Lake Forest DUI Attorney & Lake Forest DUI Lawyer Resources

Arrested for DUI in Lake Forest ? Contact us immediately so we can assist in vigorously defending you in both court and at the DMV. Since you were arrested in Lake Forest for a DUI, you will have to deal with both the Orange County criminal courts (South Justice Center) and the DMV. If you were arrested for a Lake Forest DUI, you were most likely arrested by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. You may have also been arrested by the California Highway Patrol.

The most important aspect of a DUI arrest is the fact that you have 10 CALENDAR, not court or business days, to have your attorney contact DMV to schedule a hearing and stop the proposed suspension of your driving privilege in California. Irrespective of whether or not you have a California driver's license, the DMV Admin Per Se hearing is crucial in a DUI case because of the opportunity it affords your attorney to subpoena witnesses and evidence to the hearing to challenge the merits of a DUI arrest. At the DMV Admin Per Se Hearing we will have an opportunity, should we choose, to cross examine the officers involved in your arrest, any percipient witnesses and possibly a forensic toxicologist.

DO NOT SCHEDULE THE DMV HEARING YOURSELF !! The main reason is that it may not be convenient to our schedule nor any of the anticipated witnesses who may need to be subpoenaed. Let our office handle the contacting of DMV as well as the scheduling of the hearing. When we request a hearing we do so via facsimile with a transmission confirmation as well as via certified mail to insure DMV receives our hearing request.

Since you were arrested in Lake Forest for a DUI, your DMV Admin Per Se Hearing will be held at the Irvine Driver Safety office of the DMV. The Irvine Driver Safety office is located at 16735 Von Karman, #110, Irvine, CA 92606-4953. [# Click here for driving directions to Irvine Driver Safety office].
