Orange County's Leader In DUI Defense

Few offenses in America’s criminal justice system (including murder trials) call for greater attorney expertise than cases involving driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.  Properly defending a DUI case, or especially a Vehicular Assault or Homicide case is just as complex as defending any “DNA murder” case because Dues almost always involve scientific evidence (the chemical evidence obtained from you such as blood, breath or urine tests, the results of your physical roadsides tests, or a police medical drug evaluation which are all based in science).


At this critical time you need an experienced trial attorney who has been formally trained in the intricacies of this scientific evidence and who has the trial experience and formal knowledge to refute this evidence which the government holds against you. For these reasons, it is necessary that you ask these questions of any attorney who you will consider hiring:


1. How much of your practice is devoted to defending people who have been accused of a drinking & driving offense (including vehicular assault and homicide)?


The answer to this question should be 100% or close to it.  Unfortunately, many “generalist” attorneys who will take a DUI case are under the mistaken impression that any lawyer can adequately handle one of these complex cases.  This is a recipe for disaster. 


2. Are you a member of the National College of DUI Defense (NIDD)?


The answer to this question should be yes. Unfortunately many “generalist” lawyers will accept DUI cases, but they make no great effort to learn about the fine art and science of defending these very complex cases. In other words, they are a “Jack of all trades, but a master of none.”


The only real service such a generalist can provide is to take your money and plead you out in court. Members of the NIDD are dedicated to pushing the scientific horizons of DUI defense. Hiring any other lawyer is usually a recipe for failure.


3. Are you a graduate of the National College of DUI Defense? 


The answer to this question should be yes. Some lawyers join a group like the NIDD but never make the financial and time sacrifices necessary to complete the necessary training programs the NIDD encourages members to complete. Mr. Reynoso is a graduate of NCDD’s DUI Trial College conducted at Harvard Law School.


4. Do you have any formal training in the administration of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SIFTS)?  These are the physical roadside and eye test that the officer most probably ordered you to perform.


The answer should be yes.  Edgar Reynoso has attended numerous seminars throughout the country in the administration of NHTSA’s Sifts.  Very few lawyers even know that if the officer administered the roadside tests improperly the tests are to be considered invalid and unreliable by the court or the jury.  This in-depth, expert knowledge allows Mr. Reynoso to provide his clients with the best DUI defense when the government has obtained standardized field sobriety test evidence against you. 


5. Has the lawyer ever been trained to use and operate the breath testing machine used in California?


The answer to this question should be an emphatic "YES."  Mistakes frequently occur during breath testing.  These mistakes occur due to operator error or machine error.  Don't let the police and the prosecutor be the only one at your trial who knows how this machine works!


6. The police officer who arrested me for driving under the influence suspected that I was under the influence of drugs (not alcohol). The officer actually seemed more like a doctor - putting me through an extensive medical examination using a stethoscope, a blood-pressure cuff, a pupillometer and other strange medical tests and tools. How will you fight my case against such sophisticated, scientific evidence?


You were examined by a police officer known as a “Drug Recognition Expert” or DRE.  This officer is undoubtedly the most well-trained, and experienced officer in their police department for investigating impaired driving cases.  In fact, due to training costs, and time away from street patrol, many police departments cannot afford to send their best officers to this extensive, sophisticated and expensive training.


However, if the government holds this type of medical evidence against you, then you need an attorney who is trained in DRE.  Again, don’t let the police and the prosecutor be the only ones at your trial who knows the science behind the DRE evidence that is being aimed in your direction!


7. Is the attorney’s rated by the Better Business Bureau?


Yes, Mr. Reynoso has A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).


8. Is the attorney’s rated by AVVO, an attorney rating service?


Yes, Mr. Reynoso has a “Superb 10.0” rating with AVVO.


9. Does the lawyer provide personal attorney is will my case be given to an associate attorney?


The law firm specialize in personal attention. We are not a law firm that focuses on hundreds of tickets or other cases while also handling DUI cases. We  focus on fewer clients with more personalized attention.  In fact, you will even have Mr. Reynoso’s personal cell number so you can reach him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


10. Are your rates competitive?


We will match and beat any quote from another DUI law firm in the Orange County area of equal talent. We would like the opportunity to earn your business.
