  • How to Hire An Experienced DUI Lawyer
    • In choosing an Orange County DUI Defense Attorney, it is important to choose a DUI Lawyer who understands the science and the law behind the defense of a DUI charge. All of the DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons have written and/or lectured extensively on the law and the science of DUI defenses and collectively represent California's most-recognized leaders in DUI Defense.
  • What You Must Know
    • It is imperative that the Orange County DUI Lawyer understands the law and science behind defending DUI cases in Oange County. The DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons are skilled at reviewing all of the evidence to find DUI defenses that work.
  • Science and Medical Defenses
    • The government's experts and chemical test devices assume that all persons are the same; however, if you suffer from certain medical conditions, you may not be a proper candidate for the standardized field sobriety tests that the officer administered to you at the side of the road.
    • The firm has a library of over 2500 scientific and medical articles relating to DUI that the DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons use to determine whether conditions ranging from gum disease to attention deficit disorder may provide an effective defense to DUI.
    • Some simple medical conditions such as the flu and/or being tested during your menstrual cycle may cause breath testing devices used in Orange County to give false-high readings.
    • Some other medical conditions like diabetes or low sodium levels can cause a person to appear intoxicated in the total absence of either alcohol or drugs.
    • The Law Office of Barry Simons can provide you with a detailed medical questionnaire to fill out which will help to determine whether you have any medical conditions that can assist us in successfully defending your Orange County Drunk Driving (DUI) case.
  • DUI Drug Cases
    • DUI cases involving legal and illegal substances can be tricky to defend, so it is imperative that your DUI defense attorney is experienced with driving under the influence of drugs.
    • We offer specialization in this area, and your DUI defense lawyer may be able to challenge the legality of the manner in which you were tested.
  • Multiple Offenses and Complications
    • If you have been previously convicted of a DUI, it is probable that the prosecution will take a tougher stance and you will be subjected to much more severe consequences, including long term multi-year drivers' license suspensions and mandatory jail time.
    • The DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons have experience in finding alternatives to actual incarceration in the jails of Orange County.
    • The DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons handle the full spectrum of possible DUI cases, from first-time DUI charges to prior conviction cases, as well as cases involving manslaughter and/or murder charges.
  • DUI Issues for Women
    • If you are a woman, there are various biological defenses that can be used in your defense.
    • Women tend to have blood alcohol levels that can read higher than those of men who have consumed the same quantity of alcohol due to differences in the rate at which the body metabolizes alcohol and the manner in which hormonal changes affect the way in which the body processes alcohol.
    • The DUI Lawyers of the Law Office of Barry T. Simons can examine your DUI case to determine whether any of these issues affected your chemical test results or your performance on the field sobriety tests.
  • Challenging Field Sobriety Tests
    • If you were subjected to a Field Sobriety Test upon being stopped by an officer, there are a number of ways in which this can be challenged by your Orange County DUI Defense Attorney.
    • Field Sobriety Tests do not produce any kind of scientific data, and they are often conducted erroneously by officers who have not been sufficiently trained.
    • Our Firm's DUI Lawyers have been specially trained on how to conduct field sobriety tests and examinations and have lectured and taught other lawyers on how to challenge these non-scientific field coordination tests.
  • Out-of-State Licensing Issues
    • If you are an out of state resident and have been charged with a DUI in the state of California, it is important to know that you will not necessarily be able to keep your driver's license privileges in your home state.
    • With the careful intervention of a skilled DUI Defense Lawyer, you may be able to keep your driver's license privileges in your home state.
    • A lawyer who is knowledgeable about issues concerning out-of-state residents can provide you with specialized representation in this regard.
  • Questioning Breath Testing
    • If your attorney can establish that the officer in question did not comply with the California Code of Regulations when you were pulled over, this can help you to avoid a driver's license suspension or even a conviction.
    • There are various ways in which breath testing can be called into question in your trial. There may be an assumption on the part of test conductor that the equipment was working properly and that it had been properly calibrated. Breath tests generally assume that the person being tested has a specific breath temperature and a person who has a higher body temperature due to fever or being seated in a heated car can produce a false-elevated reading.
    • Your OC DUI defense attorney can consider all of the common defenses to see if any of them fit your DUI case.
  • Free DUI Consultation
    • The Law Office of Barry T. Simons offers a free, no-cost, DUI Consultation and DUI Case Evaluation. Please call 949-497-1729 or complete a Confidential DUI Contact Form so you can schedule an appointment with the DUI Lawyers of the Office of Barry T. Simons.
