After an arrest for DUI, you only have 10 days to file for a hearing with the DMV to fight the suspension of your license. A hearing will grant you an extension of your driver’s license (hardship license) and may result in the return of your full license.
To discuss your options if you're facing DUI, or Driving under the influence, charges, visit our Appointments page to schedule a consultation.
There are multiple approaches to defending a DUI case and all of them need to be explored carefully. In some counties, you may be eligible for a diversion program that will ultimately result in a dismissal.
Motions to suppress evidence such as an illegal stop of your car, improperly-given field sobriety exercises, or a lack of probable cause for your arrest, may result in a reduction of the charges (reckless driving) or dismissal. An expert can be retained to rebut the officer’s testimony or to fight the breath test result in your case.
