For many people charged with DUI or other serious traffic crimes in the Los Angeles area, protection of their driving privilege is a critical priority. The first thing to recognize is that you must act promptly — within 10 days after a DUI arrest and subsequent release— to schedule your DMV hearing and have any chance of avoiding an automatic license suspension or revocation.
At the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman, we take the pressure off your back and handle the scheduling your DMV hearing at no cost. This allows you to meet with us about engaging our services without the pressure imposed by the DMV deadline. We can then get right to work investigating and preparing your case based on your goals, recognizing that your livelihood and family well-being could well depend on your ability to drive.
Are You Prepared for a DMV Hearing for DUI Charges in Los Angeles?
The standard that applies in California courtrooms, “guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” does not have to be met for a DMV hearing officer to suspend your driver’s license. You will not be represented by a public defender when you appear for an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing after a DUI arrest or other type of DMV proceeding. Likely there are only three ways to successfully challenge the DMV’s case, and it is near impossible to do without an attorney. Our firm will seek to effectively challenge whether there was a legal stop, lawful arrest and whether you were in fact over the legal limit when stopped.
