The DUI defense attorneys employed by the Law Office of Robert Tayac specialize in defending motorists accused of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above California’s legal limit of 0.08% in Contra Costa County’s Superior Courts.
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 Pittsburg DUI case will be given the utmost attention from start to finish.
In addition to the DUI criminal case initiated in the Contra Costa County Superior Court, a Pittsburg 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 Pittsburg 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 Pittsburg drunk driving arrest. Therefore, it is critical to obtain a qualified driving under the influence defense lawyer to help protect your right to drive.

Pittsburg, Contra Costa County General Information:
Pittsburg, California is a city located in north central Contra Costa County, California, the outer portion of the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Pittsburg, founded in 1839, was called first "New York Landing", then "Black Diamond", before citizens voted on "Pittsburg" on February 11, 1911, in honor of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The current name was chosen due to the city's relations with the steel building industry, first established by the Columbia Steel Company.
Since the early 1900s, Pittsburg has grown inland to the south, then spread east and west along State Route 4, now a freeway carrying resident commuters to jobs in the San Francisco Bay - Oakland Region. The city has enjoyed continued residential redevelopment growth to the north, as well as ongoing construction of major subdivisions in the southwest hills. Pittsburg currently has one BART station, the Pittsburg/Bay Point stop located in West Pittsburg.
