ORANGE COUNTY DUI ATTORNEYS

Choosing an Orange County DUI Lawyer can be a difficult and complicated task for anyone; but for those who hold a Professional License and who arrested for DUI are faced with a number of additional complications that can have a dramatic affect on not only the outcome of their case; but also their ability to earn a living.

This site focuses on those who are charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs who also hold a Professional License; but it also focuses on the law behind a drunk driving charge. We have a companion website that deals with the types of Orange County DUI Discovery or evidence one should expect to obtain in connection with a DUI charge in Southern California. 

The tough decisions facing a person charged with driving under the influence can be overwhelming; however, they can be easier to confront when you are a client of an experienced, reputable and well-known Orange County DUI Defense firm that is familiar with how the local police departments conduct Driving Under the Influence Investigations and how the local District Attorneys prosecute the crime of DUI and who know how to "navigate" the respective professional board inquiry set forth in motion by the virtue of your arrest.  

One may ask: "How does the Board know of the DUI charge if I have not reported it to the respective Board?" The California Department of Justice is known to forward the record of the arrest to the respective Board within days or weeks of the charge of driving under the influence. You need a lawyer that is familiar with these inquiries and how to handle them. The DUI Attorneys of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons is one of only a few DUI defense firms that handles these inquiries in addition to the defense of the DUI charge: a rare find: the facts of the DUI case arerelevant and material to the Board's inquiry.

If you hold a professional license and are charged with driving under the influence in Orange County, you will need an experienced DUI Attorney to review all of the evidence that the prosecution intends to use against you, that the California DMV will use against you to suspend or revoke your driving privileges, and the respective Board's inquiry into the matter and its resolution prior to determining the punishment for the DUI, not limited to the loss of one's professional license.

Even if you don't hold a professional license, if you are charged with DUI in Orange County or anywhere in Southern California for that matter, you need results. The DUI Defense Attorneys of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons get great results because they are "Orange County's Recognized Leaders in DUI Defense".

YOUR ORANGE COUNTY DUI ATTORNEY MUST KNOW THE LAW AND THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE DEFENSE OF DUI


In choosing the best 
Orange County driving under the influence (DUI) Lawyer, it is absolutely imperative that you know whether the attorney or any of the DUI Lawyers in the firm has received specialized training in the defense of driving under the influence (DUI) cases. Such training would include whether the DUI attorney is qualified in the Administration of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) under the guidelines set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Better yet, that he/she has also qualified as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor under the guidelines set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Such training would also include training on the administration of breath testing, and how the breath test devices are maintained and calibrated. Knowledge of breath testing is an absolute must for any DUI Defense attorney representing you against driving under the influence charges in Orange County or anywhere in Southern California or throughout the entire State of California.

The defense of driving under the influence (DUI) cases is a very specialized discipline of criminal defense. Not all criminal defense lawyers are DUI defense lawyers. The defense of driving under the influence (DUI) cases involves a thorough understanding of the complex issues of science and law associated with the defense of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge. 

A good DUI defense lawyer must understand the science behind the science of DUI. In choosing the best Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer, you should be sure that he/she is up-to-date on the trends in the scientific literature associated with a charge of driving under the influence. 

It is important to know whether the DUI defense attorney keeps up with DUI case law. Barry T. Simons is the co-author of the two-volume treatise entitled: California Drunk Driving Law. The treatise is often considered "The Bible of DUI Defense" in 
California by lawyers and judges throughout the State of California
. Each of the four Defense Attorneys of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons is a Contributing Editors to the treatise, which is published twice annually.

Let's not kid ourselves, knowing the law is half the battle in the defense of a DUI charge. Knowing the science is the other half, because if you don’t know the science behind the defense of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge, how can you then expect to go toe-to-toe with the prosecution’s expert? The DUI Defense Attorneys of the Law Office know the science and the law—there is no need to look any further than the DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons for your DUI Defense needs as they are Orange County's "Best" or "Top-Rated" DUI Defense firm.

Knowing the law could mean the difference between a DUI conviction and a dismissal through a Motion to Suppress and/or some other pretrial motion. A Motion to Suppress can be one of the most effective ways to win a DUI case without having to actually proceed to trial. In the event your Motion to Suppress is granted, the DUI charges will likely be dismissed.
