YOU ONLY GET ONE FIRST OFFENSE DUI THE BEST DEFENSE IS A STRONG OFFENSE

Some people believe that a First Offense DUI is "no big deal" - just plead guilty and move on; however, you only get one First Offense DUI. Thereafter, if you were to get another one, you will be wishing you hired an experienced DUI Defense Attorney to determine whether any legal and/or factual defenses existed in your First Offense DUI case that would have made your Second Offense DUI, Third Offense DUI, or worse yet, Fourth Offense DUI, a lesser offense.

This is especially true on DUI Marijuana cases in Orange County because Orange County is one of the most aggressive Counties in prosecuting DUI Marijuana cases. Many people erroneously believe a DUI is like a traffic ticket because the penalties for a First Offense DUI in Orange County and throughout California are not overly harsh when compared with a multiple offense in Orange County. The Penalties for a Second Offense DUI, a Third Offense DUI, or a Fourth Offense DUI are so harsh you will be wishing you had defended against the First Offense DUI more aggressively because once you are on the radar of Orange County police officers as having a prior offense, the chances of you being investigated for a Second, Third, or Fourth Offense DUI are greatly increased, especially if the police officer believes you may have smoked marijuana recently. What might have been a simple law enforcement encounter becomes quite the opposite as soon as the police officer learns that you have been convicted of a DUI in the past, especially DUI Marijuana.
