Attorney Helping You Maintain Your Driving Privileges
Before any penalties are imposed against you by the Division of Motor Vehicles, you will be entitled to a hearing. However, you must request this hearing within seven days of your arrest. If you do not request a hearing within that timeframe, you will waive the right to a hearing. It is in your best interests to request a hearing and have an experienced lawyer prepare you and appear with you.
Protecting You From The Collateral Consequences Of A DUI
In addition to criminal penalties and administrative penalties you face as a result of a DUI or other motor vehicle violation, you need to be aware of the collateral consequences of the charges against you. If you are a licensed professional, a criminal record could result in a suspension or revocation of your license and loss of livelihood. Our attorney is thorough in defending the rights of his clients and seeks all available options for winning cases at trial or reaching plea agreements that do not result in a criminal record.
