CAN MEDICAL CONDITIONS MAKE AN UNIMPAIRED PERSON APPEAR IMPAIRED?


The government’s experts and machines assume that all persons are the same; but if you suffer from any one of hundreds of medical conditions you may not be a "proper candidate" for the field sobriety tests that were administered by the officer roadside or the breath and/or blood tests that you were compelled to take after your DUI arrest.

DUI Medical Conditions


Our firm has a library of over 2000 scientific and medical articles relating to defenses in DUI cases which we use to determine whether conditions ranging from gum disease to attention deficit disorder may provide an effective defense to DUI. It is therefore important that you find out from a DUI Specialist whether your medical condition can count in your favor in your DUI case. Some simple 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 readings. Some conditions such as diabetes or low sodium levels can cause a person to appear intoxicated in the total absence of either alcohol or drugs. The DUI Defense Lawyers at The Socal Law Network can provide you with a detailed DUI medical questionnaire to help us try to determine if you have any medical conditions that can assist you in successfully defending your DUI case.

CAN I BE ARRESTED FOR DUI IF I AM TAKING PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION?


A common question we often get is: "Can I really be charged with DUI for taking my prescription medications?" The short answer is "Yes" and the stark reality is, it is far too common the people are charged with driving under the influence of their prescription medications just because they take a certain type of medication. This is especially true for those taking "pain medications", as law enforcement will automatically jump to the conclusion that you were under the influence of the prescription medication and just happened to have been involved in a traffic collision.

DUI MARIJUANA DEFENSE ATTORNEY - ORANGE COUNTY DUI LAWYERS


Now with marijuana being legal, Orange County Law Enforcement Agencies have increased DUI Enforcement of DUI Drugs, particularly, DUI Marijuana. One of the problems for a person charged with DUI Marijuana, is that marijuana stays in one's bloodstream for 30-to-45 days, thereby increasing the chances of DUI Marijuana charges being filed in Orange County even with the smallest amount of THC if the officer believes you were under the influence of marijuana. If you are charged with DUI Marijuana in Orange County or anywhere in Southern California, you need experienced DUI Attorneys and who are not afraid to proceed to trial - you need an experienced DUI Trial Lawyer. You need Peter F. Iocona and the Orange County DUI Defense Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network.

CAN AN EXPERIENCED DUI LAWYER HELP WITH INTERSTATE LICENSING CONSEQUENCES?


If you are an out-of-state resident and are charged with DUI in the state of California, there are a number of details of which you need to be informed. One is that if your privilege to drive is suspended in the State of California, you will not necessarily be able to keep your driver’s license privileges in your home state. 

Interstate Licensing Consequences


With the careful intervention of an experienced and skilled DUI lawyer, you may be able to keep your driver’s license in your home state. A lawyer who is knowledgeable about issues concerning out-of-state residents and interstate licensing consequences can provide you with specialized representation in this field of law. 

DO WOMEN HAVE UNIQUE PHYSIOLOGICAL ISSUES THAT SERVE AS DUI DEFENSES?


If you are a woman, there are various biological defenses which can be used in your defense. Women tend to have blood alcohol levels that can read higher than those of men who have consumed exactly the same quantity of alcohol due to differences in the rate at which the body metabolizes alcohol and the manner in which hormonal changes effect the way in which the body processes alcohol.

CAN AN EXPERIENCED DUI LAWYER CAN CHALLENGE THE 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. 


Challenging Field Sobriety Tests


Because Field Sobriety Tests do not produce any kind of scientific data, and are often conducted erroneously by officers who have not been sufficiently trained in conducting these tests, this can be a strong component of your defense. Those who are physically disabled may also be unable to perform these tests for reasons other than sobriety. Our Firm’s DUI Lawyers have been specially trained on how to properly conduct field sobriety tests and have lectured and taught other lawyers on how to challenge these non-scientific field coordination tests.

CAN AN EXPERIENCED DUI ATTORNEY CHALLENGE THE BREATH TEST RESULTS?


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 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. 


Challenging Breath Testing


There are many other defenses that exist in this area as well as breath tests are an indirect measurement of your true blood alcohol level, not a direct measurement. Your Orange County DUI defense attorney can consider these defenses to see if any of them fit your Orange County DUI case.

WHAT IF I HOLD A PROFESSIONAL LICENSE AND AM CHARGED WITH DUI?


A common situation that often arises is where the person who is charged with DUI also holds a professional license. If you are the holder of a professional license and are charged with DUI or some other crime, you need a defense lawyer who not only practices DUI Defense; but also professional license defense.


Professional Licensee Charged With DUI

A MESSAGE FROM ORANGE COUNTY DUI LAWYER PETER F. IOCONA AND THE SOCAL LAW NETWORK - ORANGE COUNTY DUI DEFENSE ATTORNEYS

Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Lawyers of the SoCal Law Network were previously at a larger criminal defense firm specializing in DUI Defense. We left the firm to reduce our overhead so we could focus on our clients and their needs because the process of being charged with DUI can be overwhelming.

We do not have expensive suites in high-rise corporate offices or an office on the coast in overpriced rent districts. We do not have an excessive number of staff members. We left all those things behind so we could provide clients with reasonable fees while also providing more specialized, more personalized, and more individualized attention to our clients. This permits the opportunity to better serve our clients' needs. We answer our own phones and every client is provided the cell phone numbers of the partners - we are here to make this experience easier while also obtaining the best possible outcome to your case. We are committed to providing clients with the type of service they desire.

