DUI / DMV MATTERS
Getting arrested for driving under the influence is more than just an inconvenience or embarrassment. A DUI conviction can have far-reaching ramifications, resulting in a tarnished reputation and employment obstacles, not to mention a permanent stain on your background checks. DUI cases can also impact any family law cases you may be involved in such as divorce or child custody.
Challenging a DUI can be an intimidating task for the uninitiated. In California, a DUI arrest results in automatic suspension of your driver’s license unless you oppose the suspension within 10 days. This short time frame requires swift action. As a result, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible following your arrest.
