At the Law Offices of Paul S. Geller we provide outstanding DUI resources, advice and representation to clients facing DUI (driving under the influence charges) in Barstow, California. DUI is a very serious offense and if convicted a person may be sentenced to very severe DUI penalties. It is our advice to you that if you or a loved one faces DUI charges that you speak to a qualified Barstow DUI lawyer immediately.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can result in a DUI accident causing very serious injuries and even death to other drivers, passengers or pedestrians. For this reason, California has several laws in place in an attempt to stop this type of behavior. If a person is caught, law enforcement will ask to administer a field sobriety test, breath and blood test. If a person fails law enforcement will immediately confiscate a person’s driver’s license and place them under arrest for DUI.
Following a DUI arrest, a person only has up to 10 days to schedule a DMV Hearing. If they do not schedule a DMV Hearing then the Department of Motor Vehicles can automatically suspend their driver’s license for a minimum of 90 days. A person would still be expected to appear at the criminal court case and even if they are found not guilty, or all charges are dropped, the suspension would still remain in effect.
The best stance a person may have to protect their driving privileges and future would be to hire a Barstow DUI lawyer right from the start. A Barstow DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Paul S. Geller can schedule a DMV Hearing on you or a loved one’s behalf if you have been place under arrest or charged with DUI.
