Orange County DUI Lawyer
Representation for Criminal Case & DMV Hearing
In the state of California, it is illegal for people to drive while impaired by drugs and/or alcohol. It is also illegal for people to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. If a person commits either of these offenses, he/she can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) by law enforcement. Once a person is charged with DUI, he/she faces numerous life-altering legal consequences if he/she is convicted.
Some of these legal consequences include:
- Jail time
- Driver’s license suspension
- Community service
- DUI school
- Vehicle impoundment
- Interlock devices
These legal consequences can adversely impact a person’s quality of life for years to come. For this reason, it is usually beneficial for a person to retain the services of a skilled Orange County DUI attorney once he/she has been arrested for drunk driving.
DMV Administrative Per Se Hearing
Aside from facing criminal penalties, motorists charged for DUI will also face a possible suspension or revocation of their driver's license. Driver's license penalties are handled in proceedings that are separate from criminal court actions. These proceedings are known as administrative per se hearings, and are overseen by a Hearing Officer from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Under California law,drivers have 10 days from the arrest date to request a DMV hearing to protect their driving privileges. Our attorneys are prepared to represent clients during both their criminal court DUI case and their DMV hearing.
