Orange County DUI Attorneys
A highly specialized firm of experienced DUI lawyers (including 3 former prosecutors), each Orange County DUI attorney serves clients facing criminal DUI charges in all five Orange County courts (Harbor/Newport Beach, Westminster, Laguna Niguel, Santa Ana and Fullerton) from its Irvine office. Each of our Orange County DUI attorneys practices DUI defense exclusively: No cases but misdemeanor or felony DUI defense (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs) are accepted. Each Orange County DUI lawyer in the firm only represents clients facing criminal drunk driving charges and DUI-related DMV driver’s license suspensions.
Known nationally as the “Dean of DUI Attorneys”, Lawrence Taylor is a graduate of the University of California (Berkeley) and UCLA School of Law, and is a former prosecutor, Fulbright Professor of Law, and Dean of the National College of DUI Defense. He has lectured at seminars for DUI defense attorneys in Orange County, throughout California, and in 38 states; he is also the author of the standard textbooks in the field, Drunk Driving Defense, 7th Edition, and California Drunk Driving Defense, 4th Edition. With 35 years of experience, Mr. Taylor is one of only 5 criminal attorneys in California Board-certified by the National College’s ABA-accredited program as a DUI defense specialist. Over 65,000 Los Angeles and Orange County attorneys have voted Mr. Taylor a “Super Lawyer” in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and again in 2010 the only Orange County DUI attorney so honored, and one of only two DUI lawyers in all of Southern California.
The firm of DUI lawyers, with an average of 26 years experience, has been awarded the coveted peer review rating of “AV” (“very high to preeminent” in legal ability and ethics) by the Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory the highest rating awarded and one shared by fewer than 7% of all lawyers in the United States. Mr. Taylor’s firm of Orange County DUI lawyers is also listed in the prestigious Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. It remains the only California DUI law firm approved by the California State Bar to provide continuing education to the legal profession, and has been featured in the American Bar Association Journal for its experience, unique specialization, and staff of former law enforcement officials. California Lawyer magazine (the professional journal for members of the California State Bar) observed in a May 2009 expose article on DUI attorneys:
“Defendants often get from their lawyers what they pay for. At the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor…blood and urine samples are routinely reanalyzed; breathalyzer maintenance, calibration and administration are investigated; and sometimes even the scene of an arrest is revisited. Taylor’s firm also boasts a support staff that includes a forensic toxicologist who once did DUI testing for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s crime lab, a former hearing officer for the DMV, and a former police officer who was on the Santa Ana police department’s DUI task force. That’s a far cry from the firms where lawyers, by their own admission, do the same thing over and over again.”
The consequence of specialization, technical support and experience for our Orange County DUI lawyers can be seen in their results in both the Orange County drunk driving prosecution and the administrative license suspension hearing.
