Do Not Take Your DMV Hearing Lightly, the Risks Are Too High – Hire an Experienced DMV Hearing Attorney
Generally, only 8% of people arrested for a DUI request a DMV hearing in California. Of these 8%, however, 34% of them actually keep their driving privileges as a result of demanding such hearings. In addition, those with experienced attorneys win approximately 50% of these hearings.
Surprisingly, the reason these attorneys win so often has nothing to do with whether or not you actually refused a chemical test, or drove with an illegal level of alcohol in your system. Rather, it depends on the DMV’s dependence on paperwork, instead of live witnesses, in order to suspend your license.
Contrary to the information on the temporary license/notice of suspension provided to you, you do not have to prove that the suspension is not justified. Rather, the DMV has to prove that it is justified, and they try to do this without live witnesses through the introduction of police reports.
Often, such reports are defective in a way that is undetectable to someone that is not trained in the laws pertaining to DMV hearings. That is why retaining a skilled DMV lawyer may help you save your driving privilege.
