A Proven Leader in Challenging the DMV

Barry T. Simons has led the way in challenging the DMV with writs and appeals. In 1998, he established relaxed standards required at DMV hearings to challenge alcohol-testing procedures in DUI cases. In 1999, he forced the DMV to announce that they would cancel 4,700 drunk-driving suspensions after exposing the Orange County Crime Lab’s use of unapproved breath testing machines (Trautman v DMV).  In 2002, Mr. Simons exposed the O.C. Crime Lab’s use of unapproved Blood Testing methods between 1996-2002 (Bite v Gourley), which invalidated blood test suspensions for all of Mr. Simons’s clients during that entire period.
