When it comes to a DUI in California, you need to act quickly after your arrest. A DUI conviction may carry heavy fines, suspended or revoked drivers license, high insurance rates, and/or jail time.
But there may be more hope than you think. DUIs often carry with them procedural, Constitutional, and arresting officer errors and inaccuracies. From a lack of probable cause for pulling you over to flawed field sobriety testing to inaccurate or “cut and paste” officer reports to noncalibrated or malfunctioning testing devices, a diligent and relentless advocate like Aaron Meyer must explore all details to attack your DUI charges.
First, before the criminal case, the DMV will immediately put the wheels in motion to suspend or revoke your license, whether you submitted to breath or chemical tests or not. You do have the right to request a “DMV Hearing,” but it must be within 10 days of your receipt of the suspension or revocation “order,” which is typically 10 days from your release from custody. You have the right to lawyer representation in this Administrative Hearing.
Although you may be embarrassed and afraid after your DUI arrest, your outlook may be better than you think. Most first time offenders and those not involving accident or injury are able to resolve their case without an actual DUI criminal conviction. Regardless, Aaron Meyer will analyze all angles of your case, pursuing the possible errors and defenses that often exist in DUI charges, before recommending that we consider any negotiated outcomes.
Aaron Meyer Law handles DUI charges and DMV hearings in Orange County, Los Angeles County, San Diego County, Riverside County, or in the military.
Do not just give up and accept a plea out of fear or intimidation after an embarrassing DUI arrest. Make sure you have an aggressive advocate who wont settle for “good enough.” The battle can be difficult, long, or uphill, but there can be hope when you have a lawyer doing everything possible to protect you.
