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:
- Arresting officer will present his evidence
- Officer may provide testimony
- The defense can decide to cross-examine the officer's testimony
- You can then present your own evidence and testimony
- Evidence, such as BAC test results, can be challenged
- 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.
