DUI Procedures: Criminal Court & License Suspension

When you are arrested for any DUI charge in the state, two separate legal actions will be started against you. The first is an administrative procedure regarding the suspension of your driving privileges. This is done by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), who has the authority to suspend your license for specified amounts of time. The second part of the legal process is the criminal court case against you. Both can be difficult to successfully navigate, especially when you are not familiar with the laws and procedures that apply.

The firm represents individuals who have been charged with DUI offenses including:

With the help of the firm, you can ask for a hearing with the DMV to challenge the suspension of your license. It must be done within a specific timeframe or you may lose your right to be heard. The firm prepares for these hearings for the purpose of preventing a lengthy suspension of your driving privileges and to allow your attorney to view the evidence that law enforcement has gathered.
