DMV Hearings in Denver

Experienced DUI Defense Attorney

Even if you have been wrongfully charged with DUI, you will still need to take serious legal action to protect your reputation and your driving status. There are two different proceedings you will need to prepare for. Most people just think of the criminal case, which typically involves prosecution, a jury, and a judge. The second matter is the DMV hearing, also known as the administrative license revocation hearing.

If you refused to submit to a breath or blood test, you may have your license revoked or suspended by the DMV if you do not show up to your hearing and effectively argue your case. While many people think they can prove their innocence on their own, they show up to their hearings poorly prepared. You risk losing your license for up to nine months if you do not have the right legal strategy!

Prepare for Your Hearing Today

You will only have seven days following your arrest to schedule a hearing to contest your license revocation, so do not delay in retaining experienced counsel. The DMV hearing is held to determine whether or not your license will be suspended or revoked.

The following will happen at the hearing:

  1. Arresting officer will present his evidence
  2. Officer may provide testimony
  3. The defense can decide to cross-examine the officer's testimony
  4. You can then present your own evidence and testimony
  5. Evidence, such as BAC test results, can be challenged
  6. The hearing officer will rule to revoke your license or return it

Your attorney can also make a motion to suppress unfair evidence at this time if you believe it violates your rights in any way. Keep in mind that if you are charged with a second or subsequent DUI offense, you may be facing a license revocation of a year or more.

Do not wait to get the experienced and qualified legal representation you need during this challenging time. Contact the Denver DUI attorney from the Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna today.
