If you have been arrested for DUI in the Stockton area, contact the law office of the Stockton criminal attorney as soon as possible. How quickly you appoint an experienced defense attorney will have a dramatic effect on the outcome of your case.

In the state of California, being arrested for DUI will result in two separate justice processes each arrestee must deal with—a criminal case and a case with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

The law states that any person arrested for DUI has 10 calendar days from the date of their DUI arrest to request a hearing with the DMV. If you do not request this hearing, your license will be automatically suspended. You have the right to request a DMV hearing after the 10 calendar days; however the DMV has the right to refuse your petition. Many clients are confused as to why they must deal with the DMV, but remember that the DMV is its own government agency. The DMV can take away your license if you are a hazard on the road, and being arrested for drunk driving is indicator of that.

The possible consequences for a first-time misdemeanor DUI are as follows:

The Stockton criminal attorney has many years of experience working with both the DMV and the Stockton courts to get a client as little punishment as possible, if a dismissal of the charges all together is not possible.
