Save Your Driver’s License
If you have been arrested for DUI in the last 10 days, failure to act now guarantees that you will either have to stop driving entirely or get an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in your vehicle after the first. Notifying the DMV of your desire to contest the legality of the suspension will extend the temporary license until the DMV has decided whether the suspension is lawful. If you need a Santa Barbara DUI attorney, contact the Law Offices of William C. Makler to save your driver’s license.
A skilled DUI defense lawyer can sometimes beat the license suspension even if the BAC is very high. Many police officers, laboratory personnel and health professionals who may be involved with the testing of blood and breath for alcohol are either poorly trained or choose not to apply their training in certain important respects.
Whatever you do, don’t try to judge what your chances of success are at a DMV hearing on a DUI-related suspension. You should talk with a lawyer who frequently represents people at DMV hearings, and wins, before the initial 10 days have lapsed.
