Currently, driving under the influence is one of the most commonly charged crimes in the United States. However, this particular type of criminal case requires a vast array of specialized knowledge in order to be successful in court, which many general practice criminal defense attorneys do not possess. The extreme complexity of a driving under the influence case requires a DUI attorney to exhibit expertise on a variety of topics including: human physiology, chemistry, breath-alcohol testing, blood-alcohol testing, direct and cross-examination of expert witnesses, and strict law enforcement procedures for probable cause, preliminary screening, and chemical testing.
Unlike most criminal defense offices, the Law Office of Robert Tayac focuses primarily on driving under the influence defense. Every DUI lawyer employed by this office has received specialized training on every nuance of DUI law and court procedure. The Law Office of Robert Tayac is dedicated to providing the highest quality of legal representation possible and your Alameda DUI case will be given the utmost attention from start to finish.
In addition to the DUI criminal case initiated in the Alameda County Superior Court, an Alameda DUI arrest also initiates a second case which is reviewed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This license suspension action, which is evaluated by a hearing officer employed by the Department of Motor Vehicles’ Driver Safety Office, is held in order to determine the outcome of an individual’s driving privileges in California.
In order to contest the suspension of an individual’s license, it is necessary that the individual or the individual’s DUI lawyer request a hearing with the DMV’s Driver Safety Office within ten (10) days of the Alameda DUI arrest. If a hearing is not requested within the specified time limit, the individual forfeits their right to contest the license suspension and their California driver license will be automatically suspended for 4 months, commencing 30 days after the date of the Alameda drunk driving arrest. Therefore, it is critical to obtain a qualified driving under the influence defense lawyer to help protect your right to drive.

Alameda General Information:
Alameda is a city in Alameda County, California. It is located on a small island of the same name next to Oakland, California in the San Francisco Bay. An additional part of the city is Bay Farm Island, which is adjacent to the Oakland International Airport.
The island that Alameda occupies was originally a peninsula connected to Oakland. Much of the peninsula was low-lying and marshy, but on higher ground the peninsula and adjacent parts of what is now downtown Oakland were home to one of the largest coastal oak forests in the world. The area was therefore called "Encinal," Spanish for "oak grove." "Alameda" is Spanish for "grove of poplar trees" or "tree-lined avenue,"and was chosen in 1853 by popular vote.
The city was founded on June 6, 1853. Originally three small settlements grew in town. "Old Alameda" referred to the village at Encinal and High, Hibbardsville was at the North Shore ferry and shipping terminal, and Woodstock was on the west near the ferry piers of the South Pacific Coast Railroad and the Central Pacific. Eventually, the Central Pacific's ferry pier became the Alameda Mole, featuring transit connections between San Francisco ferries and local trollies, Key System buses, Southern Pacific (formerly Central Pacific) commuter lines.
