Receiving a DUI charge in Fremont can be both a terrifying and stressful experience, to say the least. Unlike other criminal offenses, drinking and driving offenses can be committed by just about anyone and the general public as well as the media can be relentless in creating a negative stereotype for those who have been arrested for a DUI. After being arrested, you might have lost your job, your license, your citizenship, if applicable, and other freedoms that you once enjoyed.
To make matters worse, there is a common cycle of misinformation that circulates for DUI arrestees that can cause you to make the worst decisions for you and your family despite having good intentions. In times like these, you need to speak with a respected, skilled DUI attorney who not only has the right information that they can give you but also point you in the right direction so that you can make the right choices. The Ticket Crushers law firm has 40+ years of combined experience assisting countless drunk drivers with their cases and has in-depth knowledge of the DUI process.
What Will Happen To My Driver’s License After DUI?
Once you have been arrested for a DUI, a few things will occur. The arresting officer will take away your license, issue you a temporary license, and then, they will issue you a pink slip of paper with some important information on it. On the pink slip, it will tell you that you have a period of 30 days to drive freely but afterwards, your driver’s license will be suspended. At this point, some individuals are defeated and believe that once their license has been confiscated that the only way to get it back is after going to court and pleading guilty. However, this isn’t the case and you still have an opportunity to get your license back but you only have a period of 10 days to do so.
After you have been arrested, you will have 10 days to request a DMV hearing to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license. The DMV does not accept any excuses or reasons why you weren’t able to schedule a hearing so this part of the DUI process is vital to the success of your case. If you are unsure about how the DMV hearing process goes, then it is recommended that you get in touch with a qualified DUI lawyer who have extensive knowledge of how DMV hearings work. The Ticket Crushers law firm provides aggressive legal representation for our clients and can assist you with your case.
What Can I Do To Assist With My Case?
There are a few things that you can do to help us streamline the DUI process and assist you with your case. However, much of this would be best handled by one of our DUI lawyers to ensure that everything goes smoothly. On the other hand, there is one crucial item that would greatly benefit our strategy that you can provide. On the day of your arrest, try to document everything that had occurred including the duration of your arrest. Make sure to record everything you can remember, even if you were intoxicated and your memory is poor.
This will allow us to compare it to the arresting officer’s story so that we can find inconsistencies and use this to our advantage. Make note of what was said, who said it, actions by you and the officer, and other relevant details. Being unable to remember what occurred can cost you greatly in your case as this information is vital to having the opportunity to reach a non-guilty verdict or a dismissal of your case. At Ticket Crushers law, we sympathize with your situation and understand how difficult it can be. Our sole desire is to help you with your case and reach the best possible outcome for your DUI.
