DUI Overview in Orange County
Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer
In the state of California, DUI (driving under the influence) is a criminal
offense that involves serious legal consequences. The mistake that too
many people make after being charged with DUI is taking their charges
lightly. When a person has been charged with DUI, he/she needs to be aware
that a conviction can lead to life altering legal consequences such as
monetary fines, jail time, and probation. Additionally, a person may lose
his/her driving privileges for a set period of time.
With the legal penalties being so severe, it is never in a person’s
best interest to make light of their DUI charges. Instead, people who
have been charged with DUI need to place every effort into their defense,
and that process begins with hiring the right DUI defense attorney. At
