Time is of the essence when you are arrested for DUI. The DMV will automatically suspend your driving privilege 10 days after your arrest if you do not call to request a stay of your suspension and request a hearing. Call today, and Pat Carey will have an immediate stay placed on your license and personally handle your DMV hearing for you in an attempt to make sure your license is never suspended. Initially, by requesting a stay and hearing, you get to keep driving unless and until the DMV proves your guilt at the hearing. Some people believe a lawyer can be a waste of money, but Pat Carey has proven time and time again that spending your money on a skilled lawyer can save you thousands in court and can potentially save you from losing your license for an extended period of time.
With your DUI, as mentioned above, you will technically have two cases: one with the DMV, one in court. They are separate proceedings, but do overlap. For example, if you are convicted of a DUI in court in Los Angeles County, the DMV will add a condition that you install an “ignition interlock device” in your car. Also, if you defeat the DMV at the hearing, but you are later convicted in court, the DMV will still suspend your license based on your court conviction. The only way to properly work through this issues is to hire a Certified Criminal Law Specialist who knows his way around Court as well as the DMV. That person is Pat Carey. In addition to hundreds of successfully negotiated cases, our office is NOT afraid to go to trial. Pat has taken 65 cases to a jury and has unmatched experience to those in his field.
