Mr. Simons and his legal team have access to top experts in forensic toxicology and pharmacology. These skilled professionals work hand-in-hand to analyze and evaluate the important scientific issues and defenses related to your Orange County DUI case.




We have handled over 8000 cases over the last 40 years and understand the legal, scientific and factual issues that are present in these cases. We know how to challenge deficiencies in police administration of field sobriety tests to effectively undermine police opinions of sobriety. We know how to challenge the accuracy, precision and reliability of breath testing and blood testing.  We have the experience necessary to expose police misconduct and know how to challenge unlawful police detentions and arrests.

While knowledge of the law and science is critical to defending DUI charges, knowledge of the system is essential.  Criminal defense lawyers are very different from most other lawyers because we deal with the same judges and prosecutors all the time.  A lawyer’s reputation in the Courthouse is his greatest asset.  Being respected and trusted as a professional by judges and prosecutors enhances an attorney’s ability to advocate on behalf of his client.  Years of experience and knowledge of the people who make up the court system is an invaluable asset that can be utilized in navigating a client’s case through court.


We also understand the unique and special needs of our individual clients.  They come first, they are foremost! It is the culture of our firm to be proactive to assure that the clients particular needs are addressed in any resolution of their case’ whether by negotiations or litigation.  We understand that the direct and indirect consequences of a DUI conviction have long standing and profound effects upon our client’s lives.  We will use all of our knowledge and talents to review your case and try to find a way to win!  That is our goal. That is our culture.  But, let’s be honest, that doesn’t happen in every case.  Sometimes you win by not losing.   Sometimes the best resolution is a compromise where you balance the risks and the rewards.  Sometimes a DUI charge is a symptom of a greater problem that needs to be addressed and the solution to that bigger problem can be the solution to the legal problem.  This is where (40) years of experience and 8000 cases matters!  Knowing how to help and when to help.


We specialize in caring for the special needs of our Professional  clients.  We represent Doctors, Nurses, Lawyers, Realtors, Teachers and all other professionals who are licensed by the State of California and face reporting requirements and disciplinary actions by their Boards.  We not only vigorously defend their DUI charges but also coordinate action in anticipation of disciplinary action to minimize the chances of a license revocation.

We also represent many business executives who have special needs and travel requirements that create challenges that need to be addressed in creative ways.

Out of State residents also have very special needs which have to be addressed so as to avoid unintended consequences in their home state.

Every client that we serve can count on us to be there to help them in the future to do whatever is legally possible to sanitize their DUI record.  We offer our services to all of our clients to file Motions to Withdraw Pleas or Verdict of Guilty after probation and are available to consult with former clients who need advice filling out employment applications.
