Pavlich Law always closely examines issues of law and aggressively seek to exclude evidence whenever possible. Pavlich Law will initiate discussions with the prosecutor in an attempt to persuade the District Attorney’s office to drop the charge, agree to a lesser charge where appropriate, or an alternative outcome which avoids a criminal record. If necessary, we will argue your case forcefully in court to obtain a not guilty verdict.

If you have been arrested on a criminal charge, in Santa Ana, Tustin, Anaheim, Fullerton, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Laguna Hills, Villa Park, Yorba Linda, Brea, Orange, Anaheim Hills, Stanton, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Buena Park, Westminster, Garden Grove, Cypress, Placentia, Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, Leucadia, Encinitas, San Bernardino, Corona, Norco, Riverside, Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill, Wilmington, San Pedro, Bellflower, Cerritos, Torrance, or Los Angeles County, we can help you. Pavlich Law will work tenaciously to assist you in a positive outcome.

A Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge requires immediate action!  Failure to act immediately can result in a loss of your license and a criminal record!

Do not delay in contacting our offices!  Pavlich Law has experience representing clients in DUI related charges in Court, and has also represented clients during Department of Motor Vehicle Administrative Suspension Hearings.   These hearings have deadlines! It is extremely important not to delay in contacting Pavlich Law following an arrest for DUI, as there is a strict 10-day deadline to contest this automatic suspension.


Penalties for a DUI conviction are extensive and increases with prior DUI convictions. The long list of penalties include jail time, probation, heavy fines and fees, driver license suspension, ignition interlock device installation, DUI class attendance, not too mention the increase in costs to your auto insurance policy for the next 7-10 years.

Additionally, the Orange County District Attorney’s office is administering their own DNA collection database.  This is NOT a California State requirement.  You should discuss this option with your attorney.


There are strict requirements for Law Enforcement to adhere when conducting Field Sobriety Tests, as well as strict procedures involved during breathalyzer tests and blood tests.  There are numerous ways that Law Enforcement officers routinely fail to adhere to the necessary steps which can result in false positive test results.  Pavlich Law is experienced at ensuring that all applicable defenses to DUI charges are raised to ensure that the best results, including dismissal of charges, are obtained for the firm’s clients.


“Life is not a 9-5 shift, and Pavlich Law will never treat clients facing criminal charges like they only exist during ‘normal working hours’.  Criminal charges come when we least expect them.  Pavlich Law is always available to help in these matters.  Pavlich Law fights for their clients to achieve the best possible result in the case. Not everything is always as it initially appears, and Pavlich Law knows that officers’ reports never tell the whole story.  This is what client focused legal representation looks like, and this is the philosophy to which Pavlich Law adheres.”
