ORANGE COUNTY'S BEST DUI DEFENSE ATTORNEYS 

As if trying to decide whether you should hire an Orange County DUI Lawyer were not difficult enough, the decision as to which Orange County DUI Attorney to choose can be even more difficult.  Choosing the "Best" DUI Attorney for you is not as easy as one might think; but Attorney Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Attorneys of The SoCal Law Network have been selected as one of Orange County's "Best" or "Top-Rated" DUI Defense Attorneys . Attorney Peter F. Iocona has received numerous awards and accolades for his commitment to defending those charged with DUI and this makes him and the DUI Defense Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network Orange County's "Best" or "Top-Rated" DUI Defense Lawyers . Consider the following in making this decision:


THE BEST ORANGE COUNTY DUI DEFENSE ATTORNEYS KNOW THE LAW AND THE SCIENCE BEHIND DUI AND KNOW HOW TO USE IT TO DEFEND YOU AGAINST A DUI CHARGE.

In choosing the best Orange County driving under the influence (DUI) Lawyer, it is imperative that you know whether the attorney or any of the DUI Lawyers in the firm has received specialized training in the defense of driving under the influence (DUI) cases. Such training would include whether the DUI attorney is qualified in the Administration of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) under the guidelines set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Better yet, he/she has also qualified as a “Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor” under the guidelines set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Peter F. Iocona has "qualified" as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Administrator and a Standardized Field Sobriety Test "Instructor". Mr. Iocona uses his extensive knowledge of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests to defend people charged with DUI in Orange County.

Necessary training includes training on the administration of breath tests and how breath test devices are maintained and calibrated. Knowledge of breath testing is imperative for any true DUI Defense attorney representing you against DUI charges in Orange County and/or anywhere in Southern California or throughout the entire State of California.

Peter F. Iocona has been trained and certified on the administration of breath testing and on the proper manner in which to maintain and calibrate breath testing devices used in Orange County, California.

The defense of driving under the influence (DUI) drug or alcohol cases is a specialized discipline of criminal defense. Not all criminal defense lawyers are DUI defense lawyers. The defense of driving under the influence (DUI) cases is an area of criminal defense that involves a thorough understanding of the complex issues of science and law associated with the defense of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge. 

The "Best" Orange County DUI Defense Attorneys understand the science behind the science of DUI. In choosing the "Best" Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer, you should be sure that he/she is up-to-date on the trends in the scientific literature associated with a charge of driving under the influence. 

It is important to know whether the Orange County DUI defense Attorney keeps up with DUI case law.  Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Attorneys of The SoCal Law Network are former “Contributing Editors” to the two-volume treatise entitled: “California Drunk Driving Law”, which is often considered "The Bible of DUI Defense" in California by lawyers and judges throughout the State of California. They know both the law and the science behind defending against DUI charges in Orange County and throughout Southern California and the State of California.

Remember, knowing the law is half the battle in the defense of a DUI charge. Knowing the science is the other half, because if you don’t know the science behind the defense of a driving under the influence (DUI) charge, how can you then expect to go toe-to-toe with the prosecution’s expert? Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Attorneys of The SoCal Law Network know the science and the law—there is no need to look any further than Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network for your DUI Defense needs as they are Orange County's "Best" or "Top-Rated" DUI Defense firm.

Knowing the law could mean the difference between a DUI conviction and a dismissal through a Motion to Suppress and/or some other pretrial motion. A Motion to Suppress can be one of the most effective ways to win a DUI case without having to actually proceed to trial. In the event your Motion to Suppress is granted, the DUI charges will likely be dismissed and in turn you will avoid the uncertainty of a DUI trial.

AVOID "BIG NAME" DUI FIRMS WITH FIRST YEAR ASSOCIATES 

Some firms have a big name, but all the DUI cases are handled by a considerably less experienced lawyer without any input at all from the "big-named attorney".  Some firms have a big named attorney; but the attorney has not really been involved in the day-to-day practice of DUI Defense. Being a "Top-Rated" DUI Attorney requires more than knowledge of the law, it requires the right relationships.  Only DUI Lawyers who actually practice law on a day-to-day basis should be considered in your decision to hire Orange County's Best DUI Attorney .

Other firms may have several big-named attorneys, but those firms often take on too many cases at one time to be able to personally talk with you about your DUI case and/or answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your DUI case. In choosing Orange County's Best DUI Lawyer , make sure the DUI Attorney is available to you to answer the important questions you have regarding your Orange County DUI case.


AVOID "NO NAME" OR "ANONYMOUS" LAW FIRMS

You may also want to avoid those firms that have no mention of the attorneys, only a vague reference to a law group without providing any information about the actual identity of the lawyers that make up the law group.  How can you as a consumer put faith in a law firm that only refers to itself as an "XYZ Law Group" with no mention as to who the actual attorneys are or whether they actually specialize in DUI Defense in Orange County, California. The DUI Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network are named partners: Peter F. IoconaAlan Castillo, and Marlo Cordero. Collectively, they constitute Orange County's "Best" or "Top-Rated" DUI Defense Firms .

