Drivers’ License Restoration
Help from a Proficient DUI Lawyer in Southern California
During a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest, law enforcement will generally confiscate your driver’s license in exchange for a pink piece of paper that will act as a temporary license. What not everyone who is arrested is made aware of is that you have exactly 10 days to schedule your Administrative Per Se Hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This hearing is vitally important because it could help prevent your license from being suspended. The transcript from this hearing will also be used in court, which could be a major benefit to you since it gives us a chance to question witnesses and arresting officers about your arrest details.
If you or someone you know has recently been arrested for DUI and had your license taken away, you should immediately talk with a competent Southern California DUI lawyer from our The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller. If you fail to contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest, you will lose your right to your hearing and your license will automatically be suspended.
Aggressively Fighting All Criminal Charges
When you are arrested for DUI, besides fighting to reinstate your driving privileges, you will have to fight the criminal charges you are facing as well.
There are many DUI penalties that can result from a conviction, such as:
- Prison or jail time
- Hefty fines
- Community service
- Court ordered alcohol classes or treatment
- Court ordered ignition interlock device
- Arrest, charges, and convictions on your legal record, which could wind up being permanent and ineligible in the future for DUI expungement
Do not put your future freedom into the hands of an inexperienced lawyer. You will be fighting one of the biggest fights of your life to be able to drive again and to keep yourself from being harshly penalized. If you are looking for a knowledgeable DUI attorney in Southern California that can provide a relentless defensive strategy, you should talk to us immediately.
