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".

Remember, in this digital age your record will remain with you for your entire life.  What may seem like a small fine and some classes today may have a devastating impact on your job, your career and your future after all the dust settles and the impact of that conviction becomes more apparent.
