What Happens To My Driver’s License Once I’ve Been Charged With A DUI?
Attorney Myles Berman explains there are two attacks on a person’s driver’s license once they are arrested for a DUI. One is administratively and that is through the DMV. There are different terms of suspensions depending on the nature of the allegations, be it a first offense, a first offense refusal or a second offense, a second offense refusal etc. the other attack is a suspension based on the type of conviction that occurs in court. There are different levels of suspension there as well that the DMV would impose based on what type of conviction occurred in court and the courts admit the records to the Department of Motor Vehicles. That’s why it is extremely important that they call us right away so that we can protect the client’s privileges in California which brings up another issue.
Oftentimes, California has a lot of visitors from other states come here, either they move here but they don’t change their California driver’s license for various reasons or they are visiting Disneyland or visiting family members, Sea World and other tourist attractions like Hollywood. There are many tourist attractions here in Southern California. So it’s important that they also contact an attorney right away because what happens in California could impact their home state driver’s license as well. There are many possible scenarios and DUI defense is complicated, both the law as well as the science as well as the procedures and it could be a maze for people to become very overwhelmed very quickly.
We are very experienced in this and have been for a number of decades which is why it is very important for people to get a hold of us right away. Contact Top Gun DUI Defense attorney Myles L. Berman serving clients throughout Southern California and he will represent you with the care and attention you expect.
