Charged with your first DUI in Vista California - What Happens Next?

When you get arrested for DUI, you actually have two cases, one with the court and one with the DMV. You are given a Court date when you bail out. However, if you do not read the pink suspension notice and temporary 30 day license given to you, you do not realize that the DMV must be contacted within 10 days in order to challenge your automatic license suspension. That is why it is important to get an experienced Vista DUI lawyer involved as quickly as possible to set the DMV hearing and get a 60 day temporary license pending hearing results. Generally, the attorney can not only schedule the hearing, but appear at that hearing and in Court without you. As experienced DUI attorneys who have handled more than 3,000 DUI cases, we know what to do, what to look for, and how to get the best resolution in your particular case. It doesn't cost anything to call us at 760-659-2149 for a free consultation. We give you a realistic appraisal, explain the proceedings, provide the highest level of experienced personal representation, save you time, lost work and help relieve the anxiety that comes with being charged in a criminal case.
