Orange County DUI Lawyers
Were you arrested for a DUI in Orange County? Our website has valuable information about DUI charges anywhere in OC. You can also contact our Orange County DUI Lawyers for a free consultation about the specifics of your case. There are also actions you should be taking now to help your case.
It’s likely if you are on this page that you were contacted by the police somewhere in Orange County. It could have been that they responded to an accident, or noticed some violation of the law, and decided to investigate further.
If you smelled like alcohol, or admitted to drinking, the police will typically conduct field sobriety tests, and then a breath or a blood test, and you will be arrested and taken to jail.
Luckily, jail is the worst part of this entire ordeal, usually. But they probably took your driver’s license away, and gave you a 30 day pink temporary license, along with a date to show up in Orange County Superior Court.
It’s important to know that you or an attorney have to contact the DMV office of driver safety in Orange within 10 days of your arrest. Otherwise, you could be left without a license once your temporary expires, and could suffer a suspension. A DMV hearing prevents that.
What am I facing from my DUI arrest? Can your Orange County DUI Lawyers help?
A DUI in Orange County can range in seriousness, from misdemeanor DUI to felony DUI. The punishment depends on the circumstances of the case, including:
- Whether there was injury to another person as the result of a DUI with an accident;
- High Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) (a .15% or higher)
- Whether there was speeding while DUI or driving recklessly;
- Whether there is property damage to another car or object;
- Whether or not there were children or minors in the car when the allegations of DUI occurred; and
- Whether there are any prior DUIs within 10 years.
Note that even in the best of situations, DUI is seen as a contemptible crime by everyone in the justice system. No judge wants to make it even suggested that they are anything but tough on DUI cases. All DUI prosecutors in Orange County are trained and truly believe that they should not give DUI cases any special treatment. Police do not simply let someone go with a DUI case, and political pressure from MADD and other groups keep the pressure high on DUI cases. Every year the law changes to make the laws more harsh for DUI in California. No one in Orange County, except the Orange County DUI Lawyers that make it their profession to speak up for the person arrested of DUI, is interested in cutting anyone a break.
What about my license? Can Orange County DUI Lawyers help keep me driving?
In a separate proceeding, the DMV, who has jurisdiction over your driving privileges, will automatically suspend your license, if you do not request a DMV hearing within 10 days.
Requesting a hearing will cause a hearing date to be set and your driving privilege to be extended by months. If you win the hearing, then you get your license back with no suspension or restricted license needed. If you lose, then there is a hard suspension with no driving, plus a restricted license to drive to work or school.
