If you have been arrested for DUI, it is important that you take immediate action. You have only 10 days from the date of the arrest to contest the administrative suspension of your license. If you have never dealt with DMV for an administrative review hearing, the best way to simulate the experience is to go try to have a conversation with a brick wall. The hearing officers are trained to uphold the driver's license suspension that you are facing. Having an attorney experienced in handling these matters is the best way to have a fighting chance. There are defenses to an administrative suspension and I will explore and argue all such defenses in an attempt to save your driver's license.
Many times, these defenses are of a technical nature. This is most common in cases involving breath testing machines. The Department of Motor Vehicles at an administrative review hearing is required to consider the accuracy of the machine and must have supporting documents in the record. If not, your suspension should be overturned. Sometimes, the defenses are not as technical and can be something as simple as errors in the paperwork submitted by the arresting officer or even the officer's failure to appear for the hearing. In either of these instances, the suspension should be overturned and you are likely to get your license back.
Even if not successful in the administrative hearing, it often can provide valuable insight into the case against you that can help me as I prepare your criminal case.
