Got 2nd DUI in 4/2012 for Rx drugs, 1st alcohol 3/2007. Went to court yesterday plead not guilty, the PD I was approved for got the DA to not book me (i have not gone to jail for this yet) under a conditional release that I attend 3 aa a week until pretrail 9.7... I feel that I can have a good ruling with the right representation.. Can anyone suggest expert DUI attorneys in the OC CA area that will give a free evaluation and also accept payment plans, as I am a single mother who works full time, and can't afford to go to jail, lose my job and my child!
Obviously you are taking this very seriously - and getting consultations on this from private counsel is a great idea. Our office would be happy to offer you a free consult and I can recommend someone closer to you who works in the OC courts every day. Mark Gallagher at 714-757-1119
There are a lot more details I would need to know about your case, but Prescription drug cases can be defended well by experienced DUI attorneys. You are on the right track of at least consulting with one or two DUI attorneys on your case. I would be happy to speak to you about your case (over phone or at office, free consultation) and I do offer payment plans as well. I handle DUI cases in Orange County. If you preferred a DUI attorney who had their main office closer to where you live, I could give you a couple suggestions.

As my colleagues have indicated you are right to take this matter seriously. You want to make sure that you attend the AA and get your cards signed. The court will revoke your conditional release if you fail to attend the AA. Many of the judges in Orange County are willing to offer alternatives to a jail sentence. This will take effort both from you and an attorney.
