Santa Barbara Criminal Lawyer & DUI Attorney - San Luis Obispo DUI Lawyer

We understand that being charged with a DUI or other crime and needing to search for a criminal defense lawyer in Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo can be a very stressful and anxious time.  Accordingly, we do all that we can to make the process smoother and to achieve the optimal outcome.  Led by a former California Deputy District Attorney and Professor of Criminal Law, the Law Offices of William M. Aron have the necessary experience and expertise to ensure that you receive the best criminal defense attorney possible.  While you're always welcome to attend court with us, we normally file motions to exclude your presence at court, so that you experience minimal disruption in your daily life while your case is pending.  Below, you will find some substantive information about DUIs as well as a list of many common California crimes that we can assist with as your Santa Barbara / San Luis Obispo DUI or criminal defense attorney.  



DUI cases can be very complex and  do not always involve alcohol.  They may revolve around marijuana, prescription medications, or other drugs.   A California DUI defense consists of a criminal court proceeding with a criminal record, jail time, and fines at stake.  The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) proceeding is separate and determines if your driver's license will be suspended.   You must request a DMV hearing with the DMV within 10 days of your arrest or you will lose your right to a hearing.  

A DUI may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony and is sometimes associated with more serious criminal charges. The most common DUI charges are Vehicle Code Section 23152(a) and Vehicle Code Section 23152(b).  A conviction of either CVC 23152(a) or CVC 23152(b) will have the same effect.  There are many DUI defenses that may lead to dismissal of the charges or conviction of a lesser charge.  When in need of a DUI attorney in Santa Barbara or San Luis Obipso, it is best to contact one immediately to ensure that you will have the best chance of obtaining the optimal outcome.  Please contact us for a free DUI attorney consultation in Santa Barbara or San Luis Obipso.

In ther interim, feel free to explore our DUI drink wheel; however, please be sure to note our the disclaimer below.


DUI Drink Wheel
On-Line BrAC Calculator
I have had
over a period of hour(s)2.
I am Male Female (Explanation of gender differences in Blood
Alcohol Concentration)and I weigh Pounds Kilograms and
I live in (so that the result is displayed in the appropriate units).


It would be extremely foolish for us to pretend that our "Drink Wheel" can tell you what your BAC is exactly, largely because it would open us up to an incredible amount of potential liability.

A person's actual BAC is dependent on many complex factors, including their physical condition (body composition, health etc...) and what they have recently ingested (including food, water, medications and other drugs). If you'd like more information, please research a more detailed discussion of the Pharmacology and Disposition of alcohol in humans.

The results that are generated are rough estimates of an average healthy person's BAC assuming typical beverage sizes, recipes and alcohol content. The BAC estimates generated by the Drink Wheel should not be used to infer anyone's fitness to work, drive or perform any other task or duty.
