Peter is an unusually talented attorney. He is the whole package! He cares deeply about his clients and has the skill, knowledge and tenacity to get results. All you have to do is look at his client reviews! Peter has worked with me for the last 12 years and I have had the opportunity to observe his professionalism first hand. He has earned the respect of Judges, District Attorneys, and even the police and government experts that he vigorously cross examines. This is because Peter prepares, Peter never stops learning and Peter has the human qualities that make him a leader in the courtroom. Peter wanted to know more about Field Sobriety Testing so Peter became a Certified Field Sobriety Instructor. Peter wanted to know more about our breath test device so he became a Certified Operator. Peter wanted to know more about the science of DUI so he read every book and article that he could get his hands on until he knew what government experts know and MORE.
I highly recommend Peter. I am a criminal defense attorney in Phoenix, AZ. I often have California clients who receive DUIs in AZ and face complicated AZ MVD issues as well as other issues that can arise when working between two states. I have talked to a lot of lawyers in trying to help my clients with such issues, but have never met one more knowledgeable and committed as Peter. As a result, I would never think of calling anybody else to help me with a CA criminal matter.
I recently had the pleasure of hearing Peter speak. He was an invited speaker to present to the top DUI lawyers in California. He presented a great lecture. Peter has always been highly regarded by his peers. You can't do better than to enlist Peter's assistance when you find yourself needing someone to assist you in defending all aspects of a DUI charge.
I endorse this lawyer. I heard Mr. Iocona lecture at a local seminar for the California DUI Lawyers Association. I have consulted him on difficult DMV administrative matters and he is very knowledgeable.
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Peter for years and we worked together at the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration Instructor training. He was one of the top students in the course, always helping his fellow students and I would recommend him to anyone in the Orange County area who needs an expert DUI attorney.
I have known Peter Iocona for many years now because we attend the same seminars and are members of the same legal organizations. Peter is a rising star in DUI defense and he is exceptional when it comes to understanding DMV law and the defense of DMV Administrative Per Se hearings. I also had the pleasure of having Peter as a student in the NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor course I was co-teaching with Robert La Pier. Peter was one of the top students in the class and is now a NHSTA Qualified Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor. Peter is a very knowledgeable attorney and is a quality person as well. I highly recommend him as an attorney.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Iocona at the NHTSA Instructor Course this spring, in Irvine Ca. Any attorney who can complete AND pass the 4 day NHTSA Instructor Course for Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and DUI Enforcement, is at the very top of his or her profession. Being a qualified instructor on DUI enforcement and standardized field sobriety tests give Mr. Iocona the unique ability to prove to judges, prosecutors and jurors that his client is not under the influence, and therefore not guilty of the charged crime. I would unequivocally hire Mr. Iocona if I was charged with a crime in the southern California.
I endorse this lawyer. I met Mr. Peter F. Iocona at the NHTSA SFST Instructorâ€™s Course. Mr. Iocona exhibited mastery of the subjected matter. Attending such a course demonstrates his enthusiasm in obtaining the skill set to become a top notch DUI defense attorney. Mr. Iocona possesses the skills and education to challenge the government and hold them to their burden. I highly recommend this attorney.
I met Mr. Iocona at the Instructor Level Standardized Field Sobriety Test training. Mr. Iocona proved to be exceptionally knowledgeable. However, what separates Mr. Iocona from other skilled DUI/DWI attorneys is that he is personable and possesses a keen wit. Now certified as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor, Mr. Iocona has demonstrated his commitment to learn his craft at the highest levels possible. I endorse and recommend Mr. Iocona to Laguna Beach residents and the greater community he practices in.
I met Peter Francis Iocona in May 2011 when we (along with a handful of United States attorneys) underwent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) Instructor Training. Going through the rigorous training by itself shows dedication and commitment. Throughout the training, Peter showed intense preparation and commitment to sharpening his craft. I can see his mix of being down to earth and having a sharp intellect as resonating quite well with juries and/or judges.
Peter and I worked together for our NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) Instructor Course in May of 2011. This course was virtually identical to the course that select law enforcement personal would be allowed to attend for the purpose of SFST instructor qualification/certification, and Throughout the course, Peter showed a sincere passion for tenacious DUI/DWI defense (as well as a great sense of humor) and I would highly recommend his counsel to anyone in the unfortunate position of defending themselves from a charge of DUI/DWI.
Peter is Mr. DMV and one of the kings of DUI defense in Orange County: extraordinarily conscientious, very hardworking and extremely dedicated, it is well-known that this lawyer is an excellent attorney who is a tremendous & generous asset to the DUI Defense community. Any person in need who hires this superb attorney will know he or she is in capable hands. Any person who has ever stepped foot in Barry Simons' office is fortunate if Peter works on his or her case. For a number of obvious reasons, I am honored to endorse this fine Laguna Beach criminal and administrative lawyer!
Highly knowledgeable—he is like a professor of DUI law. I have seen him speak at a DUI seminar and I still refer to my notes from the seminar on behalf of my own clients. I would hire him for a family member in a second.

Mr. Iocona has shown as a member of the National College for DUI Defense that he is committed to providing cutting edge DUI defense. The National DUI College members represent the most experienced DUI defense attorneys in the country. If you are charged with a DUI, a general practice lawyer is not the answer. Good DUI defense is hard work and few offenses in our court system call for greater attorney expertise than cases involving driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. DUI cases are especially complex because they require defense counsel to understand BOTH scientific and legal issues. As a fellow member of the College, if you are looking for exceptional representation, I would not hesitate to recommend Peter Iocona
