California is one of the most aggressive states when it comes to prosecuting DUI cases. You are unlikely to win your DUI case or get the best possible result in your case if you do not hire an experienced DUI attorney.
Under Vehicle Code § 23152(a)(b), driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol is a serious criminal offense. The punishment for a DUI conviction may result in substantial jail time and severe fines. Being arrested for a DUI is just the beginning of the long process.
Other than the criminal case you will face, you must also answer to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), who will attempt to suspend or revoke your driving privilege. It is important to speak to an aggressive DUI attorney if you are facing a DUI charge.
A DMV hearing is an administrative process that is distinct from the criminal charges. If you do not schedule a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest, your license will be suspended.
Contact Attorney John Carelli to secure your driving privilege from being suspended by DMV.