The only consequence of taking on fewer cases to provide more specialized, more personalized and more individualized attention is that it reduces the number of cases we can take on, so if we do not feel that we can help you, will tell you. In such cases, we could send you to someone who can help walk you through the process or we can do it for you at a reduced rate, ensuring that you still get the benefit of our nearly 50 years of combined experience to help guide you through this process.

We are the "Best" representation in Orange County when it comes to the defense of those charged with DUI. Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Attorneys of The SoCal Law Network, which includes Alan Castillo and Marlo Cordero, are fully committed to defending those charged with crimes. We are committed to protecting our clients from the oppressive government action commonly found in Orange County and throughout Southern California.

IS A DUI CHARGE AN INFRACTION OR IS IT A CRIMINAL CHARGE?


Many people searching for answers after a DUI arrest think that a DUI is really no big deal; but the truth of the matter is that it is a big deal. A conviction for driving under the influence can have potentially far-reaching consequences, not only to your current employment but to your future employment opportunities even if you do not hold a Professional License. A conviction for driving under the influence can also affect your ability to obtain insurance or entry into certain 
communities.

If you were arrested for driving under the influence in Orange County or anywhere in Southern California, contact us for a Free Consultation and Case Evaluation - it could mean the difference between a conviction and a dismissal or a reduction to the charge of driving under the influence. We have one of the highest dismissal rate in court and one of the highest "Set Aside" rates in the DMV Hearings that accompany a DUI charge and which determines whether you will be able to retain your privilege to drive as a result of the driving under the influence of alcohol charge.

MEET ORANGE COUNTY'S "BEST" OR "TOP-RATED" DUI LAWYERS IN ORANGE COUNTY

"Experienced" "strong", "aggressive", "effective" and "dedicated" are words that people commonly used to describe Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Attorneys of The SoCal Law Network.

    PROVEN RESULTS - HIGH DISMISSAL RATE


    We have one of the highest success rates in Orange County for dismissals, reductions, and findings of not guilty by verdict. This is why the firm is the best choice to defend you against an Orange County driving under the influence charge so as to allow you the highest chances of avoiding a conviction.
      One of the most effective ways to obtain a dismissal of driving under the influence charges is through a Motion-to-Suppress, which can be based on any one or more of the following alleged Vehicle Code Violations:
      There are certain exceptions to consider when evaluating the ability to succeed at a motion to suppress hearing. An experienced defense attorney will know how to properly evaluate all of the evidence in order to know best how to proceed in light of these exceptions to the Fourth Amendment: 
      Keep in mind that every case is different. While the exceptions may have applied to the facts of those cases, they may not apply to yours; thus making your arrest unlawful and leading to the suppression of the evidence and a dismissal.

      If you were arrested at a
      DUI Sobriety Checkpoint, or by officers or deputies working as part of a Driving Under the Influence DUI Saturation Patrol/Roving Patrol, there is usually audio and/or video as well, which can be integral pieces to your defense. Additionally, all the law enforcement agencies are required to document that the vehicles stopped at a Sobriety Checkpoint were done by way of a neutral mathematical formula to remove unlawful authority of police officers serving as "greeters" at a checkpoint.

      We thoroughly review all of the evidence that the government intends to use against you to develop defenses that win. There is no substitute for the experience that these high-powered DUI Defense Attorneys bring to your case and the impact they can have on the outcome of your case.

      Being responsive to your needs is especially important when enhancements to the DUI charge exist as these can increase the changes of increased penalties, even jail time as many of them come with mandatory jail sentences:
      We believe that being responsive to our clients is a primary concern. But don't just take our word for it, check out our Testimonials to learn more about what we can do for you to defend you against a driving under the influence charge in Orange County, California.

      ORANGE COUNTY DUI DEFENSE
      THE EVIDENCE IS THE KEY TO YOUR DEFENSE

      This website focuses on the discovery, or evidence, one can expect to find if they were arrested for drunk driving in Orange County, California. The discovery, or evidence, is what you should expect your lawyers to obtain to determine whether any legal and/or factual defenses exist in your case.

      Some law enforcement agencies make audio and video recordings of the stop, detention, arrest, and sometimes even of the chemical test, whether it be a breath or blood test. Some agencies are now using body cameras. This information can be invaluable to an experienced and knowledgeable drunk driving attorney who understands the defenses behind a drunk driving case.

      If you are interviewing different lawyers, you want to ask each of them whether they routinely subpoena evidence and whether they actually review the because most rarely even request or review any of the evidence that can and will be used against you in court. 
      To learn more about the types of discovery, or evidence, for each city within the County, click the appropriate link below.


      REMEMBER: YOU ONLY HAVE TEN (10) CALENDAR DAYS TO REQUEST A DMV HEARING TO SAVE YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE

      Upon being released from jail, the person is served with a California Department of Motor Vehicles "Temporary Driver's License Endorsement", which gives you only 10 calendar days from the date of an arrest for driving under the influence to contact the appropriate California DMV Driver Safety Office to request an "APS" or "Admin Per Se" administrative hearing to preserve your privilege to drive during the pendency of the case.

      DMV APS hearings are an instrumental part of your defense. These hearings can be won and then allow you to avoid a suspension of your driver's license.

      You need an attorney who is skilled and knowledgeable about DMV hearings and knows how to analyze the discovery for winnable issues and/or use the DMV APS Hearing as a means to develop defenses to the charges.
