Getting arrested for a DUI in CA can be a very traumatic, humiliating and stressful experience. Your freedom, money, driving privilege are at risk, so consider hiring a professional, competent attorney to get you through it.
DMV License Suspension
You only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to protect your driving privilege by requesting a hearing on your suspension. CA is an "implied consent" state, meaning you agreed to the suspension of your license if arrested for a DUI UNLESS you request a hearing to fight the suspension. The cop should have given you a pink temporary license and taken your physical license. Provide this to your attorney so we can get a stay on your suspension, and begin the process of getting your license back.
If this is a first offense, with no injuries, your court appearances can be handled by your private attorney without you ever having to go to court. Avoid the embarrassment and humiliation, and save hours waiting like cattle in a slaughterhouse by having an aggressive attorney appear on your behalf.
