The DUI attorneys employed by the Law Office of Robert Tayac have been specifically trained in defending motorists accused of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above Californiaís legal limit of 0.08% in Contra Costa Countyís Superior Courts.
The extreme complexity of a driving under the influence case requires a DUI attorney to possess 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.

At the Law Office of Robert Tayac, Attorney Tayac and his team of experienced lawyers and staff have the education, experience, and training necessary to successfully defend your Lafayette driving under the influence case.
In addition to a DUI criminal case initiated by the Contra Costa County Superior Court, a Lafayette DUI arrest also initiates a license suspension action which takes place before the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing is conducted in order to determine whether or not an individualís California driving privileges should be suspended as a result of their Lafayette DUI arrest.
If a DMV hearing is not requested by either the individual or the individualís lawyer within ten (10) days of a Lafayette DUI arrest, the motoristís right to contest the suspension of their driver license is waived and the individualís California driver license will be automatically suspended 30 days from the date of the DUI arrest, for a minimum of 4 months. Therefore, it is critical to obtain a qualified DUI defense attorney to help protect your right to drive.
