Irvine DUI Defense

 

Irvine DUI

 

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Irvine, you should consider hiring a qualified, locally based DUI Lawyer to represent you.

 

The Reynoso Law Firm is recognized as being among the top driving under the influence (DUI) defense lawyers in California. Mr. Reynoso and the DUI investigators and experts who work with him 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 Irvine. The Orange County Superior Courts are located in Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Westminster, Fullerton and Laguna Hills. The most serious DUI cases and DUI cases involving juveniles are handled at the Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana.

 

The majority of misdemeanor DUI cases stemming from DUI arrests which occur in Irvine, California are handled by the Harbor Court Justice Center located at 4601 Jamboree Road, Newport Beach, CA 92660.†

 

Our Irvine DUI Lawyer specializes in driving under the influence (DUI) defense in Irvine, California and is a current 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). Additionally, Mr. has tried DUI cases in Orange County and is familiar with the specific procedures and local rules of the Orange County Superior Courts. This law firm only accepts Southern California DUI or California DMV cases and do not represent clients in any court or tribunal outside the State of California.

 

DUI arrests in Irvine usually initiate two separate cases. The first case is the Irvine DUI criminal case which will be prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorneyís office at the Harbor Superior Court located in Newport Beach. The Orange County District Attorney will usually charge a person with at two separate criminal violations following a DUI arrest made in Irvine, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, Mission Viejo and Anaheim Hills. 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 an Irvine DUI arrest involved an accident resulting in an injury to a person other than the individual arrested for driving under the influence, a more serious misdemeanor or felony DUI will usually be charged by the Orange County District Attorney alleging a violation of California Vehicle Code section 23153, subdivision (a) and California Vehicle Code section 23153, subdivision (b).

 

The second case is a Department of Motor Vehicles administrative per se (APS) case, in which the arrested personís privilege to drive in California is at risk of being suspended. Drivers arrested for DUI driving with a blood alcohol concentration 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 arrest, any California driverís license issued to the person arrested will automatically be suspended thirty (30) days from the date of the arrest for a minimum of four (4) months. If the person arrested in Irvine for driving under the influence (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 may 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 driverís license.

 

California DMV hearings are technical and complicated. For that reason the DMV hearing should only be handled by a lawyer having extensive experience handling California DUI and California DMV cases. To suspend a driverís license, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the California Highway Patrol officer, local police officer, or Irvine Deputy Sheriff had reasonable cause to believe that a violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152 or Section 23153 was committed, that the California DUI arrest and DUI detention 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 familiarity with the possible defenses.

 

The stakes are high in a Irvine DUI case. A person accused of driving under the influence 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 a person who has been arrested or is being investigated for driving under the influence (DUI) in Irvine have a qualified California DUI Lawyer handling their case.
