Avoid These Common Mistakes
Unfortunately, after being arrested, many people make serious mistakes that can negatively impact their case. The first mistake is not taking their charges seriously.
In addition, many individuals fail to request a hearing with the Division of Motor Vehicles within seven days of their DUI / DUID arrest in an attempt to keep their license. If you do not schedule this hearing, you will lose your license by default. In addition to representing you in a criminal proceeding, our DUI attorney can also help you fight to keep your license at this hearing.
