Scheduling a DMV Hearing
About DMV Hearings
The prospect of having your driving privileges suspended or revoked can be a stressful experience. A good part of the population in the San Francisco area live a distance from work or school and depend on being able to drive to their destinations daily. Many people are unaware that the DMV continually holds hearings regarding suspensions and revocations for a variety of situations. Many of these hearings are held as a result of a DUI arrest where the person arrested has only 10 days to request a hearing in order to prevent the suspension which will otherwise automatically go into effect 30 days after the arrest. If you have been notified by the DMV of a hearing or are facing an automatic suspension because of a DUI arrest, you need the help of the legal team at Okabe & Haushalter who is experienced in fighting driver's license suspensions and revocations and DUI defense.
Avoid License Suspension
In a DMV hearing, an employee of the department acts much as a judge does in a court of law. He or she reviews the facts of the case to ensure that technically the facts warrant suspension or revocation. An experienced DMV hearing defense lawyer who understands the hearing procedure and the laws which apply to the case can question witnesses and present evidence which tells your side of the story. Our legal team has handled numerous suspension and revocation defenses, takes the time to analyze your case, and develop a strong defense strategy. We understand what a suspension can mean and work tirelessly to provide a defense calculated to obtain a positive outcome in DMV hearings concerning:
