Representation for DMV Hearings in Solano County
Fairfield DUI Defense Attorneys
One of the most important elements of a DUI case is the DMV hearing. When a person is arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the police will confiscate their driver's license, which will then automatically be suspended in 30 days unless the driver contests their license suspension at a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. It is very important that this hearing is scheduled within 10 days of the driver's arrest. Those drivers who fail to schedule a hearing within the 10-day period will lose their right to a hearing altogether, and their license will automatically be suspended for anywhere from 3 months to one year, regardless of the outcome of their criminal case.

An experienced DMV hearing lawyer can ensure all aspects of your case are addressed appropriately, and that the necessary defense strategies are utilized to increase your chances of winning back your driver's license. This might include contesting an unlawful police stop, challenging field sobriety test results or breath or blood test results, or motioning to dismiss evidence obtained during an unlawful search and seizure.
