Providing DUI Defense for Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach DUI 

Laguna Beach Police Department has a vigorous DUI enforcement program.  The Laguna Beach Police Department routinely sets up checkpoints along Pacific Coast Highway in both the north and south portions of Laguna as well as Laguna Canyon Road.  Because of the locations of these checkpoints, they are virtually impossible to avoid and may be subject to challenges.  The Laguna Beach police also engage in saturation patrolling, especially in the downtown area and mid-town where most of the restaurants, bars and clubs are located.  The Laguna Beach Police vehicles are equipped with videotaping devices that capture the enforcement stop, your field sobriety tests and any breath tests you perform in the field.  In addition, the Laguna Beach Police Station has full video tracking everything that occurs while you are in custody including any blood test that may be taken.  An experienced DUI defense attorney can obtain these tapes and find any mistakes made by the police including any failure to follow procedures that can be used to challenge evidence in your case.

We have extensive knowledge of all aspects of DUI law

What sets us apart from other firms providing DUI services? For one thing, we favor a comprehensive approach when building a case in your defense. This begins with analyzing the DUI incident itself. When a police officer pulls over a motorist on suspicion of DUI, he or she looks for certain indicators of impairment. These indicators are highly subjective in nature, not based on hard science. As a result, it’s easy for officers to accuse a motorist of driving under the influence, even when there is no strong evidence to support the claim. When examining your case, we explore this issue and many others.



What You Need to Know

Once you have been officially charged with driving under the influence, it’s important to act immediately to assemble a defense. In fact, you have only (10) days to schedule a DMV hearing, and the clock starts at the moment of your arrest. What happens if you fail to schedule a hearing by the deadline? For one thing, your license will be suspended and you will loose your right to have a Hearing before the DMV which, with the proper legal representation can save your license and also raise important defenses for your separate Court case.  While the DMV is only concerned with suspending your drivers license, you will face a number of other penalties, including jail time and fines in the Court proceedings.   Therefore, it’s important to contact a Laguna Beach DUI attorney as soon as you can.

The legal team at the Law Office of Barry T. Simons will provide the defense that you need in this difficult time. We are highly experienced professionals with thorough knowledge of DUI law. This enables us to use a wide range of tools in assembling your case, so you will have the strongest possible defense.

Discovery Items

Laguna Beach Police Department has Digital Audio Recordings (DAR), Patrol Videos, and Jail Videos.  At The Law Office of Barry T. Simons, we subpoena all audio and video tapes from the Laguna Beach Police Department.  The patrol video and audio tapes are reviewed to determine whether the Laguna Beach Police had a right to pull you over in the first place, whether they properly advised you of your rights, whether they properly advised you about your responsibility to provide a chemical test of your breath or blood and whether they properly instructed how to perform field sobriety tests and properly evaluated them.  We will also review the tapes to evaluate whether your symptoms match your blood alcohol level or whether there is a disconnect suggesting that the blood or breath tests nay not be accurate, precise or reliable.
