Huntington Beach DUI Attorney

 

Huntington Beach DUI

 

The Reynoso Law Firm is recognized as being among the top driving under the influence (DUI) defense lawyers in California. We represent clients accused of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) or driving with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit (DUI) in Huntington Beach. The Orange County Superior Courts handling HB DUI criminal cases are located in Westminster, Santa Ana and Newport Beach. The bulk of Huntington Beach DUI cases end up at the Westminster Courthouse.

 

A person arrested for driving under the influence or driving with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit in Huntington Beach will have to hire an attorney who will appear at one of the Orange County Superior Courts. In addition, a person arrested for a DUI in Huntington Beach will have a separate California DMV license suspension action initiated by the DMV for driving with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit . This second DUI case will be before the California Department of Motor Vehicles' Driver Safety Office located in the City of Orange. The DUI criminal case is not directly related to the California Department of Motor Vehicles case.

 

100% of our practice is DUI defense.† Of the DUI cases handled by the firm, 99% of those are situated in Orange County.† Mr. Reynoso specializes in DUI defense and is present member of professional organizations whose focus is related to this practice area, including the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), and California DUI Lawyers Association (CDLA).†

 

Huntington Beach DUI arrests will almost always initiate two separate cases. The first case is the Orange County criminal DUI criminal case which will be prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorney's office at the Superior Court.† The District Attorney will usually charge a person arrested for DUI with at least two separate criminal violations following a DUI arrest.†

 

The first DUI charge is for driving under the influence of alcohol, medication or drugs in violation of California Vehicle Code section 23152, subdivision (a). The second DUI charge is for driving with a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08 percent or greater in violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152, subdivision (b). If a DUI arrest involved an accident resulting in an injury to a person other than the individual arrested for DUI, a more serious felony DUI will be charged in violation of California Vehicle Code section 23153, subdivision (a) and California Vehicle Code section 23153, subdivision (b).

 

The second DUI case is a California Department of Motor Vehicles Administrative Per Se (APS) case, in which the person arrested for DUI is at risk of having his or her privilege to drive suspended. Drivers arrested for DUI driving with a blood alcohol concentration at or above the legal limit of .08% or higher in California have only 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV administrative per se (APS) hearing. If a DMV hearing is not requested within ten (10) days of the DUI arrest, any California driver's license will automatically be suspended thirty (30) days from the date of the arrest for a minimum period of four (4) months. If the person arrested in Orange County for DUI has an out of state driver license, the privilege of that person to drive within the State of California will be suspended indefinitely thirty (30) days from the date of the arrest and will not be restored until a California DUI school is completed. Additionally, a driving suspension imposed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles for a DUI will usually have an effect on the out of state driver's license in their home state.

 

California DMV hearings are technical and should only be handled by a lawyer with extensive experience handling California DUI and California DMV cases. To suspend a driver's license, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the police had reasonable cause to believe a violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152 or Section 23153 was committed, that the DUI arrest was lawful, and that the driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or greater. California DMV administrative hearings can be won, but usually only by an attorney with specialized knowledge of the hearing process, the type of evidence presented and an understanding of the possible defenses.

 

The consequences are severe in an Orange County, California drunk driving case. A motorist accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, medication or drugs faces the possibility of jail, large fines, driverís license suspensions, mandatory alcohol education classes, ignition interlock devices, and other punishment. For that reason, it is critical that you have only a qualified Orange County DUI Lawyer handle your case as soon as you are released by the police. If you or someone you know has been or may be accused of driving under the influence (DUI), or driving with a blood alcohol level at or above the legal limit in Orange County, please read the information contained in this website and call the office and discuss your case with me. If you prefer, you may submit a confidential case questionnaire which I will review and which will receive a prompt response.
