Arrested for DUI? Don't fight your charges alone!

If you were recently arrested for DUI, you are not alone. While the charge is not to be taken lightly, having a strong defense attorney representing you can increase your chances for a positive outcome. The best thing to do for yourself right now is act quickly to contact an Orange County DUI lawyer. After a drunk driving arrest, you only have ten days to request an administrative hearing. Don't wait to seek legal counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney that can help you dispute the suspension of your license, probation and the other penalties you are currently facing.

Potential Defenses Against Your DUI Charge

While you may feel backed into a corner by a drunk driving charge, we want you to know that you do have options for defending your case. It is not uncommon for individuals to be wrongfully accused of drunk driving due to inaccurate field sobriety testing or blood alcohol content results. Additionally, you may be facing more serious penalties than your charge deserves, in which case we can fight to have your penalties reduced. If you choose The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs to represent you, there are many ways that we can challenge the prosecutor's case.

Weaknesses that are common in DUI cases include:

  • Arrest occurred during an unlawful police stop
  • Outside factors affected your field sobriety test
  • The chemical test was administered incorrectly
  • The chemical test was inaccurate
  • The law enforcement officer did not inform you of your rights
  • Time of testing versus time of driving

The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs can assist with a wide range of DUI cases, including:

You Only Have 10 Days to Save Your License

Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol can result in severe consequences both now and in the future. If you are convicted, you will be facing fines, community service, suspended driving privileges and even possible jail time. The first thing you should do following an arrest for a DUI is to contact an Anaheim criminal defense lawyer about building a case against your charges.

Driving under the influence is a unique criminal offense. Since the alleged wrongdoing was executed while driving a vehicle, there are two main authorities involved in discipline. The first is law enforcement, which will head up your prosecution in criminal court, but the other is the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), which controls your ability or inability to drive legally.

The suspension of your driver's license is one of the many penalties for DUI, but it is levied by the DMV, not the criminal court. In order to defend yourself against such punishment, you will need to appear at a DMV hearing to dispute the suspension. You only have ten days from the date of your arrest to request this hearing. Otherwise, your license will undergo a suspension by default.
