If You have Been Arrested for a DUI The Clock on Your Case is Ticking
TEN DAYS . . . that is how much time you have to request a hearing with the DMV after a DUI arrest. The DMV is on countdown to revoking your license so there is no time “soon enough” to hire a DUI lawyer. If you fail to request your hearing within 10 days from the date of arrest, your license will be automatically suspended 30 days from the date of arrest. An experienced attorney can appear on your behalf at the DMV hearing as well as in Court, which will help save you time and money by keeping you working. The first step in fighting your DUI charge is to make sure your driving privileges are protected.

A DUI is a serious offense and the consequences could include jail time, loss of license, fines and fees, probation, mandatory treatment programs, alcohol testing, and installation of an ignition interlock device.
Acting quickly to protect yourself by hiring a DUI defense attorney is the most important thing you can do for yourself. A DUI lawyer knows the nuances of the Court system and is prepared to represent you both in Court and at the DMV hearing. Attorney Kellee Parker, the DUI Professor, handles each case individually and will personally appear in Court and represent you at the DMV hearing. Your case will not be passed down to a junior associate.
The Two Components Of Your Case
Following most DUI arrests, the arresting officer will confiscate the physical California driver’s license and issue an Administrative Per Se Suspension/Revocation Order & Temporary Driver License. Be aware that the temporary license is only good for 30-days, assuming you had a valid license at the time of arrest. You will retain full driving privileges for the 30 days following arrest; however, you need to act quickly to avoid automatic suspension when that time is up. As mentioned above, the DMV only gives you 10 days to act to protect your driving privileges. This makes it critical to hire a skilled DUI attorney to start the process of contacting the local Driver Safety Office to schedule an APS Hearing. Having an experienced DUI lawyer who understands California law and the details and requirements of the APS hearing will give you peace of mind and a much better chance at keeping your license. Call the DUI Professor today to get the representation that you deserve!
Now is the time to get educated regarding the offenses that could be charged against you. Chances are very high that you will be actually facing a minimum of two separate violations under the California Vehicle Code for driving under the influence.
California Vehicle Code Section 23152
Driving Under Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
23152 (a) It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle.
23152 (b) It is unlawful for any person who has a 0.08% or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.
The (a) count allows the State to charge a person with driving under the influence when there are signs of impairment. Many people do not realize that they can be charged with a DUI with a blood alcohol content under 0.08%. There are some toxicologists who believe that certain individuals can show signs of impairment at a blood alcohol content of 0.05%.
The (b) count is a per se law that states anyone found driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher is deemed under the influence, even if the person does not exhibit any signs of impairment.
A first offense DUI charge that does not result in any bodily injury is generally filed as a misdemeanor offense. The maximum punishment on a first offense includes a $1000 fine and 6 months in jail. A second and third DUI charge carries a maximum punishment of a $1000 fine in addition to 1 year in jail. A DUI which resulted in great bodily injury, having been convicted of a previous felony DUI, or being charged with a fourth DUI offense, will result in the matter being filed as a felony which could carry a punishment of several years in State prison.
In any of these cases, acting quickly to hire an attorney and understanding your rights could not be more critical. Contact Attorney Parker, the DUI Professor, today to get the individualized, compassionate legal representation that you deserve!
