What About My License?
The DMV can, and likely will, suspend your license unless you take affirmative action to contest the administrative suspension and the criminal DUI charge in court.
How Does The DMV Hearing Work?
YOUR LAWYER MUST CONTACT THE DMV WITHIN 10 DAYS OF YOUR ARREST AND REQUEST A HEARING TO CONTEST THE SUSPENSION OF YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE.
Failure to request a hearing within 10 days will forfeit your opportunity to challenge this suspension. Your attorney will be able to push your hearing date back to ensure that you are prepared for your DMV case.
Will I Have To Go To Court?
While almost any defense lawyer can appear on your behalf in court, having the best attorneys present to protect your interests can make a world of difference. In misdemeanor cases, our clients rarely need to appear in court at all.
Will I Have To Go To Jail?
California DUI laws are some of the toughest in the nation. However, there are many alternatives to jail. Having a creative and innovative defense team that is familiar with and well reputed in the local courts is likely to reduce the severity of penalties, including harsh jail sentences.
What Will I Have To Pay In Legal Fees?
The amount you pay for a lawyer depends on the quality of that lawyer’s experience, the details of your case and how you choose to have the lawyer handle it. The fee should be reasonable and not excessive. Each case is unique. Each court is different. Fees will vary depending on the case. Only a lawyer familiar with the courts, the prosecutors and the possible defenses can ensure that you don’t get ripped off! Your questions should always be answered and your fees affordable.
