DUI Attorney in Newport Beach CA

Avoid double license suspensions with help from your DUI attorney in Newport Beach CA

One of the most frustrating things about a DUI is that the arresting officer can take your drivers license and leave you with a temporary license that will expire in 30 days. This can be a serious hardship since relatively few Californians live within walking distance of work or public transportation.

Fortunately for you…

As your DUI attorney in Newport Beach CA, Michael L. Fell can help you get your drivers license back.

Attorney Fell Can Help You Avoid a Double License Suspension

Are you wondering how a police officer can take your license without a trial? The answer is that the police officer is enforcing an administrative suspension for the DMV. The criminal portion of your case will come later and could result in an additional license suspension penalty. Fortunately, Michael L. Fell understands both procedures in detail. As your DUI attorney in Newport Beach CA, he can fight aggressively to give you the best possible chance of preventing unfair punishment by the DMV and the criminal justice system.

Request Your DMV Administrative Hearing Now

If you have been arrested for a DUI, you need to act now and request an administrative hearing to challenge the DMV suspension of your license. This must be done within 10 days of your DUI, or you will lose the right to a hearing and an administrative suspension of at least 4 months will automatically go into effect.

As your DUI attorney in Newport Beach CA, Michael L. Fell can help you request and prepare for your hearing. Attorney Fell has handled countless DMV hearings and he knows exactly what needs to be proven in order to convince the DMV not to enforce the automatic suspension.

…What If I Failed a Breathalyzer? Do I Still Need a DUI Attorney in Newport Beach CA?

Absolutely. Breathalyzer evidence can be challenged in a variety of ways. For example, if the test was not administered properly or the equipment was not calibrated correctly, the results of the test can be questioned. If the evidence cannot be challenged, your DUI attorney in Newport Beach CA can still protect your interests by negotiating with the DA for a favorable plea deal.

In some cases, the evidence is too strong and abundant to deny and you may end up facing DMV and criminal penalties. If this happens, Attorney Fell will work hard to make sure the penalties run concurrently so you can get your license back sooner.
