Alameda County DMV Hearings
Representation at DMV Hearings in Alameda County
The standard procedure in DUI arrests includes the automatic suspension of your driver's license. As the DMV is the only legal body that can suspend your license, law enforcement forwards the evidence of your impairment to the DMV in order to get your license suspended for varying lengths of time, depending upon the details of your case. You have only 10 days from the time of the arrest to request a DMV hearing in which an Alameda County DUI defense attorney can fight to avoid the suspension of your license. As the suspension takes place usually 30 days after the arrest and the hearing cannot take place within the 30 days, our legal team can seek to get an extension of your temporary license so that you can continue to drive while awaiting the hearing.
DMV Hearing Attorney in Alameda County
In a hearing at the DMV, it may be necessary to subpoena the arresting officer or officers to cross examine them in the hearing. There have been countless cases in which conflicting stories lead to a cancellation of the suspension of the license. In other cases, the evidence that will later be presented in court in the criminal case will be brought to the DMV hearing in order to show proof that you were either wrongly arrested through lack of probable cause or faulty evidence against you.
At The Law Office of Nors Davidson, we are very familiar with requesting and representing clients at DMV hearings and will carefully prepare the presentation for our client's advantage. Losing your driver's license is a very severe punishment, and in many cases the evidence proves that the case included violations of rights, faulty testing procedures or other errors that can lead to the ability to keep your license intact while preparing for the criminal case.
