Lawrence Taylor and Robert Tayac have written the premier DUI Defense Book, entitled California Drunk Driving Defense. The book addresses both the Administrative License Suspension Hearing conducted by the California Department of Motor Vehicles and the criminal case that most DUI arrestees are certain to face in court.
I am a former Supervising Prosecutor in the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office. I was once in charge of all felony and misdemeanor DUI cases prosecuted in Ventura County. I know valuable literature when I run across it. The DUI attorney must stay current and informed to give clients any chance of prevailing in front of either the DMV or a criminal trial jury. This book does exactly that.
California Drunk Driving Defense lays out a sophisticated approach to attack the government’s DUI case. The client’s license should be aggressively defended in front of the DMV. The DMV process should also be used as a discovery tool to obtain police dash cam videos, 911 Calls, police reports, calibration records and other documents relevant to the criminal proceeding. This is one of the few areas in criminal law where a defense attorney can gain a head start over local prosecutors.
Every defendant deserves a DUI defense lawyer who is motivated to fight hard and scratch for every piece of helpful evidence. If you are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. I can be reached at (805) 585-0048 or on the internet at billhaneylaw.com.
