Get your life back. Hire the Best DUI Attorneys in the Bay Area: Bair Legal

If you are convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you may face significant fines, California driver license suspension, and other potentially devastating penalties.

Before you make any decision or take any action that might affect the rest of your life, talk to a specialist DUI attorney at Bair Legal. We can help.

Read why you need a DUI attorney.

To delay and possibly prevent the suspension of your driver's license, you need to request a California DMV Administrative Hearing.

10 Day DMV Request

OK, now you have been arrested, you’re looking at the internet to find out…what’s next? My hope with this site is to provide answers. Before you go searching for how much jail will I do? Will I lose my license? And other questions, take a minute and look at that pink piece of paper that is now your driver’s license.

About two thirds of the way down, in the fine print you will read, “YOU HAVE 10 DAYS FROM RECEIPT OF THIS NOTICE TO REQUEST A HEARING…” What does this mean? It means you need to get a DMV hearing request on file within 10 days of your arrest. If you don’t do this, your license will be suspended automatically “30 days from the issue date.”

This is truly the only “deadline” you face over the next few days, after the request is on file you can interview lawyers and decide how best to proceed with the defense of your case. If you decide to hire a lawyer after the 10-day period has expired, and you didn’t make the hearing request, you have likely lost the right to have your license suspension prevented when your pink temporary license expires. Don’t let this happen, call me, let me help you.
