Welcome to the Sacramento DUI Defense website! 

Denis H. White, Jr.

Greater Sacramento's DUI Defender

Very few attorneys really practice solely DUI defense, it’s just a small part of what they do. DUI Defense is the only thing our office engages in. What sets us apart from other DUI attorneys is the specialized training and continuing education from seminars we attend throughout the year.

Free Updates & Support: You Need It, We Gladly Provide It.

When you retain our office you will be working directly with us. At our office we subpoena all the records that we believe the District Attorney would need to prove their case against you and that DMV would need to take your license. That often includes videos, breath testing records, etc.  We go way beyond just ordering police reports!

Continuing Education: The Proof is in the Pudding

Being a general criminal defense attorney simply isn’t enough. By taking DUI specific continuing education courses, we have honed our defense skills like master craftmen. We listen to our clients specific situations and apply our training to each step of the process.

California DUI Lawyers Association

This organization provides a forum for members to share specific information about DMV & Court issues, along with new cases relevant to our practices.

The Scientific Truth

Course on machines used for testing and the pharmacology of Alcohol (ETOH) Marijuana and Benzodiazepines in DUI cases, taught by Justin McShane, Esq. & Jimmy Valentine PhD.

Preliminary Alcohol Screening Device (PAS)

Training on the use and calibration of the breath machine that most law enforcement agencies use to test people’s breath for alcohol at the scene. This is not the evidentiary machine and is only supposed to be used to check for the presence of alcohol.

Three Courses on Inspecting Blood Ethanol Chromatagrams

The courses deal with examining the actual records for alcohol blood analysis in alcohol related cases.

POST Breath Testing Certification

Certification of the 12 hour course presented at Ventura College on 11/14/08. The class was presented to train law enforcement officers working throughout CA. I was the only defense attorney in attendance.

DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Certification

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) & International Association of Chief of Police (IACP) conducted this course in Oakland through LaPier & Associates on 10-2-2009 to 10-4-2009.

Denis was recommended to me by a close friend who works in law enforcement. His exact words were, ‘If I was arrested for a DUI, this is the lawyer I would hire. 

Client Review #1

Denis was always available when I needed him, and he never took longer than a day to respond to my calls/emails. He left no stone unturned when investigating the facts of my case and I could tell he read over the police reports with a fine toothed comb. He truly took the time to exhaust all avenues in helping me avoid a DUI conviction. Denis and his staff proved to be very knowledgeable in DUI law, and I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t hire his law firm for my DUI defense.


With the help of Denis I was able to beat the DMV hearing and keep my license. The criminal hearing has not taken place as the DA has not filed charges yet. But when they do I am sure Denis will be there to help me through the process. I would definitely recommend Denis to anyone who is currently contemplating hiring an attorney to help fight a DUI case.

Client Review #2

I literally thought I was looking at Serious jail time because of the circumstances of my case and he gave me a lot of really good suggestions, which I followed and ultimately I just got community service and a fine. It could have, and probably should have been way worse. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and was always available to answer questions. He went above and beyond what I expected in an attorney… He is honest, sometimes brutally so, but he got the job done… He is worth every penny and had fair pricing.

Client Review #2

…he even helped me in the following situation… I took the time off of work and sat at the DMV through the long, long wait that we all know far too well. Upon finally being called to the counter, I was informed that I was ineligible to receive my license for one more day– I immediately called Denis. Denis picked up right away, I handed the phone to the DMV employee, and Denis successfully informed them that they were incorrect (he knew the law far better than them, obviously)… Without Denis, I would have had to waste another three hours of time that I didn’t have on have the following day. This is a perfect example of the way Denis handles all of his clients– with care, empathy and most importantly, professionalism.

I know how devastating it feels when you or your loved one is arrested for a DUI… Finding a good attorney to help you navigate the legal system feels daunting, but it is essential and well worth the cost…. Not only is Denis a skilled attorney with expertise in this field, but he is also an honest and compassionate human being.
Denis is second to none for DUI defense! My first experience with Denis unfolded 17 years ago when I was in my 20’s…. His expertise, skills and determination to provide me with the best possible defense kept my life from taking a terrible turn. He spent a lot of time getting to know me and my case, then moved forward with his plan, ultimately ending in victory… Last year, I needed his expertise once again, and once again he made all the difference in the world! There is no one I trust more when it comes to legal defense.

Client Review #5

I found Mr. White via an internet search. Once I read his rave reviews, I felt I no longer needed to search further… He is a kind man, above all, and under normal circumstances I would call him a friend…My error was committed with such bad decision-making .My decision to hire you was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
