You Only Have 10 Days to Act
After an arrest for allegedly driving under the influence (DUI), it is important that you act quickly to retain the legal counsel of a Modesto DUI attorney from Scott Mitchell Law Incorporated. Within ten days of your arrest, you will be scheduled for a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hearing. At this hearing, your driving privileges will be determined, and without the assistance of a lawyer, you may risk losing your license for an extended period of time.
When you work with our firm, however, we can help prepare you for your hearing and fight against your license suspension on your behalf. Our team will investigate every aspect of your case, including the evidence gathering and witness testimonials, and prepare a strong defense against your charges. Contact Scott Mitchell Law Incorporated today for the immediate help you need.
Your California DMV Hearing
Prior to the hearing, you will be provided with a notice of action that informs you of the DMV's wish to suspend your driving privileges. If you wish to contest the suspension or revocation, then you will need to schedule a DMV hearing. At the hearing, the results of the breath and blood test will be discussed as well as any chemical test evidence that was administered to you.
At this proceeding, the DMV will also determine if the arresting officer had probable cause to arrest you and that they were not in violation of any California Vehicle Code. If you refused a blood or breath test when requested by an officer, then the DMV must make sure that it was known to you that you would lose your license if you did not comply.
