One the Highest Rated Orange County DUI
Attorney Around.

I had interviewed many attorneys to discuss my very unfortunate situation that set by someone I knew. Hieu Vu was the most honest, caring and the professional attorney with compassion and empathy I ever interviewed. HE REALLY HAD A HEART. His fees were very reasonable and he will fight for you not just for your dollars but because he cares for his clients... I would strongly recommend him if you feel your life is up side down. Things happen but we learn to become a better person.

Hand down the best attorney I have ever worked with!!! My friend recommended Hieu because I needed to expunge something I did when I was young and dumb. Hieu is very humble, personable, and made me feel very comfortable. He's surprisingly funny too. Something not all lawyers are / can do. His pricing is very reasonable and he updated me on everything frequently. I highly recommend him!!!!

Great lawyer I got 2 d.u.I.'s back to back and he managed to keep me out of jail, worked with me all the way through it and gided me through the process. Not expensive and gave me a chance on making payments what more could I ask for in a lawyer!!

Client-Focused Service

““To the client, every angle is important, there’s a number of questions, and each person also have their own worries. Some will need a person to listen to them while others do not want to come into the office at all.. At the end of the day, it’s more than just delivering legal results and avoiding penalties in court. I put a 110% into every person I work. I strive to make sure everyone knows what is going on and is kept in the loop as the case goes on. The practice of law is more than just getting the results in court.” -Hieu Vu

Why should you get an Experiened Orange County DUI lawyer with a track record?

I have successfully avoided penalties and jail time for my clients and have amounted a record of sucess at the local courthouses. Having the strongest defense and taking the right steps on a serious DUI case can mean the difference between a felony DUI with bodily injury or a misdemeanor. Other cases will involve getting an automatic one-year license suspension or no suspension at all. 

What are the consequences of a DUI conviction?

It’s important to not take chances with the DMV in Orange County and equally important to not take whatever  the Orange County District Attorneys offers on drunk driving offenses. By doing so you are leaving the potential of taking lesser charges on the table or risking a felony criminal conviction.

The right lawyer can arm you with strong legal defenses and help you avoid any unnecessary enhanced penalty on your case. (excessive jail time when there are injuries or an accident, loss of gun rights, or second-degree murder charge when someone is killed) An advocate with the right track record can help you avoid criminal convictions and save you months in jail.

As a DUI Trial Lawyer my record of sucess is because of my philosophy on fighting DUI cases. This means everything should be looked at and all the tools should be used. There are a variety of defense strategies to approach each type of case. .

Inaccuracies of Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs)

Inaccuracies of Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs)

I am one of the few DUI Trial Lawyers who are is certified in Field Sobriety Tests. This means I have taken the same classes as the CHP officers. In addition, I am also qualified to take the instructor course for the purpose of teaching new law enforcement officers in administering the field sobriety testing. Because of this I know Field Sobriety test should be examined with audio and video from the officer’s body camera and compared withe the police report. Mistakes will be found in the administering of the test.

Driving under the influence of Drugs (DUID)

For cases of DUID (influence of drugs), I look for the amount that is therapeutic and take into consideration the history of the user. Simply taking prescription drugs does not mean you are under the influence.

Driving under the influence of Drugs
Violation of Title 17 Regulations on Blood and Breath Testing

Violation of Title 17 Regulations on Blood and Breath Testing (Not All Blood Tests are good)

It is not all just about the Blood Alcohol Level. Blood test and Breathe Tests might show you are over the legal limit but that does not mean they are accudrate.

When dealing with blood alcohol tests, blood samples needs to be retested for blood alcohol concentration, adequate sodium fluoride and anticoagulant and fermentation if the client suspects something is wrong with the results. Breathe testing devices also needs to be examined for maintenance issues as there are laws to keep them maintained properly. If a breathalyzer was used in your case then the maintenance and usage logs should be obtained.

When everything seems to be falling apart, it’s important to have an attorney on your side when facing the court system.

DUI Legal Process

An arrest by a police officer starts a case against you. Regardless of the truth, when you are arrested the criminal process is started against you.You must fight your case if you want to avoid the conviction from showing up on your criminal record. Instead of looking for ways to convict you, you need to have an attorney on your side who look for ways to win your case and are not afraid of jury trials

Constitutional of encounter and Motions to Suppress

Audio and video of encounter will be supoenaed to check whether the officer broke the law by stopping you. If there was a DUI Sobriety Checkpoint then a checkpoint package needs to be obtained from the police department to see if they did everything right without violating my client’s constitutional rights pursuant to Ingersoll v Palmer

Never admit guilt even when you are confronted by a police officer. Trial or the appearance of going to trial will be necessary when the prosecution are unwilling to take a reasonable position.You have the protection of the constitution. It is up to the state to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You are entitled to a jury of 12 peers. You also have the right to cross examine your accusers and produce evidence on your own behalf.

Orange County DUI Lawyer

Having a lawyer in  your drunk driving case can make a world of difference. You can not listen to the officer at the county jail or prosecutors for advice because their job is not to help you out with the criminal charges. In fact, their job is to prosecute on behalf of the state and not to be your defense attorney. In addition, you also can not rely on the judge for advice. It is true that they know the law, however, they are there as a neutral party. They are not allowed to help and are not allowed to give legal advice. You need an advocate with extensive epererience that will help you out along the way and present to you options as the case unfolds.
