  • I have a refusal hearing scheduled at the DMV. A paralegal has offered to represent me for free. Is this ok?

    I guess my question is can a paralegal represent me at a DMV refusal hearing? Or do I have to have a lawyer admitted to the bar?

    No, you must have an attorney licensed to practice law represent you at the hearing. Further, in addition to fighting the refusal (which can result in a one year revocation of your driver's license) you can obtain valuable information at a DMV hearing for your criminal case at the DMV hearing so you must have an attorney who is experienced handling this matter for you.
