Understanding the Legal Process You Need a DUI Attorney That Gets Results On Your Side

The Legal Process After a DUI Arrest

Our San Diego DUI defense lawyer stands by you.

If you are stopped by law enforcement for suspicion of driving under the influence, you will be subjected to a field sobriety test, blood/breath test or possibly both if the evidence does not clearly show you were under the influence. If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests above 0.08% you will be arrested and your driver's license will be taken from you at that time.

It is strongly advised that you retain the services of a San Diego DUI attorney at this point in order for him to get the best possible results for you. The sooner your lawyer enters the case, the higher the possibility for a successful defense.

Your Civil and Criminal Cases

There are two government bodies involved in a DUI: the DMV and the court. A skilled DUI lawyer will be able to greatly assist you in both. Once you have been arrested, you have 10 days to schedule a DMV hearing to fight suspension of your driver's license. You will want a skilled negotiator to present your case in this hearing to improve your chances of a waiver of suspension. If you fail to request a hearing within 10 days of your arrest, your license will automatically be suspended in 30 days.

Completely separate from the DMV hearing is a court hearing where you will be formally charged with the DUI and you will then make your plea of guilty or not guilty. At this stage, an experienced and well-versed DUI lawyer will move to suppress any evidence illegally obtained or move for a dismissal or reduction in charges if possible.

If the matter moves forward from here, there will be a trial. A proficient trial lawyer will present your case professionally and challenge the prosecutor's evidence at every turn.
