Say Goodbye to Your DUI

Jay Divett

The educational topic of PICA’s  July webinar is, Say Goodbye to Your DUI, being taught by Attorney, James “Jay” Devitt.  He will be covering the laws pertaining to DUI’s, how field sobriety tests can be invalid and what to expect in court.

Mr. Devitt attended Western State University College of Law in Fullerton, CA, where he made the Dean’s List, the Honor Roll, and was also published in Law Review. He passed the California Bar exam on his first attempt.

He has been practicing law in Southern California for more than 24 years. During law school he clerked for the attorneys that defended John DeLoren and worked on the “Falcon and the Snowman” and “Billionaire Boys Club” cases which were later made into movies.

For the last 20 years his practice has been largely consisting of Criminal Defense. His motto is – “A good attorney knows the Law; a great attorney knows the Judge, but I know both.” Mr Devitt is also an acknowledged expert on sentencing alternatives which has resulted in sentences for his clients ranging from private jails, house arrest to work furlough. He is available for his clients 24/7/365.
