DMV Hearings Lawyer in Santa Clarita
After you are arrested for a DUI or driving under the influence of drugs, the DMV will automatically suspend your license. You have the right to request and attend a DMV hearing to challenge license suspension or revocation, and you also have the right to retain legal counsel to represent you at this hearing. The DMV hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the arrest, so it is important to act fast. It is possible for a DUI attorney to attend this hearing and present evidence for you to defend your legal right to drive, in an effort to avoid suspension. In some cases, the right action is to seek to obtain a restricted driver's license that allows you to drive to work, school and other allowed locations and functions. As we all know, living in the Santa Clarita area without a license makes life extremely difficult. Get in touch with our Santa Clarita DMV hearing lawyer who can schedule the hearing, represent you at the hearing, and also act for you in criminal court to defend you against the DUI charge. There are several issues that could allow you to retain your license, including an illegal police stop, errors in police procedure in the arrest, errors in breath, blood or field sobriety testing and others.
