Fresno DUI Attorney: The 3 Most Important Things To Do After a DUI An Attorney can help organize your defense
DUI's and 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.
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 you 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.

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. Many times an attorney can appear on your behalf in misdemeanor cases. This takes a huge burden off any accused who has an attorney. This also allows you to fight your case, many times without the hassle of having to attend numerous hearings.
