Someone I know got a 3rd DUI in Orange County, California, while living and working in another county, and is considering moving back to Orange County and requesting a referral to DUI Court, to avoid jail time. He is self-employed, but has a studio he rents and where he works, including maintenance work on the building in exchange for part of his rent, in an adjacent county.

I am licensed attorney in Washington and California who focuses Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
