First-Time DUI Charges in Orange County, CA

If you are charged with your first DUI in Fullerton or Orange County, Attorney Jacqueline Goodman can provide you with the legal counsel and representation you need to minimize the negative impact a DUI can have on your life.

No need to hesitate. Call (714) 733-1737 to start your defense.

Don't Risk the Penalties

Even a first time DUI charge carries the potential to significantly punish you, oftentimes beyond what most people would say is reasonable.

You could face the following "mandatory" punishments for a first-time DUI in California:

  • $390 to $1,000 in fines plus court fees and assessment costs —the minimum fine of $390 will probably escalate to $2,000 at least
  • 48 hours to 6 months in jail if charged with a misdemeanor DUI
  • Four-month suspension of your driving privilege
  • Mandatory 4-, 6-, or 9-month alcohol treatment program
  • DNA sample sent to the prosecutor, if in Orange County
  • MADD panel attendance
  • Hospital and Morgue Program, if in Los Angeles

A first DUI conviction will also likely bring a probation sentence of three years, which slams you with additional penalties if the probation requirements are violated. Probation usually includes being barred from driving with any amount of alcohol in your system and submitting to a blood or breath test upon request by an officer at any time. To say being on probation is inconvenient is a massive understatement.
