YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOSE YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE BECAUSE OF A DUI
If you are over 21 and didn’t refuse to take a breath or blood test you can qualify to avoid a suspension of your drivers license
If you were arrested for an alcohol related DUI offense after 1/1/2019 you may be able to avoid any license suspension by the Court AND DMV. It doesn’t matter if you are a multiple offender or even if you were on probation at the time. You can even avoid a suspension if you injured someone while you were DUI. Under this new law, you can drive anywhere and at any time. You are no longer stuck with a restriction that only allows you to drive to and from work, in the course of your employment and to and from your alcohol program. You can regain your privilege to drive anywhere, at any time by following the steps necessary to obtain an Ignition Interlock devise on your car. An experienced DUI lawyer can guide you through the necessary steps to obtain an IID restriction and can also advise when, and if it is appropriate in your case to do so. You don’t have to give up your right to a DMV Hearing to contest the suspension nor do you have to give up you right to fight your case in Court. You are entitled to a stay on the suspension of your license by the DMV while you and your DUI lawyer evaluate your case. You have the right to subpoena evidence including police video tapes at the DMV Hearing. You also can subpoena police officers and experts from the crime lab and can contest your arrest and the results of your chemical test.
WARNING: You may receive unsolicited communications from Ignition Interlock salespersons or insurance brokers who will attempt to advise you. They are not lawyers, you should consult a lawyer who specializes in DUI Defense within 10 days of your arrest to insure that you receive proper advise.
