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 defense 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.

Oftentimes, a DUI arrest in Piedmont, California initiates a second case in addition to the DUI criminal case in the Alameda County Superior Court; a Department of Motor Vehicles license suspension action. This action is reviewed by a hearing officer employed by the California Department of Motor Vehicle’s Driver Safety Office, who acts as both the prosecutor and judge. The hearing officer is tasked with determining the outcome of an individual’s California driving privileges.
An individual is provided only ten (10) days from the date of their Piedmont arrest to schedule an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing with the California DMV’s Driver Safety Office. In the event that a hearing is not requested within ten (10) days from the date of the arrest, the individual’s ability to challenge the suspension of their driver license is revoked and their license will be automatically suspended for a period of four months. This automatic suspension will begin thirty days after the initial Piedmont DUI arrest. Due to the severity of this action, it is advisable to obtain a qualified DUI defense attorney with experience representing individuals in DMV Administrative Per Se (APS) hearings, in order to best protect your California driving privileges.
