DUI Lawyer in Orange COunty, CA

The Best Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys in the OC

Mission Statement
Award Winning Defense At the Law Offices of Hart J. Levin, we specialize in successfully defending DUI cases and criminal charges in all Southern California courts. We understand what is on the line when you are facing DUI or criminal charges. You risk losing your job, career, driver’s license, your ability to travel and the ability to provide for your family; not to mention a massive amount of punishment that the court and district attorney typically seek, which can be financially crushing and humiliating. As a former prosecutor and deputy district attorney, I have experienced the system from the inside. I know the inner workings of the prosecutor’s office, their undisclosed policies, and how they try to rack up as many convictions as possible. I began my own law firm to utilize that insider expertise and experience to even the playing field for those stuck in a criminal justice system. As I often say, the best way to beat the prosecutor is to hire a better one.

DUI Lawyers in Orange County, CA

The Best Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys in the OC
In our mission to deliver the best results, we ask each client to be willing and open minded in providing us support for their case as we utilize new and inventive DUI defense strategies and techniques with Orange County judges and prosecutors. DUI punishment can be severe in California and especially so in Orange County courts, where judges and prosecutors often seek jail time. When charged with a DUI in Orange County, you face severe penalties including possible jail time (or prison in felony DUIs), massive fines, long DUI education classes, many years of probation, labor, community service, AA meetings, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and much more.
If left unchecked, most Orange County district attorneys will seek harsh punishment and will not bother to consider what is fair or just. That is why it is critical to have a skilled and respected DUI defense attorney fighting your case immediately, to prevent you from being bullied by a prosecutor seeking another conviction on their resume.
DUIs are different from other types of criminal offenses due to their time sensitivity. If you do not act immediately, you will lose your driver’s license for a long period of time, in some cases up to several years. It is critical that you hire a highly skilled DUI expert immediately, who can secure your ability to drive with the DMV instantly and keep you on the road. The DMV gives only a small window of time in which to request to keep your license and fight the case. If you miss this window, the suspension is automatic and harsh. We here at the Hart J. Levin Law Firm will handle the entire DMV process for you and make sure it is done right, the first time, and on time. We know your job and livelihood may depend on it.
Most attorneys promise results, even DUI case dismissals, without seeing police reports and properly evaluating a new case. Sounding more like used car salesmen than attorneys, it can be hard to trust someone who is so desperate for your business. Here at the Hart J. Levin Law Firm, we do not make guarantees about outcomes. We guarantee service – dedicated and personalized to you. While we often receive outstanding results, we do not “sell” and believe our testimonials speak for themselves.
Important considerations in hiring an attorney include prior experience. Are they a former prosecutor or district attorney? If so, they will have a tremendous home field advantage in court. Do they have extensive experience? Are they highly respected in the legal community? And most importantly, did you feel a connection with the attorney? Hiring and choosing the right attorney for you is one of the most important decisions you will be faced with since it will make the difference between guilt and innocence, and jail vs. freedom.
