Guiding You At DMV Hearing
In Colorado, a DUI charges leads to two separate cases against you. The first is a criminal case in state court, and the second is a DMV hearing that determines whether you lose your driver’s license. We will represent you at both hearings. The future of your driving privileges rests with the DMV hearing.
A DMV hearing is time-sensitive, and you must apply for it within seven days. It focuses on specific issues such as whether law enforcement had a justifiable reasonable to stop you, whether the officer had probable cause in suspecting you had alcohol, and whether you took or refused a BAC test.
At the DMV hearing, we will do our best to protect your driver’s license. Our attorneys may appeal the suspension or help you obtain a restricted license allowing you to drive your vehicle to and from work or school.
Getting Your License Reinstated
If you have had your driver’s license suspended or revoked, you can attempt to get it back. However, you must meet a number of conditions that may include:
- Competing the penalty period ordered by the DMV
- Paying all related fees to the DUI charge
- Enrolling in a drug and alcohol education and therapy program
- Having to have ignition interlock device installed in your car
- Submitting proof of insurance
When fighting a DUI charge, do not do it alone. You need a seasoned attorney to help you, and we can do that.
