DUI (driving under the influence) is defined as operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Our experience with California’s drunk driving laws have enabled us to provide only the best DUI defense for our clients, no matter their specific situations.

Orange County DUI: Laws and Information

The Orange County DUI lawyers at Coffey & Coffey are highly knowledgeable in regards to California DUI law. By staying up to date on all legislation and case law in this area, our attorneys are able to provide more effective defense strategies for our clients.

If you refuse a blood test or breath test in Orange County, you will face penalties in addition to any DUI penalties you face. First and foremost, your driver’s license will be suspended – regardless of whether you are found guilty of driving under the influence. This is covered under California’s Implied Consent law. On your driver’s license application, when you sign at the bottom, you are agreeing to consent to chemical testing to determine your blood alcohol concentration if you are suspected of DUI.

California is also a “zero tolerance” state, meaning that any driver under the age of 21 may not drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .01% or higher. Really any amount of alcohol in an underage driver will result in an under 21 DUI charge.

In the face of California’s unforgiving drunk driving laws, it is important to consult an aggressive and experienced Orange County DUI lawyer as soon as you are arrested for driving under the influence. At Coffey & Coffey, we handle cases throughout Newport Beach, Fullerton, Westminster, Santa Ana, Laguna Niguel and the rest of Orange County.
