Every year approximately 200,000 people find themselves arrested on a DUI-related offense in California. A DUI arrest can result from something as simple as driving after drinking a couple of glasses of wine to the unintended but foreseeable consequence of killing someone when driving under the influence, which can result in the serious charge of second-degree murder. Even a first-time DUI arrest, with a blood alcohol level at or even below .08%, can have a serious impact on your life, including the suspension of your license to drive, DMV points, probation, fines and fees, among other consequences. Needless to say, the financial consequences of even the first-time DUI conviction hits even harder when your automobile insurance renews.

The goal of any DUI defense is to get the charges dismissed or reduced. While that is not always possible, especially when the prosecution has a strong case, a good defense can often mitigate the impact on sentencing. The prosecution always wants to throw the full weight of the law on the defendant and without a good defense that is exactly what will happen...and in short order. If you have been arrested for any DUI-related offense, you need an experienced defense attorney on your side.

An arrest for DUI has immediate consequences as your license to drive is suspended and you are given a temporary 30-day license. Therefore, the most important step you can take after getting arrested for a DUI is finding the right attorney. The California DUI laws are confusing and at times indecipherable. If that is not enough, there are two components to a DUI arrest: the criminal charge and an administrative hearing. The window of time to challenge the suspension of your driver license in the administrative hearing is only ten days! You cannot waste time and you should not step into this potential minefield without the help and advice of an experienced Orange County DUI attorney.
