When a DUI Leads to Driver's License Suspension

Oceanside Driver's License Suspension Attorney

*** 2019 Update ***

Please see latest blog post on 2019 DUI license suspension law changes.

If you are arrested for DUI in California, the state will file a criminal DUI case against you, and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin an administrative proceeding against you to suspend your driving privileges. Your driver's license could be automatically suspended unless you request an administrative hearing within 10 days of your arrest.

But how do you request a hearing? And what do you look for in the reports? What do you do at the hearing once it's been scheduled? We can help. Over the last 45+ years, the attorneys at Christoph Law Offices servicing Vista, Oceanside, Escondido, San Marcos, Encinitas, and Carlsbad have handled more than 4,000 Driving Under the Influence cases, from first offenses to prior DUI offenses (in the past 10 years), felony DUIs with multiple priors, DUI with accident or injury and DUI manslaughter.
