Riverside DUI Defense Attorney

DUI’s are a political crime. The goal is to convict people — even good people — that have probably never been arrested before in their life.

I have represented police officers, firemen, ambulance drivers, teachers, clients in almost every walk of life and these people are terrified now that they find themselves being under the weight of the government and the prosecutor who are trying to convict them of a crime. And that’s why I feel these people need my expertise to help them and defend them in these cases.

I’m attorney Manuel Barba. I practice DUI defense exclusively. I am a lawyer scientist designated by the American Chemical Society, Chemistry and Law Division. I’ve done a lot of training with regard to breath testing, DUI investigation, chemical testing, how blood is analyzed: so, the science behind the DUI - that’s where my expertise lies and that’s why I only do DUI defense.

I find it an honor to represent my clients who are the underdog in these cases because the government has a lot of power. So I become the buffer between the government and my client.

The Law Offices of Manuel J. Barba has a near perfect record of getting the DUI charge dismissed.


“When I got arrested that evening it was bewildering to me because I hadn’t done anything wrong. As far as I know I was not intoxicated.”

“I was kind of wandering around in the dark not knowing which direction to go and Manuel Barba was the one to turn on the lights and showed me the right way.”


“The police got me and I felt like no way. I never had not even a ticket for speeding.”

“That he was like my father with me. Protecting me. And helping me when no one does.”


“I truly believe this can happen to anyone. I don’t know where I’d be without the help of Manuel Barba.”

"When we first take a case the most important thing that I want to find out is my client’s story of what happened. I want to find out who that person is because this is the person that we’re going to fight for, to represent them and make sure their rights are defended, and to force the government to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt." — Manuel J. Barba

Should you hire an attorney?

When arrested for a DUI, you have two choices: 1) do nothing and your license will be suspended and you will be convicted of DUI; or, 2) do something, meaning hire an expert DUI defense lawyer to represent you and your chances of not getting convicted of DUI and losing your license increase greatly.

When hiring a lawyer to represent you in your DUI case, be sure to hire an expert in DUI defense. There are many lawyers that take every different kind of case that walks in the door, but they are not experts in any particular kind of case, especially defending a DUI case.

Should you hire a DUI specialist?

Keep in mind that even if an attorney works in criminal defense, he or she is not necessarily qualified to handle a DUI defense case.
