legal advocate you choose will have a big impact on the outcome of your situation. I am Dick Margarita, a Sacramento criminal defense, civil litigation and DUI attorney who has been providing effective legal advice and DUI representation for more than 20 years. Two decades of real world experience in the legal minefields that encompass criminal (including DUIs) and civil cases provide unique perspectives and detailed investigative expertise in your legal matters.
I represent clients who have a diverse range of legal needs, focusing on DUIs in the Sacramento area, and throughout Central and Northern California, the San Joaquin Valley and the Bay Area.
Personalized Attention to Help Resolve Your Legal Matters
By focusing exclusively on criminal defense, more specifically DUIs and a limited area of civil litigation, I am able to ensure that every one of my clients receives the personalized attention that he or she expects and deserves. I work hard to protect people's rights in criminal matters, including all drug crimes, marijuana offenses, DUI, traffic offenses, white collar crimes, and professional license violations and DEA registrant abuses by governmental authorities.
My civil litigation practice encompasses plaintiff and defense cases involving contract disputes, state and federal employment law matters, and restraining orders.
You Can Count On My More Than 30 Years of Public Service Experience
In addition to helping people as a litigation attorney, I have worked in the public service sector for more than 30 years, including positions in:
- The FBI
- The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), as a Senior Special Agent
- The Sacramento County District Attorney's Office, as a Deputy District Attorney
- California State University, Sacramento, as an Adjunct Professor in the Criminal Justice Department
- The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District, as General Counsel
Now working as a DUI lawyer in private practice, I use my insight and experience in police procedures and culture, as well as DUI prosecution strategies, to my clients' advantage. I help develop creative solutions and employ powerful courtroom techniques to get results in both criminal (DUI) and civil court. My unique prior law enforcement experience provides a unique basis from which to vigorously advocate for my clients.
