San Diego DUI Attorney
Our San Diego DUI lawyers welcome you. Each highly experienced San Diego attorney in California’s premier DUI defense firm stands ready to defend you against drunk driving charges in San Diego County. Each San Diego DUI lawyer will also fight for the return of your drivers license at the DMV license suspension hearing.
The Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor, a firm of 5 DUI lawyers (including 3 former prosecutors) with an average experience of 26 years, is widely regarded as the most respected DUI defense firm in the country. Each DUI lawyer in the firm is highly experienced and handles drunk driving defense cases exclusively. Each San Diego DUI attorney focuses entirely on the client facing DUI charges and a related DMV license suspension. The American Bar Association has twice featured the firm of DUI lawyers for its specialization as well as for its unique technical support staff of former DUI law enforcement personnel. And the firm has been awarded
Avvo‘s highest ranking of 10 (Superb), as well as averaging 5 stars for client reviews on Yelp. The firm has consistently received the
AV rating (
very high to preeminent in competence and ethics) from the Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory - the highest rating possible and one shared by fewer than 7% of all attorneys in the U.S.
With offices in downtown San Diego, Mr. Taylor is nationally known as the
Dean of DUI Attorneys, and has been voted one of Southern California’s
Super Lawyers by over 65,000 Southern California attorneys for the past 7 years. A former Marine, he is a graduate of the University of California (Berkeley) and UCLA Law School, and is a former prosecutor and Fulbright Professor of Law. He is the author of the standard textbooks on the subject, Drunk Driving Defense — the best-selling DUI text in the country, now in its 7th edition after 32 year of continuous publication — and California Drunk Driving Defense, the leading book among attorneys in San Diego and throughout California. He has lectured at over 200 DUI seminars for DUI attorneys in San Diego and in 38 states. One of the original 12 founders of the National College for DUI Defense, Lawrence Taylor served as both Regent and Dean, and is today one of only 5 attorneys in California (and the only one in San Diego) to receive the ABA-approved designation "Board Certified in DUI Defense Law" -- and the only one further designated "Senior Specialist". He is one of only two DUI attorneys in the country whose biography appears in Wikipedia, and over many years continues to be awarded the highest rankings from the most respected attorney guides: The Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers, AVVO and The Martindale-Hubbell International Directory of Attorneys.
On April 17, 2013, the United States Supreme Court handed down its decision in the landmark DUI case of Missouri v. McNeely. In so doing, Chief Justice Roberts cited Mr. Taylor's preeminent treatise Drunk Driving Defense (7th edition) as authority in the field.
With offices located in San Diego and in Carlsbad, our DUI defense attorneys defend clients charged with drunk driving throughout San Diego County, as well as at DUI-driver’s license suspension hearings at the DMV Driver Safety Office in San Diego.
