Tulare Suspended License Lawyer

In California, charges for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs must be addressed at both the criminal and administrative levels. Under the law, individuals have 30 days from the date of arrest to request a Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearing to protect their driving privileges. This process is completely separate from challenging or fighting your charges in criminal court. Unfortunately, many people ignore the administrative processes and place their rights and futures in jeopardy.

Don't wait another minute.  Contact a qualified defense attorney today at 559-302-9507 to initiate a DMV hearing.

90-Day Administrative Suspensions

The Law Office of  Gregory Hagopian provides comprehensive  drunk driving defense including representation at DMV hearings. The firm is directed by attorney Hagopian, a former prosecutor who understands the criminal and administrative processes. He will request a hearing when timing permits and fight to protect your privileges.

The hearing involves your attorney, the officer who charged you and a DMV official who presides over the hearing. Under the following situations, you may be able to prevent a suspension:

  • If the police officer fails to attend the hearing
  • If your stop and/or arrest were unlawful
  • If the DMV official is convinced you were not impaired

If you do not request a DMV hearing within 30 days, you will lose your right to a DMV hearing by default and face a mandatory 90-day driver's license suspension. Attorney Hagopian can pursue an administrative restricted license, which would enable you to drive to and from work, school and your children's school.

It is important that you consult with a Visalia DMV hearings attorney to protect your driving privileges. Under state law, even if you are acquitted of your criminal charges or found not guilty, you would still have to abide by an administrative suspension.
