Although DUIs (Driving Under the Influence charges) are less common with the rise of ride-sharing technology, they can still pose devastating impact on a person's life who gets arrested for this crime.
The process moves fast, as there must be a DMV hearing request made within the first 10 days after arrest to try to keep your license from being suspended. If this date passes, there is still a chance to re-open the DMV case, but it is more difficult and not guaranteed.
There will also be an arraignment date scheduled at the superior court. If you hire an attorney, we will appear on your behalf so you do not have to for this, and most future court dates, in most circumstances.
A skilled attorney help create a defense for you to fight your charges. There are many reasons why a DUI can be dismissed. Whether it was an unconstitutional stop, search, or arrest, the law enforcement officer must have done their job correctly and within the Constitutional limits, for the prosecutors to have a successful case. Even if the officers did their job correctly, there is scientific evidence that can be challenged and excluded from the evidence against you.
Only a thorough investigation by a skilled attorney can uncover these issues. Call JAFFREY LAW today for a free consultation for your case in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Inyo County, and others.
