Irvine DUI Lawyer

Have you been arrested for DUI in Irvine, California?

A DUI arrest can be an intimidating and stressful experience that poses certain risks to your future. No one should have to face this situation alone; doing so is never recommended as you have been drawn into a criminal process which calls for the knowledge, skills, and determination of a legal professional. If you've been arrested for any type of DUI in Irvine, whether a first-time offense, a repeat offense, or a felony DUI, you should rely on a criminal defense attorney who knows the system and how best to defend you for optimum results.

At the Law Office of Frances Prizzia, serving clients in and around Irvine, you will find a diligent and dedicated professional who is passionate about ensuring that your rights are protected and that you have a solid defense.

DUI Cases in Irvine

Driving while impaired by alcohol and / or drugs is a serious matter in California. Even on a first conviction, you will face a driver's license suspension, hefty fines, potential jail time, an alcohol or drug treatment program, probation, and an increase in auto insurance premiums. You may also be required to install and maintain at your own expense an ignition interlock device. A conviction of this nature will remain on your driving record for 10 years. Subsequent offenses will result in harsher penalties.

California DUI laws include not only alcohol and street drugs but prescription medicines and even over-the-counter medicines. Any chemical substance ingested which can impair your judgment, reaction time, and motor skills can lead to an arrest. If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures at .08 percent or above on a chemical test, then that could constitute evidence for a conviction. For drivers younger than 21, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .01 percent or higher. Commercial drivers can be convicted if they found to be driving with a BAC of .04 percent or more.

Why You need an Irvine DUI Attorney

DUI defense is a complex area of law which combines technical, scientific, medical, and legal factors. All of these areas need to be investigated by an attorney who knows what to look for and how to use pertinent facts. Our lead Orange County criminal defense attorney is an experienced trial lawyer who will explore every legal avenue and take all necessary measures to help create a strategic defense.
