The extremely complex nature of a driving under the influence case requires a DUI lawyer 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.
Every DUI lawyer employed by the Law Office of Robert Tayac has received specialized training specifically targeted to the successful defense of DUI related charges. This office is dedicated to providing the highest quality of legal representation possible, and therefore, you can be sure that your Hayward 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, a Hayward DUI arrest also initiates a second administrative case which is reviewed by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). During this hearing, an employee of the Department of Motor Vehiclesí Driver Safety Office is tasked with the effort of determining the status of a motoristís California driving privileges.
In order to contest the possible suspension of an individualís driver license, a request must be made for an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing within ten (10) days of the Hayward DUI arrest. In the event that the hearing is not scheduled within the allotted time, the individualís license is automatically suspended for 4 months. This suspension is imposed 30 days after the date of the driving under the influence arrest.

Hayward, Alameda County General Information:
Hayward is a city located in the East Bay in Alameda County. The sixth largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is one of the larger suburbs of Oakland. The former suburbs of Mt. Eden and Schafer Park have been incorporated into Hayward.
Hayward, originally known as "Haywards", is named for William Hayward, a worker from a New England shoe factory who came to California in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. After spending several frustrating years in the gold fields, Hayward returned to the Bay area. He squatted on Guillermo Castro's ranch near Palomares Canyon for a while until Castro invited him to his home to discuss his trepassing. Hayward soon bought 40 acres of Castro's land close to Castro's home, at present day A and Main Streets, which he used to establish a store and post office. He petitioned the US Postal Service to name the post office Hayward's, but because an office cannot be named after a living person, the name was changed to Haywood.
Hayward is home to the main campus of California State University, East Bay, formerly known as California State University, Hayward. California State University, East Bay is a public university within the California State University system.
