Palmdale DMV Hearings Lawyer
Guiding Our Clients Through DMV Hearings in California
If you were recently arrested for DUI and if you received notification that the DMV intends to take action against your driving privileges, then you must request an administrative hearing within 10 days of receiving personal service or within 14 days from the date the notice was mailed. If you do not make your request within the allotted time frame, your opportunity for a hearing will be forever lost.
Were you recently arrested for DUI? Call (800) 860-1383 to see how our defense attorneys can save your license and fight your charges!
The purpose of the administrative hearing is to provide you with the opportunity to present any relevant evidence or testimony on your behalf regarding an action or the intent to take action against your driving privileges by the DMV. You also have to appear in court in reference to your DUI charges; however, the DMV administrative hearing is a separate hearing and only addresses your driving privileges and not your criminal charges. All criminal proceedings are independent of any actions taken by the DMV to suspend your driving privileges.
TEAM UP WITH A LAWYER - KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING
At the administrative hearing you have the right to be represented by an attorney, but representation is not required; you have the right to review and cross-examine the testimony of any witness for the DMV; you have the right to present evidence and any relevant witnesses in your defense; and you have the right to testify on your own behalf. But since this is your driving license on the line, it's a wise idea to have a Palmdale criminal defense attorney from the Law offices of David M. Wallin represent you at the administrative hearing and any court hearings.
Also, if you are not satisfied with the DMV's decision regarding your case, you have the right to request a department review of the decision and you have the right to appeal the decision to superior court. When facing DUI charges and the loss of your driver's license, you could not only lose your mobility, but your livelihood by not being able to drive. You can fight your DUI charges; contact a Palmdale DUI lawyer from the Law Offices of David M. Wallin today.
