One of the first and most important parts of your defense against your DUI charges will be the DMV Hearing, which must be schedule within 10 days of your arrest, or risk losing your license for an extended period of time. When arrested for DUI, your license will be taken away by the police officer, who will then provide you with a temporary license that is only good for 30 days. The notice provided with the temporary license advises you that the suspension goes into effect after the 30 days unless there is some change based on your DMV Hearing. It is therefore vital to consult with a DUI Defense attorney immediately after your arrest, as the timing is crucial to scheduling your DMV Hearing and presenting your defense to them to avoid your license suspension.
At the DMV Hearing, our legal team from the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens will aggressively interview the police officer regarding the arrest and breathalyzer test procedure in order to challenge any evidence which can keep you from retaining your license.

Other witnesses on your behalf can be brought it to the Hearing as well. Our offices pride ourselves on our success rate at DMV hearings, as we have developed a workable strategy with a good success rate.
