Utah Division Of Motor Vehicles Hearings
After being arrested for DUI, the police officer will usually take away your license. At that time, you may qualify for a temporary license until your hearing. A hearing before the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles will then be scheduled within 30 days.
The hearing is a civil proceeding, not a criminal trial. Nevertheless, information gained from the hearing can prove useful on the criminal side of your case. David Pedrazas can represent you in this hearing, attempting to prevent the loss of your license and get the police to commit to certain facts that could be of use in your criminal case.
Do I Need An Attorney For A DMV Hearing?
You can certainly represent yourself in a DMV hearing. But by doing so, you could lose an important opportunity. DUI defense attorney David Pedrazas can question the arresting officer about the sequence of events leading to your arrest. In some cases, the information gained can be sufficient to get a DUI charge dropped or reduced to a non-alcohol driving offense.
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Always request a hearing and always bring a lawyer with you to that hearing. The Law Office of David Pedrazas, PLLC, stands ready to aggressively defend you at all stages of the legal process.
