Our Orange County DUI attorneys in the firm's Irvine office welcome you. Guided by the nationally-known "Dean of DUI Attorneys", the firm of DUI defense attorneys has specialized in DUI defense exclusively since 1979: the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor only represents clients charged with DUI or facing DUI driver’s license suspensions. Our Irvine staff focuses entirely on Orange County criminal courts and DMV offices. With an average of 26 years criminal experience, each DUI lawyer (including 3 former prosecutors) is backed by a unique group of DUI experts: 2 former law enforcement officers (including a former Orange County homicide detective), a former head of a major crime lab blood-alcohol unit, and a former California DMV license suspension hearing officer.
Orange County’s Best Lawyersin Orange Coast magazine’s annual survey. With each Orange County DUI attorney and DUI lawyer specializing in DUI defense exclusively, the firm has received an "A-V" rating ("very high to preeminent") for ethics and competence from the Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory, the highest rating awarded and one shared by only 7% of attorneys in the country.
Known as the
Dean of DUI Attorneys, Lawrence Taylor is a University of California (Berkeley) and UCLA Law School graduate, a former deputy district attorney and a Fulbright Professor of Law. He is the author of the best-selling textbook in the field, Drunk Driving Defense, now in its 7th edition after 27 years of continuous publication. He is one of the original 12 founders of the National College of DUI Defense, later serving as Regent and Dean, and is today one of only 5 attorneys in the State of California to be Board Certified in DUI Defense. In 2002 Mr. Taylor was presented with the College’s Lifetime Achievement Award at Harvard Law School. Since then, he has been voted one of Southern California’s
Super Lawyers by over 65,000 Southern California attorneys for 9 of the past 10 years. Mr. Taylor consistently receives the highest ratings awarded by the leading guides, The Martindale-Hubbell International Directory of Attorneys, The Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers, and AVVO. He remains the only California DUI attorney whose biography is featured in Wikipedia and one of only five in California to receive the ABA-approved designation "Board Certified in DUI Defense Law" -- and the only one further designated as "Senior Specialist".
If you have been arrested for drunk driving in Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Fullerton or anywhere in Orange County, each DUI lawyer at the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor is prepared to guide you through this ordeal. Although widely known for its experience, expertise and courtroom skills, the attorneys and staff never lose sight of our focus: you, the client.
