DUI Attorney in Seal Beach CA
Avoid double license suspensions with help from your DUI attorney in Seal 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. You’re probably really worried about how you’re going to get to work and take care of you family without the ability to drive.
Fortunately for you…
Michael L. Fell will fight to get your license back as your DUI attorney in Seal Beach CA.
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. The good news is, you do not have to go through either process alone. As your DUI attorney in Seal Beach CA, Michael L. Fell can represent your rights and interests in interactions with the DMV and the courts and fight aggressively for you to keep your license.
Request Your DMV Administrative Hearing Now
The first step in the fight to keep your license following a DUI is requesting an administrative hearing with the DMV. You only have 10 days to place your request. If you miss your window of opportunity, the administrative suspension of your license will automatically go into effect once your temporary license expires, and you will not be able to drive for at least 4 months.
Don’t let the fact that a DMV administrative hearing is not a criminal proceeding trick you into believing you can go without an attorney! In reality, it is very important to have a skilled DUI attorney in Seal Beach CA like Michael L. Fell on your side.
