By contacting an Orlando criminal defense attorney within a 10-day period you will be eligible to challenge the suspension of your driver's license that will automatically occur as a result of your DUI arrest. Failure to file the applicable paperwork with the DMV within the 10-day period will result in the loss of your ability to challenge the suspension.
While the charges associated with drunk driving are frightening and carry severe DUI penalties, you will also need to fight for your right to drive. After your arrest, you will be given a citation that allows you driving privileges for only 10 days. You will be involved in two cases:
A hearing must be requested from the DMV within 10 days of your arrest or else your driver's license will be automatically suspended for 6 months or up to 18 months for a subsequent refusal.
In order to request a DMV administrative review hearing:
If the results of the DMV hearing are unsatisfactory, and the suspension of your license is upheld, you have the right to an appeal, which may result in the hearing officer's decision being set aside or a new hearing in consideration of the appellate court's ruling. Upon hiring the firm of Ali & Blankner, we will file the necessary paperwork with the DMV and represent you during the course of the hearing.
