TOP 3 Most Important Things To Do After a DUI An Attorney can help organize your defense
Request 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.
Find alternative transportation:
If your license is suspended, you will have a period of time which you may not drive. Plan to ride with others, take Uber or other transportation, ride a bicycle, or even stay close to your work for the necessary time period before you may lawfully drive.
Plan for court:
If you hire an attorney, they help you effectively plan your defense, and alternatives if you lose. It is important that the attorney is familiar with the court, DA's, and Judges in the county you were arrested in.
