Unlike most criminal defense offices, the Law Office of Robert Tayac focuses primarily on driving under the influence defense. The extreme complexity of a driving under the influence case requires a DUI lawyer 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. Because the firm specializes in driving under the influence case work, you can be certain that the Law Office of Robert Tayac has the knowledge, experience, and legal aptitude to successfully defend your Napa DUI case.
A Napa DUI arrest triggers two separate cases. The first case is a criminal DUI case which is prosecuted by an Assistant District Attorney in the Napa County Superior Court. The second case is initiated by the California Department of Motor Vehicles’ Driver Safety Office. This action is conducted by the DMV in order to determine whether or not an individual’s California driving privileges should be suspended as a result of their Napa DUI arrest.
In order to contest the possible suspension of an individual’s driver license, a request must be made for an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing within ten (10) days of the Napa DUI arrest. If the hearing is not scheduled with the California DMV’s Driver Safety Office within the allotted time, the individual’s right to contest the DMV suspension is waived and their California driver license will be automatically suspended 30 days from the date of the Napa DUI arrest, for a minimum of 4 months. Therefore, it is critical to consult with a qualified driving under the influence defense lawyer as soon as possible, in order to help protect your California driving privileges.

City of Napa, Napa County General Information:
Napa is the county seat of Napa County, California. It is the principal city of the Napa county Metropolitan Statistical Area, which encompasses Napa county. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 72,585. The area was settled in the 1830s. It was incorporated as a city in 1872.
When California was granted statehood in 1849, Napa Valley was in the Territory of California, District of Sonoma. In 1850 when counties were first organized, Napa became one of the original counties of California, and in 1851 the first courthouse was erected.
Napa had become the primary business and economic center for the Napa Valley by the dawn of the 20th century. As agricultural and wine interests developed north of the city limits much of the light industry, banking, commercial and retail activity in the county evolved within the city of Napa and in earlier times along the Napa River through the historic downtown. Napa Glove Factory was established in 1903 and was the largest plant of its kind west of Chicago.
