Challenge Automatic License Suspension At Your DMV Hearing
Being arrested for a DUI can be pretty upsetting. However, you can take comfort from the fact that you won’t be punished without a fair trial. Or will you?
Here’s the really upsetting part of a DUI arrest:
Following a DUI arrest, the DMV can suspend your license without a hearing, and the suspension will remain in effect even if the DUI charge is later dropped or if you plead out on a lesser charge in the criminal proceeding. To Prevent an Unfair DMV Suspension, Hire a DMV Hearing Attorney.
Fighting A License Suspension
The DMV license suspension can be challenged, but only if you request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your DUI arrest. An experienced DMV hearing legal team like the one at The Mattern Law Firm can help you request your hearing and also prepare evidence to present at the hearing that will cast doubt on the validity of the DUI charge and therefore on the validity of enforcing the license suspension.
Some possible strategies your DMV hearing lawyer in Los Angeles CA may employ include:
- Showing that any incriminating evidence was collected unlawfully
- Arguing that the police have insufficient evidence to prove you were even driving
- Showing that breathalyzer tests or field sobriety tests were administered improperly
- Presenting evidence that a medical condition could have caused an incorrect breathalyzer reading
You may wonder:
Should I Still Schedule A DMV Hearing If I’m Sure I Will Be Convicted of a DUI?
The answer is YES! First of all, you should never assume you can’t win your DUI case.
Secondly, you should always pursue a DMV hearing because it essentially provides your attorney with a preview of the prosecution’s criminal case against you. Having this opportunity to review and challenge evidence, hear the testimony of the arresting officer, and cross examine witnesses can help your attorney prepare a much stronger defense for your criminal trial.
