Orange County DUI Defense

DUI Attorney in Orange County, CA

If you have been arrested for DUI in Orange County, the first thing you should do is speak with a knowledgeable attorney who has a proven track record of successfully representing past DUI clients. Speaking with an experienced DUI defense lawyer is the first step in building a strong case and solid defense. By working with a DUI attorney, you can review your case and question the facts surrounding your individual situation. A talented lawyer may be able to find law enforcement or test result errors that will aid in your defense.

In some cases, law enforcement errors or mistakes can lead to the reduction or dismissal of a person’s criminal charges. Common errors made by law enforcement include:

  • Police Officers not having sufficient Probable Cause: Before law enforcement officials can make a DUI traffic stop, they must have sufficient probable cause as defined in the California Penal Code §836(a). If law enforcement officials do not have sufficient probable cause, they cannot legally make the DUI traffic stop.
  • Failure to Read Miranda Rights: In some cases, a police officer may fail to read a driver his/her Miranda Rights before placing the person under arrest. Miranda Rights are read to inform the person of his/her right to remain silent, right to an attorney, and right to have an attorney appointed to him/her. If the officer does not read the driver his/her Miranda Rights, anything the driver said before his/her arrest may not be admissible in court.
  • Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test Results: After a person is suspected of drunk driving, he/she may be asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests for the police officer. It is up to the police officer to determine if the person has passed or failed his/her field sobriety tests. The police officer must closely monitor the person’s balance, coordination, and motor skills while the person performs the test. It is believed that if a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he/she will have poor coordination. However, a person can perform poorly during the field sobriety tests for many reasons other than being intoxicated. Some of these reasons may include: slippery road conditions, poor lighting, poor instructions, and medical conditions that impair the person’s coordination.
