  • California DMV v. ER

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Mar 15, 2010
    Outcome:
    Attorney Matt Wallin won my license back at DMV
    Description:
    Attorney Matt Wallin represented me after my California Driver’s License was suspended by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”). My driver’s license was suspended due to my diabetes (type 2). I was fortunate enough to meet with Attorney Matt Wallin who explained that the DMV may restrict, suspend or revoke the license of a driver for a medical reason such as: diabetes; diabetes mellitus; significant hypoglycemic event or episode; lapses of consciousness; dementia or memory loss; Alzheimer’s, etc. At the California DMV Hearing, Attorney Matt Wallin established that my diabetes does not impact my safe operation of a motor vehicle. Attorney Matt Wallin argued that my driver’s license should not be suspended because of a single significant low blood-glucose event that was reported to the DMV. He demonstrated to the DMV Hearing Officer that while hypoglycemia is an ongoing risk to some extent, safe driving is not because of my ability to recognize symptoms of low blood sugar events and take the necessary precautions to avoid hypoglycemia while driving. Attorney Matt Wallin was very compassionate and understood the importance of maintaining my driving privilege. Through his time and efforts, we were successful at the DMV Hearing and won my driver’s license back. The diabetes based suspension was ended (“set-aside”). Thank you Attorney Matt Wallin for your dedication and efforts with my case. -ER