AVOID "DUMP TRUCK" DUI ATTORNEYS

As a suggestion, you may want to avoid what are often called "dump truck" lawyers: lawyers who do not actually review a case prior to advising the client to accept the plea. This is because there are often legal issues involved that could result in the DUI charges being reduced, or even dismissed outright. If the DUI case is not thoroughly analyzed by a competent and qualified Orange County DUI Defense Lawyer, you may miss an opportunity to have the case resolved more favorably.  Only choose an attorney who subpoenas evidence and thoroughly analyzes the evidence. If you want to just plead guilty, so yourself the time and the money and just plead guilty. Why hire a "dump truck" lawyer to plead you guilty without looking at any of the evidence when you could just do that yourself? 

These "dump trunk" lawyers often an enticing rate; but consider this: you get what you pay for. But why not have the best if the best attorney is also reasonable? At The SoCal Law Network, we thoroughly review the case, analyzing it for legal and factual defenses that can result in a reduced charge or a finding of "Not Guilty" by a jury or even a judge in certain instances.

AVOID DUI LAWYERS WHO ALLEGE "SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS" WITH PROSECUTORS AND/OR JUDGES THAT CAN GET YOU A "BETTER DEAL"

You may also want to avoid attorneys who imply or state that they have a "special relationship" or "connection" with certain prosecutors, judges or hearing officers because it is unlikely that most of people would put their jobs on the line for such a "relationship". A good Orange County DUI Defense Attorney should have a solid reputation for fighting for his or her clients while also still maintaining a reputation of professional decorum with the judges and prosecutors. The best defense is a well-prepared defense. Do not trust your Orange County DUI case to just anyone, trust it to a lawyer who gets results.

AVOID LAWYERS WHO ARE REALLY STILL PROSECUTORS OR POLICE OFFICERS AT HEART

Avoid lawyers who are still prosecutors at heart. If the lawyer still has "ties" to convicting those charged of crime, than that conflict of interest cannot be to your benefit. Not one of the lawyers of The SoCal Law Network is a former prosecutor or police officer. Not one of the lawyers has ever held a position where they were responsible for placing a person in jail for any type of crime for which one may be charged and seeking representation. Do your research in deciding which DUI lawyer to represent you in your Orange County or Southern California DUI case.

ONLY HIRE A DUI LAWYER WHO KEEPS UP WITH DUI LAW

You only want to hire an Orange County DUI Lawyer who keeps up with DUI law. You want to be certain that the DUI attorney you choose keeps up with the case law and statutory changes relating to the defense of DUI. 

You also want to be sure that the DUI lawyer belongs to organizations that focus on defending those charged with Driving Under the Influence, such as the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), the California DUI Lawyers' Association (CDLA) and is also a frequent lecturer and/or author on DUI defense. 

Peter F. Iocona and the DUI Defense Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network are members of the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) and of the California DUI Lawyers' Association (CDLA) and were "Contributing Editors" to the two-volume treatise: "California Drunk Driving Law" from 2003 to 2016. Peter F. Iocona and the experienced DUI Lawyers of The SoCal Law Network not only know the law, they helped write the book on it every year. 

MAKE SURE THE DUI LAWYER HAS THE PROPER TRAINING


It is important to also be sure that the DUI Lawyer has received and obtained the proper training, "qualifications" and "certifications" necessary to properly defend a person charged with DUI in Orange County. Such training would include training or "qualifying" as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test "Administrator". Better yet, if the DUI Attorney has "qualified" as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test "Instructor" as a "SFST Instructor" has received the training and obtained the status as one who is authorized to teach others how to properly administer and evaluate the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. 

Attorney Peter F. Iocona has "qualified" as both a Standardized Field Sobriety Test "Administrator" as well as an "Instructor". Mr. Iocona has been certified" in the proper administration in some of the breath testing devices used in Orange County, California. Mr. Iocona uses this training to determine whether and legal or factual defenses exist in your Orange County DUI case.


CHECK THE ORANGE COUNTY DUI LAWYER'S REVIEWS

In choosing an Orange County DUI Attorney, you also want to check the Orange County DUI Lawyers Reviews and Ratings, such as those that can be found on Google, Yelp, and AVVO.

AVVO is an "attorney-rating" service that accumulates data on participating and non-participating attorneys in all disciplines. With AVVO, participating attorneys have the ability to place all their credentials on one page. AVVO also allows users to ask attorneys questions that participating attorneys can answer free-of-charge. Just because an attorney answers questions does not make him/her a great attorney, but one can gain a better understanding of the attorney's competency by reading his or her answers.  Additionally, one can gain a better understanding of how the DUI attorney is viewed by other attorneys in his or her discipline; but be aware of the fact that the peer reviews may have been obtained by friends of the attorney, and not really peers. All in all, however, the website is a convenient tool in locating an attorney, but be sure to read all of the reviews from all of the sites that are available anywhere.
