DMV Hearings - Let a Lawyer Represent You!
Consult with a Tallahassee DUI Lawyer Before Your Appointment
One of the most common reasons your driver’s license can be suspended
is because of a drunk driving arrest. Before the suspension actually takes
effect, you may be required to attend an administrative hearing. This
hearing is your chance to challenge your arrest and try to get your license
back. Due to the magnitude of what is at stake, you cannot afford to go
without legal representation at your hearing.
A suspended license can prevent you from fulfilling daily obligations and
even cost you your livelihood. At Jansen and Davis, P.A., we understand
the seriousness of your situation. We can help you prepare before the
administrative hearing occurs and ensure that your rights are protected.
With over 50 years of experience, our Tallahassee DUI attorneys provide
counsel you can trust.
What can I expect at my administrative hearing?
This hearing occurs not long after the arrest occurred and includes the
arrested individual, their legal counsel, and the DMV. The driver is given
the opportunity to present evidence challenging the circumstances of their arrest.
Each piece of evidence should work to dispute the following:
- Did the police officer have probable cause to pull the driver over?
- Did the arrest occur under lawful circumstances?
- Was the driver informed of their rights?
- Was the chemical test properly administered?
Along with evidence, the driver can also present testimony and witnesses
to further their cause. An attorney can carefully develop the case on
behalf of the driver and convince the DMV hearing officer that the charges
should be dismissed.
The last thing you want is for your license to be suspended based on unlawful
charges. The administrative hearing is the most effective place to ensure
that this doesn’t happen and our firm is committed to working tirelessly
for you every step of the way.
