I would want to apply for a RDP. I have 3 DUI on record that happened back in 2012 almost at the same time with a week and a month difference between each other. I have over gone all the treatments and aftercare. Also, two statutory summary suspensions were rescind, thus, i have only one in effect. Here's also a question: does the statutory summary suspension period start on the 45th day after the arrest or from the actual conviction date? If my summary suspension started in 2012 and I was convicted in 2014 and SSS was for three years then can i apply for an RDP? I have had an appointment with an officer in DMV wh told me that i'm eligible for a permit on 01/01/2015. I have a doubt. I do would need a lawyer to look at my record and, also, represent me for a formal hearing if I qualify
You are right to seek the services of a skilled DUI attorney. You should ask all questions of your attorney.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
Bring all of the questions you just asked before a qualified attorney to represent you in this matter. More information is needed and he/she will need to look thoroughly at your driving record along with the court records, to determine your options.
You should speak with an attorney who practices in formal hearings with the Secretary of State. While many attorneys do DUI defense, not all do hearings. To answer the one question I can, the SSS begins 45 days from the date of arrest and is NOT dependent or related to the plea date.
This comment is being left for informational purposes only and based solely on the information provided in the question. This comment does NOT create an attorney - client relationship. An attorney should be contact directly and given the full details of the specific circumstances in order to be best able to assist in the issues at hand.
The summary suspension begins on the 46th day after your arrest. You are not eligible for any relief until after the three year suspension period is over. I strongly advise you to retain counsel to represent you before the Secretary of State.
