Fresno DUI Attorney: The 3 Most Important Things To Do After a DUI An Attorney can help organize your defense

Fresno DUI Defense: The DMV: Request a hearing from DMV

In that request, ask for a "stay on the suspension of your driving privilege pending the outcome of the hearing" which will allow you to properly defend yourself against the .08 BAC action taken by the DMV.  An experienced DUI attorney can make this request on your behalf, it is rather routine for us.  However, time is of the essence, and the request must be made within 10 days from the citation. The DMV takes the DUI deadlines very seriously.

Find a DUI Attorney who has the Expertise to help you:

Any attorney can practice law, but you need a DUI Defense Attorney who understands DUI's.  The scientific expertise is every bit as specialized as many of the issues you find in serious crimes such as homicide.  Get an attorney that understands your case, blood tests, breath test results, and Field Sobriety tests. If your defense is a complicated scientific defense such as the rising blood alcohol defense, your attorney needs to understand the process by which alcohol enters the blood to properly cross examine the government expert witness.  Watch the slide show to learn more about the Rising BAC Defense:

Plan for court:

When you hire and attorney, they will coordinate with you for a plan to best defend you against this prosecution.  It is important that the attorney is familiar with the court, District Attorney, and Judges in the county you were arrested. Many times, an attorney can appear on your behalf in misdemeanor cases.  This removes the burden of missing work to attend court.  This also allows you to fight your case, many times without the hassle of having to attend numerous hearings.

Avoiding the Four D's

The four areas of law that commonly seem to have a cause-and-effect relationship are known as the Four D's: DUI, Domestic Violence, Discharge from Employment, and Divorce. There is a known domino effect; after one occurs, the next domino often falls (or the offense is repeated with greater negative consequences). For example, a DUI can cause stress on relationships and finances, and it tends to have negative work-related consequences as well. In many cases, divorce or domestic violence occurs soon after a DUI, in addition to discharge from employment. Any one of these events is tough to deal with on its own, but helping my clients avoid this domino effect is even more important.
