San Diego DUI Lawyers
Your San Diego DUI Lawyer. The Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor is a nationally-known and highly experienced law firm of DUI defense attorneys defending clients facing drunk driving charges and DUI license suspensions exclusively. No cases but DUI defense (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs) are accepted. Serving clients in all courts of San Diego County from our Carlsbad office, including nearby North County Court in Vista, each San Diego DUI attorney in the firm focuses entirely on DUI criminal charges and DMV license suspension hearings.
The firm of experienced DUI lawyers, led by renowned DUI attorney Lawrence Taylor, is listed in the prestigious Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and has been awarded the coveted “A-V” peer-review rating (“very high to preeminent” in competence and ethics) by the Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory the highest rating awarded to attorneys and one shared by fewer than 7% of all lawyers in the United States. With an average of 21 years experience, each San Diego DUI lawyer in the firm is highly qualified and focused entirely on San Diego DUI laws, evidence and procedures. And Mr. Taylor’s firm of DUI attorneys remains the only one approved by the California State Bar to provide continuing legal education to the legal profession.
Mr. Taylor’s firm of drunk driving defense attorneys has twice been featured in the American Bar Association Journal (December 2002 and January 2005), one article noting the DUI defense firm’s successful specialization and unique technical support (see “MADD and MADDER”). California Lawyer magazine (the journal for members of the California State Bar) commented in a May 2009 investigative article on DUI attorneys:
“Defendants often get from their lawyers what they pay for. At the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor…blood and urine samples are routinely reanalyzed; breathalyzer maintenance, calibration and administration are investigated; and sometimes even the scene of an arrest is revisited. Taylor’s firm also boasts a support staff that includes a forensic toxicologist who once did DUI testing for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s crime lab, a former hearing officer for the DMV, and a former police officer who was on the Santa Ana police department’s DUI task force. That’s a far cry from the firms where lawyers, by their own admission, do the same thing over and over again.”
The result of extensive experience, focused specialization and technical support from former law enforcement experts is success for our San Diego DUI lawyers both in the criminal courts and at DMV driver’s license suspension hearings.
With the best DUI attorneys in San Diego, the firm is guided by the Dean of DUI Attorneys Lawrence Taylor, author of the two most popular DWI defense textbooks among criminal defense attorneys across the country. With 35 years experience, he has lectured at over 200 DWI attorney seminars in 38 states, including 6 to San Diego DUI Lawyers. A former Dean of the National College for DUI Defense, he is today one of only four attorneys in California Board-certified by that organization’s American Bar Association-accredited program as a DUI defense specialist.
Over 65,000 Southern California attorneys have voted DUI attorney Lawrence Taylor a “Super Lawyer” in each of the past four years, one of only two DUI attorneys so honored. He is listed in Who’s Who in American Law and has been featured in Lawyer’s Weekly USA, The Christian Science Monitor, The National Law Journal, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The American Bar Association Journal. On July 25, 2002, at Harvard Law School, he was presented with the National College’s “Lifetime Achievement Award”.
