Determining Legitimacy of the DUI
At a DMV hearing in a DUI case, the hearing officer has to decide the validity of the case against you. They will ask three questions in relation to your arrest:
1. Were you were actually driving when arrested?
2. Were you lawfully arrested or was there misconduct?
3. Was your blood alcohol content (BAC) at .08% or higher when arrested?
There are a number of mistakes that law enforcement can make in their case against you. We aggressively search for these errors in order to fortify your defense. It is quite common that DUI cases can get overturned and by attending the DMV hearing, you are greatly enhancing your chances.
