You have been arrested and charged with DUI or DWI and your future is uncertain.  With the possibility of jail time, loss of driving privileges, and steep fines, you can't afford to gamble on an inexperienced lawyer.  At The Law Office of Blackie Burak, you can feel confident that you will receive aggressive, high quality representation from an honest and experienced professional.

For over thirty years, I have fought for the rights of my clients in drunk driving and criminal proceedings.  While I have gained valuable skills in the criminal law arena, my talents are needed most to represent clients who face drunk driving charges.  Few practicing attorneys have such an extensive and focussed career.  I have an intimate knowledge of the law and the legal system.  In addition to hundreds of DUI and DWI jury trials, I have appeared with clients in thousands of DMV hearings.  I practice all over Central and Northern California and have developed a reputation for an aggressive defense and a high rate of success.

While results are important to my clients, they also appreciate the fact that I offer frank and straightforward advice.   Occasionally, my clients face legal dilemmas that I feel they can handle without retaining a lawyer.  I am the first to help such individuals save money by suggesting that they represent themselves.  Because I have experience in a wide variety of drunk driving cases, I am able to anticipate where such a case is headed and give the client a sense of what to expect.  I take the time to keep all my clients informed as to their options and the consequences and I keep them updated as to the status of their case.

I have been representing client’s accused of crimes since 1972. I was certified by the California State Bar Association as a Criminal Law Specialist in 1983. I am a founding member and past president of the California Deuce Defenders Association, an organization of lawyers devoted to the aggressive defense of persons accused of driving while intoxicated (DUI). I am also a past president of the Criminal Law Section of the Contra Costa County Bar Association.

My office is located in Walnut Creek, but, thanks to my V-Tail Bonanza, I accept cases throughout California. In recent years the focus of my practice has been drunk driving defense. I have clients in almost every county in the state.

My experience includes thousands of DMV hearings and several hundred DUI and DWI Jury trials. I successfully defended the first .08 trial in Solano County Ed Kuwatch, author of California Drunk Driving Law, rates me as one of the best DUI lawyers in northern California.
