Why You Shouldn't Handle DMV Yourself

This is not a fair hearing, the Hearing Officer represents the Police Officer, the DMV Office, and is also the Judge. If you have me handle your hearing from requesting it to conclusion of the hearing, I may be able to help you keep your full driving privilege for 60 to 90 days despite your notice saying it ends in 30 days, and I may be able to save it for you completely. All too often, people contact me when they are getting ready to go to court because they donít understand these are two separate cases coming out of the same arrest, one is civil and that is the DMV, and the other is criminal where you go to court. I ask them if they have already contacted the DMV Driver Safety division for their hearing, and they say no I was going to do that at court. They did not read the ďPink Order of Suspension and Temporary LicenseĒ that says you have 10 days to request a hearing. So, they have defaulted and will lose their license from the DMV suspension. In many of these cases, I would have been able win their DMV case, and they would never have lost their driving privilege. Now, if they get caught driving on a suspended license, their car will be impounded, usually for 30 days and that cost about $1,000 to get your car back, and you now have a new criminal charge in addition to your DUI charge.

When the client calls the DMV for the hearing, they often call the wrong place, or if they do call the correct office, they are asked questions that are used against them; that is why you should have the lawyer contact the DMV for your hearing. You probably donít know about discovery, what it is, what you need, and how to get it from the DMV, so you are already at a disadvantage. Also, if you call for the appointment, they may lose your request and you have no proof that you made a request. Good lawyers fax the request to the DMV so there is a confirmation, and within the request is a demand for the needed discovery of evidence from the DMV that the lawyer will use to prepare your defense, and that allows the attorney to subpoena additional evidence to help the client. If your DUI was in the San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose Bay Area, call my office in a timely manner (within 10 days of your arrest), give me your information, and I will request your hearing for you to make sure you are doing it right, and that is whether you hire me or someone else. I donít want you to lose, so call me at 510-346-6666 or Toll Free at 1 (800) 690- 4DUI, and you will be glad you did.
