“My son was arrested for DUI. I hired Wallin & Klarich, and the law firm provided excellent advice and representation throughout the entire legal process. The attorneys were extremely prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. Thanks to the hard work of Wallin & Klarich, my son’s case was rejected by the DA and no further criminal proceedings took place. We owe it all to Wallin & Klarich!”


“I was under 21 years old and was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol. At the time I was arrested, I did not know the consequences I faced. My blood-alcohol test results were over the legal limit, so I was scared. Then, I hired Wallin & Klarich. Wallin & Klarich won my DMV hearing and stopped the DMV from suspending my driver’s license. My attorneys were also able to get my criminal DUI charges reduced to lesser charge. Thank you Wallin & Klarich!”


“I was charged with DUI causing an accident. My blood-alcohol content level was well above the legal limit so I was extremely nervous. I also failed to provide insurance and was charged with an additional offense. I was facing more than six months in county jail. Wallin & Klarich took control of my case immediately. I never had to set foot inside a courthouse, and my attorneys were able to obtain a very favorable outcome for me. I would highly recommend Wallin & Klarich if you are facing any DUI-related charges.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my driver’s license be revoked if I am charged with DUI?

If you arrested for DUI in Orange County, it will trigger two cases. One is the criminal case, and the other is a case with the DMV regarding your driver’s license. Upon your arrest, the officer will likely seize your license and provide you with a pink paper. From that moment, you only have ten days to set up a DMV hearing where your attorney can fight for you so that you can keep your driving privileges.

What penalties do I face if I am charged with DUI in Orange County?

The punishment you face will depend upon the circumstances of your case. Many factors will be considered, including whether this is your first DUI conviction, if you caused any injuries or death of others as a result of your DUI, and your BAC level. For a detailed description of possible punishment, visit our DUI sentencing page.

I was convicted of DUI and I need to attend an alcohol program. How do I enter this type of program?

It is common in DUI cases for sentences to include a requirement to attend an alcohol program. If this is part of your sentence, you will need to find a local facility where these programs are offered. Visit our resource center to find a list of court-approved self-help programs in Orange County.
